i "borrowed" this awesome cocoon cardi from my mom last time i went to her house... love you mom!!!

anyhow... this morning i was having a conversation and one of the most profound things that i've said came out of my mouth.... and i wasn't even really thinking (ok, that sounds horrible)... back to the point... i said, "the way someone treats you when they are mad at you really says a lot about who they are". just think that one over for a second...

yea, ,makes you remember a lot, huh?

the best movies of last week are....
darjeeling limited- sooooooooooooooo freakN hilarious, LOVED IT! and natalie portman has a small, but very interesting part
and
inside man- story telling at it's best and clive owen is in it. love his voice. both MUST sees!!!!

i felt like a boho superhero in this get up... make what you will of that.... needless to say i did a lot of arm flapping... weird.

vintage cardi-moms closet, vintage slip, old levi cutoffs, chloe docs-last seen here, aa bra, vintage necklace-ax&apple

These are some of my fav pics of you ever Sabella!

That's saying a lot because you always have such great photos.

AND...you are completely right. Sometimes it should be looked at as a definite red flag!

gosh you are so beautiful and INTERESTING. And your photos are always so amazing. I love this outfit on you. It's so very YOU! And yes, loved darlejeeng...oh not spelled right...

And your profound quote, INDEED! That just makes me all the happier about my marriage...because it is true. Well, he's nice to me! I'm sort of a b___tch when I'm angry...though I do try really really hard to be nice... ;-)

hi sabella!, sabella!- :)

hope you're having a wonderful w/end, sweetheart; and though i always/ever look forward to your new posts, am glad to still see this one here. :)

as initially, the "dynamic & fierce" overall energy was somewhat overpowering, overwhelming! leaving one practically at a loss for (adequately, do justice) words, ya know!? :)

well, upon a lil' time of reflection, meditation, allow me to attempt some kinda justice to this most awesome pictorial. hopefully, my storytelling might rival "inside man," somewhat. ;)

goin' with the "boho superheroine" theme; your vampish, warrior-princess style outfit & hairstyle are definitely seriously striking, babe! :)

and then with the boldly graphic graffiti backdrop, an urban-jungle motif is essentially created, brought to life! :)

thus, stage set for "bodacious, beautiful bravegrrl" to arrive on scene to display her "magic & wondrous" superpowers! :)

sabella, i envision you here as somewhat a striking figurine cross of "crouching tiger, hidden dragon," & "the matrix." ;)

instead of the magical sword from the former, (alluding to past post of yours, goin' from "lil' grrl to woman...") your mama so graciously, lovingly, has bestowed upon you this centuries-old, coccoon cardi garment passed downed thru generations, which possesses mystical, magical qualities! :)

upon wrapping yourself in its bright & bold, red-black esoteric print pattern, deargrrl, alike a caterpillar tranforming into a beautiful butterfly; sweetheart, you "magically, mystically" become intrepid "bodaciously, beautiful bravegrrl" --- daring "boho superheroine/goddess" w/matrix-like abilities! :)

however, you ever pose your subjects, adversaries, with that fateful choice which you yourself unwaveringly, unequivocally, made:

"in the matrix, which pill would you take, the red or the blue?
the question of which pill to take illustrates the personal aspect of the decision to study philosophy. do you live on in ignorance (and potentially bliss) or do you lead what aristotle called 'the examined life'...?"

upon choosing (always, ever, choose love...!) wisely, one eventually, inevitably, comes to "enter a magical realm" where "true love, really reigns supreme!" --- allowing one's inherent strengths & powers to be so fully, magnificently manifested, realized...! :)

via & thru such "mystical, majestic, magical powers," our "boho superheroine/goddess" always, ever discovers... --- means to manifest by virtue of her "love supreme," some absolutely amazing way, yes, to wondrously, "gloriously save the day!!!" :)

and lastly, "bodacious, beautiful bravegrrl" always, always leaves some signature emblem on the scene upon "wielding her mighty magic!" --- a "lil' red heart," as evidenced on the ledge in that first photo above her hand. and sooo..., the storied-saga wondrously lives on ... ;)

namaste,
xoxo
