|A big field of corn, full in bloom.|
|Me as a cherry girl in the middle of a jungle of plants.|
|Wearing a big cheeky bow. It can't be big enough!|
|Guessing what Dorothy would say about this outfit.|
|Ripe Cherries crowing my head, ready to be picked.|
|A swirling vintage skirt, made for dancing.|
|Who will lead me to the dance floor in my magical red shoes?|
|I am ready to clap my shoes and explore the wonderland of Oz.|
Is fashion something shallow? Do you loose sight of the truly important questions in life if you occupy your mind too much with how to dress? A lot of people would agree, but I am convinced by the opposite: My wardrobe is a place full of tales about love, joy, tears and unexpected happenings, just as my bookshelf. The difference is, that clothes don't tell stories about Mr. Darcey, Romeo and Juliet or Gulliver. They remind me of what I experienced while wearing them.
There is the dress I wore when I met my one true love, very close to my grandmother's ear muffs and the shirt from last christmas party with my all my beloved. My clothes are as well souvenirs from all the places I visited. They keep a little bit of the spirit of countries form all over the world in my closet.
My outfit today just arrived in my life and it still needs to find it's story. But it's not blank as a white sheet, even now it knows a lot about overcoming temptation as well as about taking the bait:
I was in love with this vintage dress, when I spotted it in the webshop of Dotti's, but tried to resist until someone else snatched it away. Later I figured out, the one who ordered it was not another girl, eager to wear it for a glittering summer, party but my darling. He couldn't resist to buy it for me and made my eyes sparkle when I opened the box.
With the shoes it's a similar story: It's no secret that I am absolutely crazy about Melissa shoes. I am addicted to their distinctive bubblegum scent and the shiny jelly material. I am always waiting for their new collections like a little child is waiting for Santa Claus. This ones have been among my favorites of the recent summer collection but I've just seen them once in a shop in London and already had a bunch of shopping bags on my arm. I was browsing through a lot of online shops for them afterwards without success. A few weeks ago, I got a lovely voucher from Mirapodo and had a look at their good choice of products. That was when I found the magical red shoes again, on sale and available in my size. No need to guess that I took the bait.
This shoes and the beautiful dress must be destined to carry me into a story like Dorothy's adventures in Oz, don't you think so? I wish all my readers the experience of beautiful stories as well!
