"That's a lot of look."

You don't do anything understated. It's all about bold prints, bright colors, and the latest designer fashions for take-charge women like you. If you're in the room, you want to everyone to notice — and with the look you're flaunting, that's not a difficult task.

"Carry on."

Look up "laid-back" in the dictionary and there should be a picture of your smiling face. You know how to roll with the punches and don't allow life's hiccups to sidetrack you. While you're completely low-maintenance, you know how to work the casual look that that goes with your lifestyle.
