A Red Carpet Event


Don’t you just love the Academy Awards? It’s thrilling to fantasize about having an occasion to wear a dress like the ones on the red carpet while wondering if there are Spanx with that much power. We always print out the award categories and tally our own votes. …

Toffee and Friends
