A work of art

My sister Izzy is in town visiting and that got me thinking about family.  The layers of history, the kind of intimacy that only comes from knowing someone since childhood mixed with the surprises of finding out who they’ve become as an adult.  If you’re as lucky as me and are still close to your siblings, then you know what I mean when I say that this relationship is a work of art.  A painting on a reused canvas.  A tapestry. A photograph capturing a moment in time that is different every time you look at it because you’re different, changing and growing.  So I had this in mind when getting dressed today and nothing was better for capturing my feelings than this slim fit, pink and blue confection of a dress.  The pastel palette of colors keeps it light and airy, the cut is elegant and professional, but the design reminds me of a Monet water lily or a van Gogh starscape.  It’s abstract and leaves a lot open to the imagination.  Pair with light colored, complimentary heels and a sturdy, industrious satchel in delicious mint.  Who knows what the day might hold and what it will mean!
