Nothing Gold Can Stay - Robert Frost
Nature's first green is gold
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
|My dear Inigo|
Today was the worst day I've had in a long time...
I really needed to "fake it till you feel it" today, so I wore my deep gold blouse.
I liked the longer length. I recall this length (only much baggier) being very trendy in 1985-86, only I didn't buy new - I raided Dad's closet for his shirts.
I've had this skirt for a couple of years (last worn here back in July!). I love that it has so much embroidery on it, and the metal discs give it a nice edge. The pattern also goes all the way around the skirt - that's one of my beefs with things that are decorated on the front: why not do the back too?
My yellow Tsubos get another wear (last time here):
I wore my Grandma J's 70s/80s Anne Klein necklace.
Blouse (Simon Chang), skirt (Bianca Nygard), shoes (Tsubos), necklace (Grandma J, vintage 70s or 80s, Anne Klein), earrings (Aldo Accessories).
We had a little time after work with Inigo. He climbed up on the dresser to look out the window.
You were gold, my sweet boy.
Thank you everyone for your comments. I've read every one, and it's really hard to keep it together (I'm crying as I write this), so forgive me for not responding to you individually. It means a lot to know everyone loved him, and to know that you'll all be giving your own fuzzy loved ones an extra snuggle for him tonight. For those of you who have lost your own furry companions, we bow our heads in memory.
Vizzini is sleeping on me as I write. We will be sure to give him lots of love and attention, and I'm sure he'll be photobombing me again soon.
