Well this little CC is going to forgo that tradition and in it's place feature something that is so beautiful I can hardly even believe it is real.
Quilted Little Stam To Buy
If budgets were not a factor this lady would buy this handbag as the official 1-year present to myself. But alas it is so I will continue to pretend I own this handbag via my image gallery similar to Cher and her computerized closet.*
So to reflect on the first year of the CC, I would say the following:
Donna Karan Hosiery The Signature Collection
Perfect Opaque Tights To Buy
Would you believe these tights are my favorite thing I have bought in the last year? Who knew hosiery could be so revolutionary? They truly are the tight I have been searching for all my life. To that tip from my sister-in-law...I will forever be grateful.
No clothing. No jewels. A pair of tights is going to go down as the best purchase of Couture Cheapskate Year 1.
And do you want to know what would come in 2nd?
Maybelline EyeShadow in Green Gardens
I seriously love this eye shadow. The colors are beautiful and stay put without any creasing on your eyelids for an entire day. I would venture to say the colors are equally striking after being worn for a few hours when they settle and get a bit of shimmer. The perfect pallete of mixed metals and soft feminine florals.
So CC friends, as a token of my gratitude for your support this year, I will be hosting our First CC Giveaway!
Leave a comment in the comments section telling CC what trend you are most looking forward to this upcoming spring or summer.
We will pick a winner at random from the comments and they will win a pair of Donna Karan tights and the Green Gardens Eyeshadow Quad. Last day to leave a comment is Thursday, April 21. All lame comments will be tossed like last year's gauchos.
*Extra eyeshadow giveaway to the first reader who can correctly identify the movie being referenced.
So thank you for reading CC friends!
