There are many words in the English language that could be used to describe me. Quirky is a good one. Efficient would be another. A word you won't find on that list is stylish.
No, I've never cared much about the latest trends. The worst thing of which you could accuse me regarding those is that I usually eventually do follow them, just a few
That said, I have to give a huge shout-out to the phenomenal crew at Shabby Apple. They have supplied me with a gorgeous and OH-so-stylish dress from their nifty Mad Hatter collection that elevates my level of sophistication simply by hanging in my closet. Now, if only I had an event to which I could wear it...
