por milenios y milenios

tu mordiste la manzana y renunciaste
al paraiso y condenaste a una serpiente
siendo tu el que asi lo quiso
por milenios y milenios permaneciste
desnudo y te enfrentaste a dinosaurios
bajo un techo y sin escudo
y ahora estas aqui queriendo ser feliz
cuando no te importo un pepino tu destino
-Pies Descalzos,Suenos Blancos, Shakira

I love your outfit immensely! the whole cow girl vibe is so great, and I really like the ribbon.
When I look through my grandma's old photos, I always admire the style. Ladies back then had great style!

I'm obsessed with old photographs. There's a guy at Spittalfields market who sells hundreds of them from battered leather suitcases and it's like heaven going through them all..

Thanks for this entry, it's wonderfully put together and has something of a real vintage and nostalgic feel to it.

Alice said...

And I adore your floral dress! So vintage and yet so soft and summery at the same time.

Hey,

I absolutely love your blog. Your style of writing and use of creativity makes your blog a must-read for me! I especially like the personal touches you had to your posts.

My name is Audrey Leighton Rogers, I am style editor for the Durham University newspaper and was wondering if you could take a look at my blog-
frassy-audrey.blogspot.com and let me know what you think?

It would be great if we could exchange links and could feature each other on our blogs? I am looking to improve my readership and I’m sure you wouldn’t mind an increase in readers either!

Anyway keep up the amazing work, and get back to me when you can!

Thanks,

Audrey Leighton Rogers
