sometimes, this beach girl has a huge,
uncontrollable pull towards tulle.
it's sort of a fantasy thing, i guess.

i can't explain it,
it may not make sense,
a girl who wears flip flops
and spends most days at the beach,

but, the pull has always been there
and resurfaces at the oddest moments.
like now, when i am totally immersed in
a retro-california, bohemian coastal lifestyle
and then i stumble upon a photo of a tulle skirt
and in a head spin,
i'm off dreaming about the perfect date night.

i especially like the stripes
as it adds a bit of edge
and clicks with my idea
of perfection.

fashion submerged in contradiction.

i might add a beat-up pair
of chuck taylors in black.
i personally think beat-up converse
add the perfect touch to most outfits.

in my dream,
i'd jump on the back of a vintage vespa,
arms around my sweetie's waist,
and head to little italy
for a dish of chocolate orange gelato
and a stroll
hand in hand.
