It's that time of the year again... those precious few days when we have accomplished all the obligations of Christmas but not yet started the new year's rat race just yet... the [possibly only] time of the year when one has time to evaluate the past and make some plan...

I have not been this happy with a top for a long time as I am with this one. If I could wear it every day, I would! It is a piece that every woman with shorter legs [and medium to wide shoulders] should immediately buy, it is that flattering. And you will have to trust...
