I made a new friend today! I’m thrilled to have worked with the ridiculously talented and super cool Chris Smart at csmartfx. Head over to his street style blog and show him some love! Seriously, he’s a sweetie!
An old lady told me that I looked pretty in my outfit today! It made my day!! She was so sweet! I love when old people compliment me on my style, because they were young when style actually meant something.
I had a conversation recently with a beautiful older lady about crinoline underskirts (also called a petticoat), something I wear often to give my dresses and skirts more shape (any time I’m wearing an a-line, you can bet there’s one under there). She told me that when she was in highschool in the 1950s, she had a whole box of crinoline underskirts — one in every colour, to match every single dress she owned. She told me that I looked lovely, and her compliment meant so much to me. Her name was Victoria, she was drinking a gin on the rocks, and she was the most interesting person in the room.
