Powder blue

I love the sound of
"powder blue"
If any product 
was named this 
I would buy it
no matter what it is

this outfit embodies
my love for this name

Très Bien Shop
I wanted this dress with all my heart
but it was sold out everywhere
when I was thrifting the other day 
I found its exact replica 
in a skirt version

I am absolutely thrilled 
I love jewl-tone bright 
with pastels right now

the dress
I lusted after

Hay Dress

here is my take
(If you look closely)
you can see that my 1950s 
top includes velvet poodles
