So on this day, which was a day that lived on the border between a California winter and a California spring day, was a rainy day, but that didn't stop our little Miss Ladybird! She opened up her closet and selected a w-o-n-d-e-r-f-u-l vintage satin rose-embossed shift dress and put it on. She paired it with a simple strand of pearlies, some delectable floral fishnets and a 1960's era wool cloche hat. She grabbed the nearest jet-black vintage parasol/umbrella to protect her lovliness in case of a downpour. And she went out for a walk.

The clouds, which up until this point had been rumbling overhead, and milling about like gloomy hooligans looking for lunch money, started to break up, and let some of the just-about-winter/almost spring sun come through and tip his hat to the lovely Miss Ladybird. The afternoon sky took on the hue of a blue watercolor. "Must be time for tea," she said as she made a bee-line towards her favorite tea-shop. "I'm feeling a bit for Ooolong."
Nothing beats the greys like a Little Black Dress.
