    oh baby….LOVE those fuchsia shoes…..I own and drive, everyday, (here in Cali) a fuchsia Italian Vespa motorscooter, so you know I’m always on the lookout for anything “fuchsia”

      Oooooh! You are so cool! I actually want to ride a Vespa. I chickened out on riding one when I went to Rome in 2010.

    Would love to vote for you, but alas, I don’t “do” Facebook; I’m at a disadvantage because it seems everything/everyone is on it…..but it ain’t my thang.

      I totally understand. Alot of my friends arent on Facebook too. I appreciate that you would vote for me if you had it! 🙂

    I always love your joy in colours. It adds pep and joy to your days, I’m sure.

      Thank you! Yes it does add pep & joy to my day, especially when Im not feeling so peppy.

    The colors on this are amazing! I absolutely love it. So many people are afraid to sport vibrant colors, especially plus size people, and I’m glad you went bold. You look great.

      Thank you! You are so right about people being afraid of wearing bold colors. I used to be that person but now Im ALL about the bold colors.

    That 2nd picture is too cute! Also you have such pretty ankles! I know that might be a weird body part to compliment but they’re so shapely and slender.

      Thank you! I inherited my ankles from my mom. She also had pretty ankles!

    I love what you did here. It’s very flattering – the stripes work really well and the bright colors make the outfit. I love the pink shoes!
