One of my fabulous readers sent me this email:
Hey Miss Danielle,
I had to write you to let you know that I absolutely love your website/blogspot! You always stay up on posting the trendy fashions of today. I visit all the time to find out what's new out there in the fashion world. Keep up the good work! I also like how you find and post links on most of the fashions that are worn by the artists and actresses, so that everyday people can find the similar styles. I have a birthday party coming up and the theme is Purple Harts (my favorite color) so everyone at my party has to show up in an outfit that somehow correlates purple. My party is 3 weeks away and I myself have not found the perfect outfit to wear. I'm looking for a form fitting affordable sweater dress or any stylish yet not over the top cute purple outfit. Do you think you can help me out? I did find something that I liked while cruising the internet that Rihanna was wearing, http://www.ultimate-rihanna.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=36 (minus the cleavage hanging out) but I have no idea on how to find that outfit or anything similar. So if you could help me out and bless me with some of your fashion sense I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks Girl.
Well Miss Nina, I will do my best to help you pull together a wonderful birthday ensemble!
