The Finer Things

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

Ah to live the life of luxury. Can you picture it? A dreamy Parisian abode, a wardrobe overflowing with couture gowns and gorgeous gems. Having nothing much to do other than keep track of a social calendar jammed packed with spectacular soirees. Sounds like my kinda life. In reality it's probably terribly boring and miserable. I'll keep my life but I'll can still daydream :)

Hope you all have a lovely day! xoxo

I love those black gems cascading down the back of the dress in picture #3. And the Eiffel tower is always gorgeous!

Very true! I feel like this sounds like a good time, for about 2 weeks or a month --top! Then I think one would have too much time to think......and find fault with things that are nonsense.

You know what? I think I could handle that kind of life, no problem. Somebody's gotta do it, I'll just go ahead and volunteer myself for all of us.

The sheer pleated dress is fabulous! But Diane looks fantastic in pretty much anything, she's a style icon of our times.

Can you imagine? I'm sure it would never get boring and miserable. It'd be just like regular life except fancier and better dressed. Also with no work to do. Ahhh, no work, yes, I think I could handle a life like that.
