Picture of Success

I've been feeling strange lately. Like success is fleeting and I want to be succeeding in life and my career but I don't quite have the stamina or the want. I met with my director, Tim, last night to talk about the upcoming music video he is directing and I am costume designing.. we are working things out and getting back into the creative mode, so I believe I feel as if the ball is rolling now (since the last film we made- The Conversationalist) and it's a really good feeling to be back in the game. Can't wait to show you the process!! .
this was my breakfast yesterday before work at Dandelion Vintage. We did the displays AGAIN! I didn't even get to take a picture of the second one I did! not to worry- I'll start bringing my camera to work more often, yes?
Outfit details:

Lovely outfit, as always. :)

I get what you mean when you talk about feeling like success is you want to savor it and hold on to it while you can.

Styling for a film would be such an incredible experience. I am anxious to see what you’re putting together! This outfit is darling. I can’t believe you found such a lovely blouse at Goodwill. I can never find cutesy blouses that fit there.
