Start The Day As You Mean To Go On


I will admit that I have an over active imagination. And, I'm sure, I am not alone. I am 23 years old, and approximately half of those years have been dedicated to day dreaming. Wish features high in my mental and verbal vocabulary. Have you ever heard of 'Be careful what you wish for?'

I think, I am currently wishing my life away. Stupid wishes, like 'I wish, I didn't have to go to work today.' What would happen if that wish came true and I lost my job? This is what I call a hollow wish. Everyone has to work. I just need to get on with it! I may not like my job, but hey, good things come to those who wait, right?

So, as a belated new years resolution, there will be no more hollow wishes. Instead, the wishes I make from here on in will be of the positive sort. Since, I started this blog, I have come to realise that I love (and not just like...LOVE) to write. I would be happy to tap, tap, tap all day long about fashion. (This does not mean that I am any good at it, though! That, my friends, is up to you). Therefore, I am going to work my hardest and try to develop my fashion writing skills.

So, the first positive wish? To be a fashion writer. I think with a lot of hard work and creativity that wish will come true. My second positive (edging on the fanciful and more materialistic) wish? To wear some D&G, preferably a piece from the Spring/Summer 2011 collection. It would be a sin not to wish about D&G!

This collection is just beautiful. This is the second thing I love today. One more daydream and then I am done, ok? Here is my perfectly acceptable wishful day wearing D&G:


Morning: Start the day, as you mean to go on with this bright floral sundress. And why not top it all off with a gingham bandana, Carrie Bradshaw style.



Afternoon: Staying with the bandana and keeping cool ('cause I am living in NYC with this wish) in denim culottes, of course keeping a touch of floral with that bag and a touch of gingham with that top.


Night: It's Friday night, otherwise known as date night. Why not finish the day with a bang by going Boho with this beautiful floral maxi dress. Always keeping those wedge espadrilles on my feet. D&G, at its best!


I need to ensure that this D&G wish will become a reality. Off to work I go!

D&G Spring/ Summer: do you love, as much as I do? Oh, and please tell me that you do a lot of wishing, also.......

I hope your wish is realized!!

I'm loving your wishes, most especially the boho dress :) I can totally agree with you on day dreaming most of the time. But my dreams always revolve around the same two things: building a house of my own and owning my own business. I don't think i've dreamt of anything else as much as i do about these two

The colours of the dresses are just gorgeous- beautiful prints. Also love the commentary along with the dresses!

Jules said...

okay, i love that maxi dress! And the gingham top/wide legged trousers combi!

I've been dreaming my life away, and it's got me nowhere, too! Even though I love writing, I've noticed that I've been too lazy (i.e. my mum does everything) for me so now I've got to do housework. I've also started to take care of how i look etc (i.e. nail polish with no chips, etc); and even though I want to start my own business, I've put it off til 2012 because of the economic climate... ach, I fear the "boyfriend" resolution again...! :s
