As I strolled down the city streets this lovely spring day... I couldn't help but notice men, short or tall, young or old, sporting bags, bags and more bags!
It's official, spring is here! It is time to start thinking about putting away the heavy winter duds and breaking into something new, fresh and boldly colorful.
