Nelson, Mom Jeans And The Dog House

"We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child Of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you." Marianne Williamson, as quoted by Nelson Mandella in his inaugural speech, 1994

That's my story and I'm stickin with it. And, so should you...

Kindness of Babe for realizing that being "gorgeous" and "fabulous" does indeed require buying Varinas in many colors. Even though it may not have been so "brilliant" to do so without his blessing. Or "talented" to get caught...XXOO

  1. C'mon, Mr. SummerIsAVerb aka Babe...the Varinas are a wardrobe STAPLE and you can't have Alice running around DC without the appropriate footwear! (Now if only I had jumped on a pair of those 8.5s more quickly, darnit!)

  6. I feel like this is all my fault. Well, maybe the MoS girls more so, but none the less.

  7. Anything worth buying is worth buying in multiple colors. That's my credo and I'm sticking to it

  8. Those are terrific photos!

    Ferragamo must be thrilled that their shoes have caught on with cute young women.

  11. Such a perfect blend of words and pictures Miss Allie, I love it. And also ascribe to the same theory, once finding *the perfect thing* it really is more economical to purchase in multiples. Honest.

    Hugs to you, happy you feel better,
