Thankful

Hi Everyone!

This is a very tough announcement for me to make, but my MIL passed away yesterday.  Unfortunately, my amazing husband found her dead on the floor in her apartment.  She has been sick for a very long time, and he was doing everything he could to convince her to move to an assisted living place/nursing home.  She said she wouldn't do it, and we think that it's because she knew it was her time.  I firmly believe the following quote:

My MIL LOVED my husband with all of her heart.  He was her only child.  And, she raised an AMAZING son and husband.  I've watched for years as he has loved, honored, and taken care of her.  And, I'm blown away by how he does the same for me every single minute of the day.  She left him the sweetest note about how he was her joy and how he is the reason why she fought so long and so hard.  This note has given us SO much hope.  I'm eternally grateful to her for leaving it and every single detail about her wishes and insurance.

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

Thanks SO much for being here.

J. Crew Collection Watercolor Floral Blouse

Hi Everyone!

Please check the post after this one for an important note.

I received the J. Crew Collection Watercolor Floral Blouse earlier today, and I want to share a few IRL pictures of it.  The blouse is currently sold out on the J. Crew website, but it may reappear, and it may be available in retail stores.

A HUGE thank you to Debby who posted a review of this beauty in the JCA review post.  She also posted that she was returning the size 12 in this shirt because the 10 worked really well for her.  She was SO kind to  have the SAs hold the size 12 for me so that my amazing online VPS could have it shipped to me.  Thank you, Debby!

Here are a few IRL pictures of the blouse:






I absolutely LOVE this print!!!!!  What do you think of the J. Crew Collection Watercolor Floral Blouse?  Do tell!

An Open Letter to My AMAZING Very Personal Stylists

Hi Everyone!

It's no secret that I LOVE my J. Crew Very Personal Stylists.  So, today, I thought that I'd share part of a letter that I'm sending to J. Crew about them.

First, I've worked with my fabulous retail VPS for approximately 4 years.  I remember the first time she helped me with an Easter outfit.  I walked away thinking that she was super attentive and personable.  I really appreciated how she subtly challenged me to move outside of my comfort zone without being pushy.  And, the next time I was in the store, she remembered specific details from our previous conversation.  As I've worked with her throughout the years, she's become so much more than a VPS.  She cares about my career, my health, my success, and my amazing hubby.  Likewise, I care about her success, her family, and her career.  I can text her, call her, or email her for outfit inspiration and options.  And, she's coming to my house to help me organize outfits in my closet soon.  How generous is that?

Here is a picture of my AMAZING retail VPS.  I LOVE her style!


Her attention to detail, specifically her attentiveness to her clients’ needs is unmatched.  She’s passionate, reliable, knowledgeable, and outstanding.  My fashionable wardrobe reflects her exemplary styling skills.  I can't count the number of compliments I've received on the outfits she's created.  I don’t want to shop without her!!!  

My online VPS is equally amazing!!!!  I was SO nervous when my former online VPS took another position with the company because we had worked together for at least 2-3 years.  Let me tell you, my online VPS now has exceeded any expectations I've ever had about the VPS program.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her.  She answers the phone and my emails with such joy and excitement.  I feel like I'm talking to my best friend when I'm on the phone with her.  She even answers my emails within 30 minutes......on her days off!!!!  We have a great rapport, and I pray that she doesn't leave J. Crew.  I honestly don't know what I'd do without her.  

I genuinely appreciate my FANTASTIC Very Personal Stylists!

Thanks for stopping by!
