the blossoming night

Yes, yet another post about that Ballet. This time it's an outfit post of what I wore to the Concerts 4 Charity event that took place last Saturday. It's a bit springy- (oh yes, I am chomping for Fall clothes) but was perfect for the warm mid-September evening. 

Classic Citizen re-mix. You've seen the dress here. 
And the rosette headband and broach here

Now Wearing: 
  • Thrifted, 1950's pink/blue reversible satin silk jacket
  • Target, floral print cotton summer dress
  • Copious Couture, hand-made rosette head-band and broach
  • C&C, Porkchop Rules handmade zodiac ring
  • Thrifted, 1980's vintage gold lame shoulder bag
  • Target, gold leather goddess sandals

So I was going to hoot & holler that I am now one follower shy of hitting 150. But then, today, I lost a follower. I'm now back to 148, and I KNOW! I shouldn't let it bother me, but y'know? It does. There goes someone I disappointed, and I work very hard at making this a a good blog. But you do what do, and I do what I do. 

PS: 9 hours later: I lost another one! LOL. I'm now down to 147. Back to the drawing board. When I reach 150 followers, I'm going to have a happy give-away!

A big virtual hug and thanks to those who do follow this blog, and for all of you who email, comment and show your support. I really am grateful and feel honored that you read this thing. So until tomorrow: have a beautiful one!                                                  xo. -Bella Q

Wow another great inspiration. Love it all. Your mix and matches are out of this world and so much my cup of tea.
I wish we would live closer so we could meet sometime, and have coffee or tea or beer, but above all a good " chinwag".
About the followers, it happens to everybody. Some people follow you, and after a while the decide that the blog is not what they are looking for, so off they go to follow one of the many ones with the latest trend.
But they are no loss, because they cannot see what you really are about, and what make you unique.
Un abrazo fuerte.

Heather Fonseca said...

Like everyone else I love the combination of flower print and floral brocade. So much fun! And let me just say that my blog only has 11 followers on bloglovin - so I'd be very happy with 147!!!
