And then literally it was months and months of thinking about it and thinking, 'I'm not going to do it, I'm not going to do it,' " she told Elle magazine. "But then she said, 'Right, if you're going to buy it, you have to wear it all the time.' I wore it every day last year and I'm going to wear it every day this year. »
