To express oneself completely..

I've been thinking a lot about ways to express myself completely through one medium. I express myself through so many mediums though, that this one task seems difficult. I think taking photos and making up outfits every day is among one of the most important ways I can and will ever express myself. Two people in the costume shop told me today that I basically never wear the same outfit and it really has been dawning on me that it's close to true. But where's the fun in wearing the same outfit even twice unless if it makes you feel like a million bucks? This I ask you.

I found this vintage 1950's dress at a yard sale marked down because it has some pink stains. I am going to try to get them out with Palmolive. My friend who owns Figmint Vintage says she soaks her clothing in a bathtub with Palmolive and it works wonders! I'll let you know how it goes! :D

That dress is beyond gorgeous and I am so jealous of your balloon. I have been wanting to take pictures with balloons but don't have any place near me that will sell them and the lack of funds. :) Love you, Polly.

you look absolutely gorgeous. and i love that lip color, it really makes the look. i think for me it's impossible to limit myself to one medium, but if we don't have to- why should we?
