Folks, I'm going to be honest with you. I love a good scandal. Celebrity, corporate, royal, you name it, (although the thing with Martha Stewart was pretty unfair). I especially like a good government scandal no matter which political party is involved. So I can't help but comment on latest goings on with the General Services Administration, GSA. They're supposed to be monitoring the spending of other government agencies, while all along they were living it up on our tax dollars! Did you see what they did in Vegas? Had I been working for this agency, the only expense submitted by me would have been a paltry $50 Goodwill invoice. But what's new, that's the government. Anyway, this isn't a politic blog and lord knows I'm not as savvy about those things as I should be.
So why is my post titled "Corporate Vacation", when I've talking about the government? They're two completely different things right? Just stick with me for a minute and I'll explain.
I was playing around in the closet and noticed how this "new" tropical print wrap, had the same color blue as this blazer. Just for kicks, I put the two on to see how they looked together. The wrap looks vacationy and the blazer look corporate. Corporate vacation. And the government bails out corporations after the executives have spent all the company money on vacations right?
Back to the clothes. I have to say, I do love these wraps. They're great bathing suit cover ups and they also double as dresses or skirts. When I'm vacationing I'm tempted to buy them, but they always cost at least $18. No way am I paying that! That's why I jumped on this for $1.
This is the kind of post that happens when you have a glass of wine before taking photos.

As lousy as our government can be sometimes, I still love living here in the good ol' U.S. of A!
Thanks for indulging me in my quirkiness
today. I'll be back to my normal self by next post (maybe).
Until then, happy dressing,
