Trend Alert-Tortoise Shell Accessories

Today is a big day in the United States.  Today, we remember the events that unfolded eleven years ago in New York City, Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania.  When this happened, it scared me to death.  The scariest part was just not knowing what was going on.  When the first plane crashed into the World Trade Center, I thought it was just a terrible accident.  When the second plane crashed, I knew something was very wrong but still didn’t grasp the severity of the situation.  It was a little before the third plane crashed into the Pentagon that the news suggested this was a terrorist attack.  I was at work and shortly after that, our office building received a bomb threat.  We were evacuated and my boss told us to all go home.  The craziest part was that THE DAY BEFORE I flew home from a business trip!  If I had stayed one more day, I would have been stranded.  Isn’t it crazy how life works out, sometimes?

OK-let’s move on to fun new trends!  Tortoise shell is the material of choice for accessories right now.  This is a new trend for the fall/winter season.  Speaking of the fall/winter season, make sure you read my post on Friday for a preview of what’s going to be big this season!!!  Here are some of the new accessories that you can afford to add to your wardrobe!  If you have always loved tortoise shell, like me, you’ll love these!
