La Vie en Rose: Tied Up and Twisted in Fuchsia

Beside being hot it's been incredibly muggy and it's supposed to stay for the next five days, oh joy. I was able to brave the heat and buy some fabric for a sundress I am making. I'm hoping to finish it in time for my trip to Chicago in a few weeks! It cooled off in the evening which was perfect, I was able to convince my mother to take a few pictures for me in her garden. Her roses are looking so lovely! I thought "la vie en rose" was most befitting for this post. Besides my mother's roses looking so lovely, it is most certainly a motto I live by. Some of you may have notice that there are a few pieces of jewelry that I am never without. The bracelet that I wear in fact has those very words inscribed on it. It's a reminder how important is it to have belief in things turning out for the best. It's incredible to see how your "joie de vie" effects those you encounter. I'm interested in what some mottos are that you live by, care to share?    






The scarf and white kitten heel pumps are both thrifts ($2+$4). The light blue sundress was a gift ($0). The button-up blouse in quite old on sale from Express ($18). And the earrings are from Francesca's ($12).
Total out of pocket: $36

Thank you mother dear for taking such lovely pictures for me.

  14. Your blog is very inspiring and I appreciate your wonderful ideas and tastes when it comes to fashion. I am not really a blogger but whenever I found people like you, it inspire me to write and enjoy every pieces of clothes I have in my closet. Being fashionista needs not your clothes to be expensive but how you wear it with confidence.
