Friday Fashion News - Edition #8 (Plus a San Antonio Giveaway)

The week went really fast...cannot believe it is Friday...but here we are!  The beautiful studs above were sent to me from EvesAddiction.com, a jewelry website. The have an amazing selection of gorgeous designer inspired jewelry...you will spend a lot of time looking over all they offer! And I love the earrings sent to me!

Next up, actress Eva Mendes, now has her own line sold at New York and Company!

I particularly liked the camel coat and jacket in her collection.

Lot's of emotion for me Friday night as Stacy and Clinton officially end What Not to Wear.  Ten years ago, they were the ones who oversaw my makeover and taught me how to dress and return to life again.  I will always be eternally grateful, though we have never met.  Yes, I was the frumpy woman in the Christmas sweater who had given up and did not care.  When I saw myself on their show (not really, but close enough)it was a major wake up call. They helped me to realize what a psychological statement our choice of clothing makes.  Thank you Stacy and Clinton for all of the women you have helped in the last ten years.
