Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 3/30/12
Ah Spring is most definitely in the air, my friends. And with that comes…cold and allergy season! I don’t know about where you are, but New York is full of sick people. Birds chirping, flowers blooming, commuters coughing. Lovely. I have been sick now officially the entire month of March. Here’s hoping for a more healthful April!
