Lust List: Ready for Fall

Oh, Autumn, how I’ve longed for thee. I’ve longed for autumn since 26th December in the same way I’ve longed for Christmas since 1st January.  Spring was lovely. Summer was strange. It’s August now. August is half way done and school is quickly approaching. I’m excited. I’m excited about leaves changing colors, October, bold statements, New York Fashion Week, crisp air, crunchy leaves, dressing up. Oh, I can’t forget Pumpkin Spiced Latte’s. My mouth waters just thinking about it. 

Just like every season, there are things that I am lusting after and things I will acquire. To me, the months between September and February are it. Apologies to the other months, but these are the months I am inspired most by fashion.

What is August?

What is August?

What is August?
Well-
On the surface, she’s warmth.
She’s amorous.

What is August?
August is a symphony of pages turning in an old, weathered book somewhere in the Parisian countryside.
She’s that one last hoorah.

What is August?
August: the smell of salt-water carried by a breeze
She’s the smell of burning firewood on a beach.

August starts off as a yellow sunflower that dances in the green of the land she was born.
She longs for September knowing she can’t delay.
She changes her stripes and leaves us with the burgundies and the browns.
August hums quiet promises of falling leaves.

August sees she’s the reason people crave October, but don’t fret.
She knows February justifies why she’s desired most.
She never truly says goodbye
Just au revoir.
See you later.

A dress is more than just a dress.

A dress is more than just a dress.

For days, I’ve ran many scenarios in my head. One scenario consists of me wearing a pretty little summer dress and frolicking through a field of sunflowers. The thought of the summer sun kissing my skin and making me glow as I enjoy mother nature makes me happy. Another scenario consists of me wearing a dress like the one I am now and having lunch in the countryside of France or Italy. I’m daydreaming, fantasizing, and romanticizing all at once. What’s new?

It’s been awhile since I wore something I really wanted to share or talk about. I bought this dress months ago. It was the middle of the night. I was thinking about my myself and how comfortable I’ve become. I love the way this dress looked on the model and thought I could pull it off. #Winning This lovely dress that I am wearing reminds me of how much I love flowers. I feel beautiful in it. It’s my “lunch in the countryside” dress.

To be very honest, I love everything about it. I love the cut of the dress. I love the way it hugs my body. I love the way it looks on my chest knowing I have small boobs. Whenever I wear a dress, I want to feel confident. I want to feel like I’m about to strut down a catwalk. Wearing this dress made me feel that. I strutted everywhere I went. I felt good in it. Women kept asking me where I got my dress from. I got to spread the word about one of my favorite online shops. That’s always a plus.

I’ve worn this dress on multiple occasions. I get the same feeling every time. Every woman needs that dress that makes her feel beautiful. The dress that speaks to her and says, “You’re ready for the runway. You’re ready to be feature on the cover.” A dress is more than just a dress. A dress is a statement. This is currently that dress for me.

Do you have that dress? What does it say to you? How does it make you feel?

All the love. xx
