1.  Thanks to everyone who responded to my name change poll.  “Hourglassy” and “Red Violet Project” tied for first place and gave me an angst-ridden week.  Then a friend called it “Red Velvet” on Monday and another called it “Blue Violet” on Wednesday and broke the tie.  So look for the “Hourglassy” name change soon!

2.  I’m trying to schedule a bra fitting for two teenage girls.  Budget will be an issue.  What is the absolute minimum of bras (type, style, color) that you think a high school girl should have in her lingerie drawer?

3.  Finally, let’s see if I can do a better job reviewing winter coats before the spring than I did reviewing swimsuits before the fall.  Brooke’s comment about Gina’s green raincoat has me looking for coats with flattering princess seams.  If you find a coat that looks great on you, please share it with us!

I’m in love with this Strenesse Gabriele Strehle coat that I found in October’s Real Simple.  You can find it on the company’s website here.  Is there any chance it would lay correctly at the chest?   I’ll let you know if I  find out.
