I have a dream of being a Cabbages and Roses kind of girl.
Do you know what I mean?
I grew up in the arid dessert of Southern California (Pasadena). As school approached, every year, we would receive catalogs full of plaid and wool and dark colors. The stores would be full of these same kind of autumnal/winter fashions. Hungry for and excited about the change of season, our parents would fill our drawers and closets with these adorable outfits. The first day of school, we would be dressed to the teeth and drippingly hot. Sometimes the temperature would be in the hundreds (Fahrenheit)! We still had a couple of months to go before we got cool rainy weather and the trees would start to change their colors. The next day, finished with our first impressions, we would all be in shorts again!
Who came up with that ritual?
Well, now I live where the air has turned brisk at the appropriately fashionable time!
I would love to be a Cabbages and Roses Girl!
Sigh! First I have to lose a little weight (not as much as this lovely model, though, please!) and save a little money to look like this on the outside!
I can play the piano, though! =]
~I think that plaid and sweaters, florals, dresses and petticoats are a state of mind, anyway!~
I want to look like a Cabbages and Roses girl on the outside because I already am inwardly.
If you want to see more from the link that I was emailed - have fun!
