Dear Fashion Friend:

This dress, made from lace and polyester, would be a lovely addition to your wardrobe for 2019! The exquisite lace design around the shoulder region provides for the attire’s sensuous touch! And the model! She wears this ensemble beautifully! I love how she arranged her hair, and I love her choice of jewelry and makeup. Her eyes are those of someone ready for the upcoming year! As the New Year dawns, I can imagine her thinking these words from the poet Edith Lovejoy Pierce: “We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity, and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.” 

Best wishes, dear Fashion Friend, for a Happy 2019.
