Why Don't You...?

… hike up the draping skirt of your T-Bags String Halter Long Dress, take the hand of a cute boy, and plunge straight into a cool fountain? Remember darlings, lots of splashing is an absolute necessity!

…give into the protests of your unused green thumb and grow a garden full of delicate daisies? In the words of Beverly Nichols, “To be overcome by the fragrance of flowers is a delectable form of defeat.”

…step into Proenza Schouler’s Platform High Heel Sandals and spend the afternoon practicing your catwalk? Don’t forget to take a cue from Madonna and…Vogue!

…replace each and every meal with fresh strawberries and homemade whipped cream? Face it, my loves; no one can argue against the fact that such a delicacy is just as healthy as it is scrummy!

…slip into Nanette Lepore’s Saloon Gal Dress, step into your front yard, and spin around and around, watching the skirt billow out elegantly around you?


Fashionably yours!

today i had strawberries for dessert. i love it when the food you eat is free- and from the garden. then its obviously healthy..
picking for 2 hours- well it wasn't that wonderful.. but neccessary.. the berries grow so fast- and mom is gonna make jam for the whole family- so i need to help her pick pick pick ;)
take care
xx ediot

I love that your say scrummy! So cute! And I just received a package of Sherrie's Berries. Best chocolate dipped strawberries in the world.

I'd love to own a big billowy skirt. Not so much for practical wearing, but for twirling and the like.

Leah said...

I love the bohemian vibe of that platform sandals. And I have always dream of growing my flower garden but I don't have a green thumb when it comes to flowering plants... someday I wish I can... I think I will.

Have a great day Erika! xoxo
