Gradual Steps into Something New...



Sometimes you just can't wait to wear something. Like this lace dress for instance, I got it at the end of summer last year and it's been sitting in my closet whispering to me ever since. It's far too thin to wear in the winter, but since it had brightened up a little bit (Note. these were taken last week before the rain & sleet we've been having this week), I thought why not and put it on for a quick trip to the post office. And though it may not look it, it was icy cold outside. The wind was like little pinches against the skin, though the warm sun was shining, just not enough to entice me to take my velvet jacket off to fully show the dress, maybe wear it again the spring/summer time. But, it did lift the spirit and give visions of flowers gently swaying in the light breeze that comes to cool the surroundings from the beating sun's warm glow. When I can wear this dress with no jacket on, no shoes, no stockings, just prance bare legged around the sea as the waves crash to and fro against the rocks and all is sublime. The salty essence against my lips and the birds saying hello from the wonderful skies above. Puffy clouds that look like peculiar shapes of bunnies and ladies floating by the daydreamer as you lay upon the sand...yes, I am ready for Spring. Little lambs, the sweet aroma of a flower's nectar, trees stretching forth with new leaves coming alive once more in a symphony of re-birth.  So excited :) It'll be here soon for those who are coming out of winter...let's enjoy it happening! Have a gorgeous day dolls!

Love loves

  16. Oh dear...Now you made me long for spring even MORE! And to be able to wear my summer dresses again... :) Understand why you just HAD to put that dress on - even though it might still be a bit too chilly for it. Very pretty! And I adore that jacket!!! Want one too :) And about that interview with Mrs. Murphy - sure I can do the interview and send it to you - with some pictures of her - when she has had time to answer her questions. Have already written them... :D <3 <3 <3

  20. Kizzy, that dress is gorgeous and how FABULOUS is that jacket! I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! I'm such a purple fanatic. It's a gorgeous velvet. So rich! And I love the brooch with it. The little dangling charms look so cute doll. I definitely know how you feel. I have my little spring stuff lined up. They're looking at me with little sad faces, saying "when are you going to wear me?" HAHAHA Yes, I do believe clothes can talk. Call it the Clothes Whisperer. HAHAHA Have a great day!

  25. I love how you brought out this dress despite the cold weather. I do like the layering. But I can't wait until it's warmer out so we can wear our dresses with bare legs!

    Love the butterfly ring too.

  27. Beautiful jacket and dress. I love the brooch and the color of the jacket is such a rich and beautiful color.
    I hope you are keeping warm and staying out of the rain and sleet. It is like a summer day here...it is in the 70's F. Hardly seems like winter which I really miss sometimes.

    As far as Naughty Alice is concerned i think you should try it, it reminds me of my youth, of the aromatic clove cigarettes, summer evenings and the cool meadow dew. I'm pretty sure you would like it as you are a sentimental person too, this perfume releases many memories:) Have a great Thursday!

  49. Why is is that the best clothes always end up hanging in the closet waiting for "the right moment"? I do that all the time! Got a lovely dress last year, yet haven't had the chance to wear it yet either. I'll try my best to follow your lead and wear them anyway;)
