Aw, you only got to see a little of my new friend Colin who brought in the cuff he thought was previously owned by Coco Chanel. We broke out in dance during his consignment. He has a gentle and fluid presence about him, which is so beautiful. I asked if he was a dancer, and he said he practiced a yoga-based dance called 5 Rhythms, and so have I. Soon we were off moving about like Fred and Ginger. Sadly our little routine didn’t make the final cut, but come join us during a Tuesday class. It was a treat for him, as well as Ambria and me to visit Elle magazine and explore their accessories closet. Have I shared how much I love my job?
As for my opening up and sharing some personal stuff, let me quote F. Scott Fitzgerald, "The blurred world seen from a merry-go-round settled into place, the merry-go-around suddenly stopped."
Listen, we all have our vices, some more than others. I trust it's about being honest with oneself and trying to strike a balance in life, day-by-day, minute by minute. Breathe. Be bold and beautiful. Don't be afraid to show who you are. We all experience bumps in the road; it's how we respond to it, take action and process it that matters.
Love and light, until we fashion hunt together again. . .peace and plaid!
I love this show! And it is fantastic you supported generosity water. When one sees the actual results from a charity event, its an awesome thing.
Thank you for sharing your story; I'm sure it was difficult to do so. Your story is a familiar one and it probaby resonated with a lot of people, such as myself.
You are a very brave and bright young woman - wishing you all the best!

I never write on these blogs but my brother is a recovering alcoholic and your personal story hit home with me. Be very proud of yourself for making the change necessary in your life. Continued success to you! I love the show and hope it comes back for season two!
Tara, I think you're very brave for talking about your personal issue on TV especially after being 10 months sober. I'm sure you've helped a lot of people. I love this show and hope it comes back!
