blog series: fashionable friend Friday!

Happy Friday everyone!  I'm so thrilled to introduce you to Elizabeth (or Lizzie as I call her) Pontarelli. :) 

We used to work together a few years ago, and have remained friends since.  She has this infectious laugh, and you can't help but adore her. 

A couple of weeks before Christmas I invaded her condo and took a ton of pictures (several of which I'm sharing with you here) and we did a little interview...
