The Scene
After work, I ran around picking up supplies for my party on Saturday. I've always been that person that LIVES for my birthday. But not particularly excited about it this year. Though I AM extremely glad that 31 is finally almost over.

I've decided that it's been THE roughest year of my life. Feels like it's been one major blow after another: my mom's tumor then Mr. Diabolina's family tragedy then my recent health issues. Not to mention the pervasive professional malaise.

But even amongst some of the darkest hours of my life, there have been moments of shining brilliance. Like spreading my wings with the side business, making new friends through this blog, reconnecting with old ones through twists and turns of fate. Must remember, that even as darkness descends, I should appreciate the momentary flashes of light.

Like the gorgeous dusk sky tonight. Beautiful and haunting and fleeting...

The Outfit
Forever 21 top

The Grade

The Commentary

Another super girly look today

More ruffles

Loved how the fluttery skirt hem picks up the romantic feel of the ruffly top. Kinda like the butterfly in the print ;)

Heart how purple will seamlessly transition from spring to fall this year.

You know, since I'm a purple urple and all.

The beige and brown breaks up the purple nicely.

Though I'll risk being called Barney for these little amazing dresses.

And the new Marc perfume. Just 5 shopping days til this purple urple's birthday. Tick tock ;)

I also LIVE for birthdays! We're not too far apart in days so we have that in common. I'm sorry this year has been a bummer to say the least. Hopefully 31 will treat you better.
