Outfit

Today I wore my new dress from Dangerfield styled with navy blue and black shoes, belt and coat. I love this dress at the moment because the print is so unique and vintage inspired and like I said in my last post, it reminds me of something that would have been worn on the Brady Bunch. The next time I wear this dress I will probably style it with red accessories. It is amazing the impact that dressing up and wearing makeup has on me. It instantly brightens my mood and makes me feel happier for the rest of the day. I wish fashion could be incorporated into my life more and it could be my job. I think this all the time especially when I am writing boring law assessments. At least I am probably going to make another skirt this week which makes me more involved with fashion.

I'm making a few changes to the layout of my blog at the moment, just by creating some links at the top and making the sidebar more neat. I really appreciate blogging at the moment. My personal life is very stressful and complex right now where I am continually placed in difficult situations with many decisions to make. I have my own issues to deal with that I have mentioned on my blog for the past year as well as the pressures of other people's problems which I am becoming increasingly more involved in. I am caught in the middle of so many situations where my values and principles are constantly being challenged. The demands on my time are great right now and I wish I could be there more for those I care about. I would do anything to be able to be in two places at once. It feels as though there is no longer stability and certainty in my life, the way there once was. I wish I could be the person certain people want me to be. I wish I could be the person I want myself to be. I am going to write more about this when I am ready. Right now it may not make much sense. The point I am making here is that blogging provides such a wonderful escape for me since it focuses on my interest of fashion that I love so much. I like how the blogging world is always stable no matter what may happen in my life. Your comments mean so much to me.

Lovely dress.
It's such hard work to redesign a blog. It took me an entire day to revamp mine a while ago.
I love the blogging community. I am so thankful for all of my followers. They are closer to me than most people in my real life. They are always there for me, and they are some of the nicest people I have ever (virtually) met.

This dress looks incredibly beautiful on you. I agree, it is very retro and looks like Marcia Brady could have worn it! ;)

"I like how the blogging world is always stable no matter what may happen in my life."

This line really means a lot to me because I feel the same exact way! It's such a comfort to have our little blogging community, isn't it? I feel lucky to have such good friends like you who will never leave my side. We will always be there for eachother through our blogs, no matter where we are...

Aww Imogen, I'm glad blogging and our little comments can operate as a decompressor for you. Unfortunately, life only gets harder so little things like blogging and watching tv and laughing with friends become so important. I hope you're doing well. And of course, I bet you're looking as gorgeous as you do in these photos. Your outfits are always so immaculate.

It sounds like you're having a hard time right now and I'm sorry for that. It really stinks to be placed in the middle of situations. Especially if it's family matters.

On the plus side, your outfit is divine! I love the shoes especially:)
