Strangers


Dress: Gift from Big Sis
Lace blouse: Ross
Belt: Local
Cameo Ring: New Orleans
Freshwater Pearl Earrings: Dallas
Petticoat: Self Made

I wore this to church, then out to eat, a little bit of shopping, and to the movie theatre.  EVERYWHERE I received compliments from strangers.  Well, I did know the people at church. :o)

Anyways, you know an outfit is good when someone stoppes you on the street.  They don't know you, they don't HAVE to speak to you.  For this reason, if I see someone and think, "Wow, I like her hair," or "What pretty nail polish, or "That person has such a nice smile,"  I make the effort to tell them so.  I once followed a woman around the grocery store so I could "bump into her" and tell her how pretty her smile was.  I made her so happy.  If I were a betting man (as the saying goes), I'd bet she smiled a whole lot more that day. :o)

So, Thank you Big Sis for the beautiful dress!!!

PS:  I woke up the ants living in that stump!  That's what I'm pointing at.

  1. Can't see the ants but I am sure they too, smiled at you. Love the dress and how clever to layer with a lace blouse. It looks so chic, no wonder you got so many compliments JJ. Any chance of borrowing your sister sweetie ;-)

  8. You are totally right! I met someone once who complimented me randomly, and she went on to explain that she feels like people focus on negative thoughts too much and tend not to voice positive ones, so she tries to do so when she has them - I've tried to take on this mindset, we need more positivity in this world! Anyway, I agree with the strangers, the outfit is beautiful :)

  9. It is a stunning dress and I love the lace top over it! My daughter goes to school where I teach and many of the teachers and aides have told me how she is so sweet and gives them a sincere compliment each day. I told her about it and she said "I do it because everybody should feel good about themselves, so I find one thing I really like and tell them so they feel good." How sweet is that?
