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.
