Tara explains why she got so frustrated with Wilson, and why she thinks green is in.

Once the music started and the party began, all was fine. The guests were excited, and it turned out to be a wonderful event! Again I was reminded that one can only do so much. And though Wilson thinks I don't appreciate his contributions, I did appreciate his garbage picking skills, which resulted in the green bottles we used as vases. And even though it's not my management style to pull rank, Ambria is right, he needs to learn a thing or two about the pecking order. It may sound harsh, but I find him at times to be naively overconfident.

When I left the advertising world and started my second time around at Second Time Around, the timing was good. While most businesses are suffering, the consignment business is booming. Though some smart shoppers have been hip to frugal shopping for years, others have been humbled by the economic downturn and are now looking for new ways to save, or make, a penny.

Not to mention, many of us are conscientious about our impact on the environment. I like to say we are in, "the green of fashion." In recycling fashion, consigning items, and giving them a new home, we are reducing our carbon footprints.That's not to say we need to have a fully recycled wardrobe, but it's a step in the right direction. Kinda like not letting the water run when you brush your teeth. Turn it OFF!
