Good morning!  If you're wondering why I'm so chipper so bright and early, it's because I'm having a great week so far!!  Remember that big exam I took?  Well, I passed it (and I honestly wasn't sure if I did!)  Now all I have is 8 months worth of grad school, and I'm done!  We celebrated over pizza and a movie last night.  I'm thinking we need to stretch this out though, because I can always use an excuse to go eat at Paulette's.  = )  I hope everyone is having a wonderful week, and thank you so much for all the well wishes on the certification exam!  I'm excited to be able to take a little break and not stress about school for a couple weeks.  Now it's time to focus on that big presentation I have to make at work next month.  = )

Thank you so much for stopping by the Trend Spin Linkup with The Fashion Canvas and myself! Today's trend is black and white! Show us how you wear it - a clutch, scarf, romper or an entire outfit. It doesn't matter what clothing item it is or where it's from; we'd love to see it. Here are our top 2 metallic looks from last week.

That Dress is Gorgeous Laura. It embraces your curves perfectly. And, like I was telling Annie too I love Black, White & Yellow paired together. Your Yellow Clutch is beautiful. 2 Great Fashion Minds think alike.

I wore a B+W on the actual day today as well as on the blog (from some days ago). I will surely link up a Black+White Look.

Stop by my blog when you can. Welcome anytime.

Thanks, Ada. =)
