things i'm loving
~serge gainsbourg
~sea horses
~the dress i'm wearing in this post

Photobucket
last friday i had a most fruitful trip to goodwill... i walked out with 3 dresses, a blouse, a vest and hat for $23 and change... that included this dress and hat... which are obviously favorites since i posted them first. the dress fits perfect. and makes me feel like a lady.. as opposed to the grrl that i really am... or maybe somewhere along the journey i have grown up and just haven't realized it yet...
i'm gonna try and post more links to where i find things... especially deals and great finds.... so if you are a ring person definitely check out the links below.... i found a great store on ebay.
i hope everyone is enjoying summer so far
♥♥♥

Such stunningly, sensationally lovely pics! "Wow!", extraordinarily exotically beautiful backdrops, particularly the one with lovely fuschia/pink flowers in background - - - and all these madly marvelous scenes/settings have you, Sabella, as an absolutely "breathtakingly beautiful jewel" as captivating centerpiece!!! :)

Believe & trust me in reaffirming that your amazing journey has wonderfully, indeed, most definitely rendered you a "lady of ladies" in your gorgeousness, refinement, & arresting beauty, Sweetheart! "Damn Girl/Lady!", you "So, So, Rock!" As these pics look as if they might be right from/of movie central/quality! For Real! :)

And to think you found such apparel treasures at such bargain prices - - - having you lookin' as arguably stunningly beautiful as ANY, YES ANY, moviestar/actress in any movie EVER made! What an absolutely amazing blog, Dear; and thanks for ongoingly bringing/sharing such "beauty in this world!" :) <333

Namaste,
XoXo
