Hello and happy GRATEFULNESS FRIDAY EVERYONE!!!

Woah, I know. ANOTHER gratefulness Friday?! I’ve had such great feedback from your comments to answer the giveaway question to enter and support from online vintage sellers who want to sponsor these giveaways. It’s hard to stop doing what you do when you know that people enjoy it — which is exactly why Gratefulness Friday may become a weekly occurring component of this site!

Last week’s giveaway with the Krickett’s Jewel asked the question, “Describe a moment you cried tears of joy.” I was nervous posing this question, because I wasn’t sure how you would respond to it. Was it too personal a question? Did you have a moment to remember when you cried tears of joy? Was it a question which took away the “positive” spin of Gratefulness Friday?!

So many insecurities ran through my mind as I pushed “publish.” But a quiet voice within told me that this was the right question to ask that week. And I’m happy to share that the quiet voice of wisdom within was CORRECT!

I can’t thank you all enough for leaving such thought-provoking responses to last week’s question! So without further ado, keep reading after the jump to learn how you can win the AMAZING vintage prize pack shown above thanks to giveaway sponsor Slapsy Maxi Vintage, and to learn what question I ask next to inspire your thoughts and feelings of gratefulness for all that you have and all that you are this week.

How to Modernize an ’80s Bustier

I had a TON of fun styling with this bustier because like a bustier designer would assert: It truly works magic on your top torso, cutting inches but adding confidence! I’m sure a lot of you would NEVER think to wear a bustier, believing that you just don’t “have the body” to pull it off. […]
