BethanyD 's Thoughts:

“How did it happen that their lips came together? How does it happen that birds sing, that snow melts, that the rose unfolds, that the dawn whitens behind the stark shapes of trees on the quivering summit of the hill? A kiss, and all was said.” Victor Hugo

This top is new from Forever21 of course. I loooove the puffy shoulders sooo much! I was going to photograph it with jeans since it is pretty loud and colorful but at the last minute saw this poplum skirt in my closet that sort of almost matches. I love the color red, and as a natural redhead I can’t wear it very well. Thank heaven for my sister’s raven haired wig, now I can wear any color! I know with the shapes and patterns, this outfit is a bit over the top, but that’s what creativity and artistic expression are all about, right?

red hair isn't that bad... sometimes it's fun to have that clash so that it emphasizes the reds. great patterns on skirt and a nice cut on the vest.
