Fixated.


Not sure if this happens to anyone else, but there are times when I'm so excited about a a new purchase  that I stubbornly decide I'm going to wear it no matter what. Like this morning, for example, even though I had tried to style this awesomacular dusty pink tissue thin very loose (think tent!) top in about 20 different ways that didn't work, I didn't want to back down from the challenge. Instead, I turned into this crazy obsessed mad woman who was fixated on wearing it and spent Oooo let's say a good 30 minutes rummaging through a crapload of clothes. 
Why I do this to myself, I just don't know. I guess it's just part of my charm or something. Ha!

Oh, and of course, after spending quality time with my closet this am, I thought about a million and a half other ways to style it while going about my day. It's kind of like, when you're in a situation, and you don't know what to say, but afterwards think of all the best comebacks. 
Damn you brain! Why must you fail me?!

Well anyhoo, here's the winner of this mornings clothing battle as seen at the
Concord Farmers Market / Michael Jackson Tribute Band concert:
(and yes, the tribute band was totally amaze-a-balls!)

Mama and her favorite flower, Daisy.

Up close and personal.

I don't know why, but that second picture reminds me of your mother when she was younger. I think it's the way the lighting hits the back of your hair that gives the picture a vintage look.
