A Deal Diva departs...
After two years as a Deal Diva there's a few things I've learned about fashion.
1. You don't have to spend a ton of money to look great, (but you should for certain things.)
2. It's more about how YOU feel in the clothes than what anyone else thinks.
3. Tampa Bay residents have awesome style.
And 4. For some reason Deal Diva farewell blog posts often involve numerical entries. Go figure...
Nonetheless, these are great lessons to have learned and ones that I'll never forget as I move into the next chapter of my career. Friday was my last day as a Times reporter and Deal Diva. I will be working as a local editor for an AOL news website.
Beyond our love for shoes, bags and Macy's coupons, the Deal Divas have always been about helping. That help came in many forms, from money saving tips to a confidence booster for plus size girls. That's what I'll miss the most. Oh, and the Nordstrom's Cafe Bistro Diva lunches.
I'm getting a salad next time girls (inside joke!)
Thanks for the good times!
