You can plan and plan and plan, but things just don’t pan out like you would want. Plans sometimes get cancelled. I was just looking up Murphy’s Law. It states, that “Anything That Can Go Wrong, Will Go Wrong.” Lol! If you haven’t heard, the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam in Panama City Beach, Florida got cancelled this year because of Hurricane Hermine. Wouldn’t you just know it, the very time I have a trip to Panama City Beach, and a hurricane comes through. There hasn’t been a hurricane in ELEVEN years. Seriously, I hate it for all the folks involved. I hope the destruction is kept to a minimum. I know it will be a big blow to shop owners, hotels, and the city for the lack of money that would have been coming their way this Labor Day.Joe and I had already packed and we had been on the road for about an hour. He decided to stop and go grab a bite to eat. We each had a salad, after all I was going to have on a bathing suit the next day, and then left. I pulled up my emails, only to see that the event had been cancelled. BUMMER!!! We thought about going somewhere else since we were already packed, but decided in the end to just come back home. I won’t lie, it was somewhat of a let down. I was looking forward to getting away for a few days, just Joe and I, and acting like kids. Oh well, there is always next year! Lol!After we got home, I unpacked, and then proceeded to but lots and lots of Plunder jewelry. There is a brand new line that just went on sale today, so I ordered several pieces to be able to show you. I told Joe that I had to sacrifice for you gurls. How would you know there was new pieces if I didn’t show them to you. Haha I don’t think he bought it! I am also blown at how nice you gurls are. You could buy Plunder from another stylist, but you choose to buy from me. That is unbelievable!!! I have decided to not be like the cell phone companies, they only give rewards to “new” customers. I think the customers who have been loyal and stick with you also need rewarding. So, I am going to be giving away a necklace this month to two of my customers. I just want to randomly say thank you.I have on a mixture of vintage and new jewelry today. I purchased the red beads and the red polka dot bangle at a vintage fashion show years ago. These type necklaces are easy to wear either long, medium, or short. They are also very inexpensive. The short hanging arrow necklace is a new addition to my ever growing Plunder jewelry. The necklace is called the Harper, and it has a matching bracelet (Bonny) that I have worn several times. (here and here) If you wish to purchase anything from Plunder, I would appreciate it if you went to my website. You have to type in http://www.plunderdesign.com/taniastephens or you can enter my stylist number in the “box” when you go to checkout. #241007Here is a closeup of my By The Book Bracelets that I bought while visiting my sister last fall. You can purchase these through Christian Books. My favorite bracelet is the one that has Jeremiah 29:11.Here is another simple T-Strap sandal. This one is by Marc Fisher, and it is really red. I don’t usually wear red shoes. Don’t ask me why, I have no idea. My red sneakers are about the only other red pair I own. Nope, I was wrong, I have a pair of red ankle boots that the District woman’s club bought for me, but I haven’t got to wear them very much.This is the way I transition into fall. I wear my normal outfits, and will just add a jacket or cardigan. As it gets colder, I will add ankle boots or knee high boots. Of course I will start adding the “fall” colors, but just a little at a time. Today’s dress is a tank dress, so wearing a denim jacket was super easy as a light transition piece. Both of these pieces are from Old Navy. My sister had been raving about her T-Shirt dress that she bought at Old Navy, in black of course, so I thought I would try one. Actually, I ended up trying two!!! You talk about comfortable, these are fabulous. They are a knit swing dress that has a silky feeling and is very flowy. They do not “cling” to you at all, so that is a BIG plus. I hate anything that shows my rolls and bumps.

Haha I have never had plans so far in advance before. I can’t wait to see who will be at next year’s event. I think I may take today off work anyway, I have already made all the necessary arrangements. I can just work on some things I have been wanting to do for the blog, and lay by the pool.
