  1. Thanks for the reply! It has been a lot of fun and something I have been wanting to do for years! So here we go! I am enjoying looking over your blog as well, lots of fun, I always have a soft spot for the fashion industry and even got to study it in Italy a couple summers ago. Such a fascinating part of our human existence!
