Hey, BABs! Did you miss me? I was off getting my MRS but it’s good to be back! My first order of business is to find Elise a Claire Pettibone look-a-like for a steal. As we all know our dear Claire likes to hawk her dresses for a pretty penny. But most of us gals are still in a paycheck to paycheck , too much month at the end of the money budgetary situation. Oh, we’ve graduated from Kool-aid and Cup-O-Noodles. But spending several grand on a one-time-use dress is out of our realm of thought for a lot of us.
