Gotta start with the affected glamor shots. I couldn't resist including them. (Please pretend you don't notice my atrociously wrinkled blue skirt. Shhh, it's our secret.)
Isn't it funny how a little thing can shape your whole day? Sometimes unpleasantly, like when you have to unfriend someone on Facebook for making an offensive joke. But sometimes you wear a vintage lace collar that your mother gave you months ago, and it makes everything feel special.
I've also recently gotten back into the habit of wearing perfume every day, which increases regular specialness, if you'll excuse the oxymoron. My go-to at the moment is Benefit's "Laugh With Me Lee Lee"--a gift from my sister a birthday or two ago--but I also have a dwindling sample of Valentino's "Valentina" that is perfectly lovely and I'll be sad to be without. I hope my mom picks up another one from wherever she got it.
