Holy Chic!

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. I’m so happy to see you today my friend.  Shall we have a little tea. ☕ I’m swooning over this very pink Outfit. Today a friend is picking me up for lunch.  Yeah! She said it’s a belated birthday gift, and she’s treating.  Double, double YEAH! Before she arrives I wanted to share some really good info with you. especially if you are like me & have champagne taste on a root beer budget.  It’s fashion week in London!(Big smile) Actually what I REALLY wanted to say is that no matter how RICH one may be,  there are many places to put money that may just as well be saved.  And may I also mention as a former elementary school teacher… I’m FAR from being rich.  However I’ve always loved fashion, and a great bargain. THE FASHION HOUSE A few months ago I stumbled across this … Continue reading
