Lonesome Sundown

From time to time, I wonder if phones/ the internet isolate us more than they bring us together. A convincing case can be made for both sides but I really don't have a strong opinion on the topic. All I know is that it's trippy to think we can feel so lonely when as we're holding a smartphone that grants you access to interact with thousands of different people in the world. I guess it's just like feeling deserted in a crowded, virtual room. Sunsets seem to exagerate loneliness in those moments for me like "Noooo the day's ending just like my chance to feel close to anyone ever agaaaaain!!!1!" Today isn't one of those days, as I'm snapping away photos of sunsets that look identical to the ones I took from yesterday and the day before that. The wind blows my hair all over my face, strands of it sticking to my orange coated lips. I like how the kimono glows in the warm, firey light of the setting sun. Looking down at my outfit, I realize that even though I've been waiting all year to wear autumn clothes, my outfit still screams summer (with the exception of my roper boots of course). All this is happening as I'm alone, and I couldn't feel farther from lonely.

Howling at Nothing

Lacy trapeze tank dresses seem to be the dress of choice for many ladies lately. At nearly every crowded public place I go to, I'm bound to see at least one girl sporting this type of flowy and feminine dress. This trend is one in which I can't help but jump on the bandwagon. The little trims of lace and ruffled hem add just the right amount of sweetness to the dress. Sure, it's on the summery side, but this tank dress can join a fall ensemble under a warm sweater or a crochet vest (Like the one I have if you're stuck in a hot October like me).Wholesale Buying made my miserably hot day worlds better by sending me this bright red dress with itty bitty polka dots. The bottom half reminds me of a cute lil' square dancing dress so I'm embracing the western flair with a pair of cowboy boots. I promise though, I'm not heading over to a hoedown or anything. You can tell by my jewelry, along with pretty much everything else about me, that my "country roots" don't go farther than a pair of cowboy boots.

Also, mini announcement: In case you guys didn't know, I'm now writing articles for an entertainment blog called PPcorn. Click here to check out my first article on the most stylish, fictional fashionistas of the 90s.
