Blushing Prints in the Snow*

   I never like a stereotype that says florals or POPPING prints are just for spring and summer play! I mean when you’re Polished for Pennies, sometimes you’ve got to break into that closet of yours and use EVERYTHING, no matter the seasonal flare,  to get out of the “I have nothing to wear today” […]

Shake It Off*

Together We Walk*

How beautiful is Zarina in her baseball cap!  Standing sweetly by the register at Starbucks, Zarina complimented my H&M dress that’s probably about 3 years old. She made my oldie feel goodie by just being herself and sharing her confidence. A beautiful gal inside and out deserves the shout! Thank you Zarina for being wonderful […]
