I am going to ask you guys a question today.  What do you think love is and how far would you go for love?  I am curious to read your opinions.  This beautiful sunset was captured at a nearby pond.  Sometimes you just happen to catch the perfect light.  This dress is slightly oversized, but I think it looks adorable that way.  It is 100% cotton so it is very comfortable to wear this time of year.  I wore it with some Alaia sandals I've had since 2010.  The shoes are more comfortable than they look.  Alaia shoes are always comfortable.  I also wore a bow necklace that I am not sure I have worn before.  I can't remember.  The Gucci bag was worn in the last post and is also old, as are the sunglasses.  I am getting really into thrifting and vintage.  There are so many treasures to be discovered, like this dress.  I feel like I am transported back in time.  I think I was supposed to be a teenager in the late 60s and early 70s.  Happy Tuesday to you all!

I bought this dress for under $45.  Can you believe it?  It is the perfect Easter dress.  I paired it with a bunny necklace of course.  How could I resist?  This past year was perhaps the most difficult year of my entire life.  However, it was also the year that transformed me.  I never understood why people wouldn't want to go back in time.  Now I know why.  You grow so much wiser.  A year really can change you a lot.  You don't want to go back because you know so much more now.  Sometimes life makes you take off your rose colored glasses.  Maybe you liked wearing them, but it was time to grow up.  It is sort of like pulling the curtain back and exposing harsh truths about life.  You can't unsee some things.  That's the way life is unfortunately.  I feel stronger than ever at this point in my life.  I live with no regrets too.  All that happens is meant to happen I think.  I didn't mean to go off on a tangent, but I really can't help it.  I could go on and on about this outfit, but we all know that the material things mean nothing in life.  They mean absolutely nothing.  I would trade in everything to have all my pets back.  This is just what I do because I like being creative and I enjoy fashion.  So now I will tell you that I bought a sewing machine and I am excited to start designing some pieces and perhaps editing some pieces in my closet to update them or tailor them for a better fit.  I feel alive and ready to face the world once again.  I now know that I can take whatever crap anyone or anything wants to throw at me.  Bring it on!

I am in love with these vintage rainbow jeans I found.  They fit perfectly around my waist and have a great cut.  I paired them with the softest ribbed baby tee in a cool retro color.  I have a fatal attraction to this color as well as orange and yellow.  I don't even care if the colors look good on me.  They just make me happy so I wear them anyway.  I also wore this tee on my short trip to Vegas last week with black skinny jeans, a black leather motorcycle jacket, and black Converse sneakers.  It was really warm when I wore this look, but not too hot for the ensemble.  When it gets hotter I am much happier so you tend to see me smiling a bit more.  The death of my little toy poodle Bella really upset me.  She died unexpectedly and she died in my arms.  I was powerless to do anything to save her.  She was my first dog as an adult and my first toy poodle.  I have had three toy poodles so far and they are my dog of choice.  I am that toy poodle snob now and perfectly okay with it.  However, I am a huge animal lover in general.  I used to have six adopted guinea pigs if you can believe it.  I am such a sucker.  If you follow me on Instagram you can see photos of my new girl Lulu as well as all my dogs (past and present) and guinea pigs.
