in a galaxy far far away, there used to be a girl called P who wore solids in gray, white, black and navy on heavy rotation. black and gray were exceptional favourites. this girl also hoarded black shoes. she then met another girl who became one of her best friends. this bff showed her the ways of the jedi and introduced her to colour and print (actually P taught her about what a jedi was and all things geeky.. but i digress..)
i have to say, looking at pictures of me about 5 years ago compared to now, it's astonishing what kind of evolution my closet has had. colours, ruffles, lace, prints galore. and sparkles. my goodness, if there are sparkles, sign me up. while i still love my neutrals and solids, i'm grateful that i have tried new things. we've gone through a lot together with our work, relationships, family, health, and i'm lucky she's a part of my life.
if i'm being a bit sentimental, i sometimes think we forget to thank those who are closest to us. i am blessed to have many wonderful friends and especially I and K who are always with me each day and put up with me in every way.
