"dancers are the atheletes of God" - Einstein

Though I believe that second-hand stores are the best places to find a good deal, I never rule anything out while bargain hunting. Take this outfit, for instance, the whole thing cost less than $25, and all, save the purse and necklace which were hand-me-downs, came from contemporary clothing stores.

I ventured down to a breathtakingly beautiful cemetery for these pictures. It was so peaceful and serene. I think cemeteries are such great places for creative minds to work - they spark the imagination and cater to the senses.

When I got dressed I thought the outfit needed an extra something...a little oomph. I think these socks (on clearance from Target) are the perfect touch.

This photo shows the pretty draping effects of this top. It's lovely muted pink color paired with the unusual cut are what attracted me to it on the sale rack. I feel like an off duty ballerina in it, which I think is what prompted me to do a top knot and use the dainty accessories.
