Two Stylish Kays: So Blue, So True

So Blue, So True

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

Dress- Bill Blass (Thrifted)/ Belt- Gifted/ Shoes- Jessica Simpson/ Necklace- Forever21/ Earrings- Thrifted










***UPDATED 07/21/2011****
This is one of my favorite thrifted pieces! I got this from the Goodwill in Dunwoody, GA. Be sure to head over to Everybody Everywear to see everyone's favorite thrifted finds.

There is something so liberating about living in truth.  Living in truth is about being your authentic self despite perceptions and expectations of others.  The only way to live such a life is to truly understand who we are first. 

Reflect on this:
  • Who am I?
  • What brings joy to my life?
  • What do I contribute of value to the lives of others? 
  • What do I represent both in the presence of others and alone when no one is watching? 
Own your existence with the understanding that we get another chance each second to  reintroduce ourselves to the world in a spirit of truth.
