Dress – Blue Pepper from Ruche  //  Necklace, Bracelet, and Earrings – Threadsence  //  Tights – F21  //  Boots – Feet First

 There’s something about the combination of brown and blue, especially a really rich tone, that feels just perfect for Fall.  It’s one of those palettes that has just been made for the season.  It’s almost become a cliche just because it looks so right, but hey, I’ve never been one to shy away from a good cliche. They become cliches for a reason.

And I’d rather listen to a good cliche any day over some of the dribble that I hear on a daily basis.  Like the teenage girls on the metro who were talking about not wanting to exercise to get thin because they don’t feel like it, so instead they take diet pills…along with all their other pills.  Sometimes I just want to shake young women, or sit in a corner and cry.  Do you realize what you’re putting into your body?  Do you realize what ideal you’re buying into?

I’ll take a good cliche any day.

 True Story:
Andrew is cooking and Drake the Dog is not more than two inches away from him at all times in the hopes that something will fall, or that he’ll get offered some treat.  Andrew offers him a piece of celery.  Drake takes it walks away and drops it on the floor in distaste.  Baby Girl, who just happens to be sitting right there, picks up the celery without missing a beat.  And pops it into her mouth saying, “Thank you Dwake!” Only time she’s ever eaten celery.
