Inspired by Project Runway: A Welcome Addition to Workshop is Coming Soon

I had the pleasure of winning a $100 Amazon gift card from Hearst Magazines back in March 2012, and it's been "burning a hole in my pocket" since. It took a lot of thought.... buy something for fun, buy something to help invest in my business? So.... when I was watching Project Runway (Season 10), I was inspired to make my fun investment purchase:
