Capris, cardigans and Clinton Kelly made this courthouse reporter smile



When I'm not writing here about shopping deals, I cover criminal justice topics. It's always amusing when my two worlds collide. I'll be talking to a lawyer in a suit about a serious legal thing, and he'll go, "Aren't you a Deal Diva? My wife loves your blog!" Ha!

Well, I love this blog, too. Courthouses aren't exactly fashion houses. Surprise, surprise. There's a whole lotta orange (as in, jail uniforms). And too-small shirts. And people who forgot they were going out in public that day and never changed out of their jammies.

For the past 2+ years, chatting with all of you about the terror of shoulder pads and the Oscars' red carpet has provided a fun change of pace. And some major excitement. Remember the interview with What Not to Wear's Clinton Kelly? Pinch me.

We've debated what was in (capris, maybe; cardigans, always). We've wondered what in the world some celebs were thinking when they got dressed. And, together, we've drooled over the latest-and-greatest things that are worth spending our hard-earned cash on, or better to skimp on for the good of our bank accounts.

The time has come, however, for me to tackle some new topics. That means I won't be blogging regularly. But I'll still be writing for the St. Pete Times, and I won't be able to resist chiming in once in awhile on the lively conversations here. 

Thanks for being such great readers! See you at the the sales racks, of course.
