Pop Art

The color of today's dress is called "pop art," which is such a unique way to describe this vibrant orange. I'm definitely rocking a 1970s vibe with the orange dress and bronze footwear, which is fitting considering the recent passing of David Bowie. It's always upsetting when someone who has contributed so much to pop culture dies at such a young age (only 69).

Dress: Trina Turk Lenci Fit and Flare Dress

This cute yet sexy dress is still available at the following retailers:

Shoes: Manolo Blahnik Specchio BB Pumps in Bronze

I will also take this time to thank my husband, family and close friends for being so supportive this past week. One week ago, while driving home after work, I was hit by a driver who ran a red light. I'm thankful to be unharmed, as was the other driver, but it did throw me off balance for several days. I even took two days off from work - something I rarely do  - to get my head back together. 

Unfortunately, I was in my husband's beloved Tesla at the time. He was out of town, and was encouraging me to feel more comfortable driving it. My own car had been flashing up some maintenance alerts, so it just made sense to drive the Tesla. Then, of course, on the first day I'm driving it... It does seem strange that such an event happened in January, just hours after my last blog post. I just hope I'm not jinxed for life! January is just not a good month for me.

I was hit HARD, and by a work truck (not a tractor trailer, but, funnily enough, an AAA truck), so the fact that I only suffered some minor bruising and soreness leads me to believe that the Tesla is an extremely safe car and, perhaps, one that saved my life.

We still don't know what will happen to the Tesla, so it's a wait and see game right now. I know the accident was not my fault, so I can at least take comfort in that fact.

I KNOW that you must be sore all over; please tell us that you saw a doctor?! ... because, I am here to tell you that it is NOT a forgiving thing to do , to downplay this; Car injuries can raise their ugly heads years and years later !! I am sure it is not a harbinger of a bad year !! BE WELL!
