Puttin' On The Ritz

I'm going to go ahead and qualify this as my favorite outfit post to date.  The more I do this thing, the Queen City Style, the more excited I become.  At times, I feel the tiger has been unleashed.  the Queen City Style has all but consumed my passion and become my release; perhaps a lonely rival, even, to my running.  How do I say?...  It's like I see my responsibility similar to that of an actor, portraying a different role with each ensemble.  Whether you give my styling an A+ or a D-, you reading this right now warrants a big 'ole thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I thank God for facilitating the courage to pursue my relief, and I hope you enjoy reviewing the part as much as I enjoy playing it!
