Dear Fashion Friend: 

I am posting this lovely photo from @aleyacollections today!

Isn't it exquisite? There are so many things I would love to say. A few words will suffice! When I saw the photo, I felt transported to the 1950s. I could picture her on stage at an NYC nightclub. She would be singing a favorite tune of the day! Her angelic voice would memorize the audience! Afterward, she would go from one table to the next inquiring patrons about where they are from and how to make their visit more enjoyable! Second, I was impressed with the lovely fabric pattern on a background of white! It reminds me of leaves on an early autumn day!  The makeup and accessories can be summed up in one word: Stunning!  And finally: Her eyes. Oh, those eyes! Full of meaning! Full of Love and Peace! I love it!!

I hope your visit to is a lovely one! xo
