Bill Cosby Cute.

Presenting the absolute cutest little skirt + sweater set I have ever seen, fashion fans. I wore this to the first round of Kansas City Fashion Week shows, and kept affectionately referring to it as “Bill Cosby cute.” It’s on trend for fall + winter (matchy-matchy separates: check; neutral palette: check) but with enough oomph to keep it interesting....more

I must confess that I have always "lived" for a fashion show. The thrill of watching the lights go down and the anticipation of not knowing what would be unleashed from the darkness would take breath away.
