Strangers to Friends
How the Prettiest Dress this Summer Sparked Conversation
A few weeks ago, we strolled around town for some summer fun in Washington Square Park. We toured about, listening to the jazz band play and the birds chirp. The sun was shining, and strangers suddenly came flocking. Older ladies, and younger girls smiled, and stared, shouting, “You look beautiful, darling!” or “That dress is lovely on you!” I giggled, thanking them. I felt so proud of my most recent fashion find, and was even more delighted that I loved it just as much as they did!
Fashion is the wonderful art that you do for yourself, but evokes joy and admiration from others who see through to the real you that’s portrayed in your dress.
The best part of shopping is finding pieces that represent what you’re currently feeling, or who you see yourself to be (or hope to be). Like paint for a canvas, or decorations for a celebration look for pieces that match your lifestyle! And of course, there’s a time and place for t-shirts, but let’t be real – every girl needs a good dress for a bit of weekend excitement!
Not even the compliments, what I loved most about wearing my favorite summer dress was the girls who stopped and chatted with me about where I shop and how I find the cutest clothes. I was so delighted to meet the older, elegant ladies with their Chanel earrings (now considered Vintage Chanel earrings) and their polished marbled canes. Their 2-minute conversations with me were filled with memories of where they use to shop when they were my age, and wisdom about how fashion empowers young ladies like me to put my best foot forward. The younger girls, asked what we were doing that day and followed us to The Museum of Modern Art before they boarded a plane back to Switzerland. “Keep shining, my dear” they’d say as we parted ways. I felt so happy and grateful to meet a handful of others who appreciate the frill of life too!
My latest fascination has been with a little online shop, called, “Storets.” And you can find my dress HERE. There’s no wonder my latest little ruffle fun in the sun is a best seller! (The Cherry bag is no longer available there, but you can find it HERE for a bargain price). You can now also use the code “FINAL40” for 40% off all the summer styles! Enjoy what’s left of summer, and I hope that you too will make new friends with all your featured fashion favorites! *If you’re having a little trouble choosing clothing for your personality, visit my previous post HERE to get a few more pointers on how to shop for you!
