Click a picture-@Talbots & #Nu by #Neo, the perfect two:)
Everybody has in their closet perhaps a special something, the memory of which when brought to mind can not only bring instant joy but also fill our hearts with hope and happiness and prospects for an illuminating future! For what better purpose is memory suited than to bring to recollection all the good and lovely things that have transpired in our lives! Here I would consider it a good habit snapping pictures of all the joy-filled moments that enrich our lives and once in a while to go through those pictures and offer a genuine gratitude to the Universe for such fulfillment that has been ours. This is especially a good idea on days when you feel perhaps less motivated to drive yourself around or when you succumb to a varying degree of boredom or sink into an almost lifeless state of delusive existence. To save oneself from this state of consciousness may certainly be if not wholly conscious, the underlying desire of every human-being that drives every other desire.
This has been my state of consciousness today but once I recognized it, I was quickly able to get out of it-surprisingly a lady like myself who loves clothes, does not need much to change or alleviate her mood! I started going through pictures of some of the very wonderful moments in my life and all the while practicing gratitude, I came across this picture that I took more than a month ago. It's one of my favorite fun dresses from Talbots that I picked up on sale almost two years ago. It revived the happy memory of that special Saturday afternoon I spent with my friend Maria visiting the Talbots store in Pasadena, L.A. (CA, U.S.A), who insisted I get this dress. It's 100% cotton, completely lined and I could even take it through some of the fall days with a nice matching front-open cardigan. Talbots usually has a great collection of fit and flare dresses for every season especially suited to the needs of those who are more curvy!
Then as Universe would have it, another friend gifted me a pair of these beautiful black NÜ shoes-almost supernatural in both beauty and comfort, I love them forever and also the friend who gifted them to me! They were rather expensive and she bought them for herself on a holiday abroad, but when she came back, she realized they were not her size and offered them to me-I couldn't have been less accommodating in this kind of an offer and graciously accepted them-till today they are one of my best pairs!
