I'm behind with my day, but I wanted to share this outfit, since it's kind of a celebration of an anniversary of sorts. Some of you will remember I had a bad experience a few years back, and I always take time to be grateful for life and limb when the day comes back around. It is no longer a sad day for me, thankfully, in part thanks to the love and support from this forum. XOXO, big time!

This is stylish and sassy! Love the distressed shorts on you Rae. Thanks for checking in with us, it's always great to hear from you. And yes, I remember this day two years ago all too well, I was in LA visiting when it happened. I am glad to see how you've come out of this a survivor not a victim.

I'm glad to hear you're in a better space these days. Your outfit is fab. I want that yellow bag! Do you still live in LA? Too cold for me for shorts so just wondering if you're somewhere warm.

Una, good eye! Navy paper leather scuba off Ebay. Huge love. Great weight for here!
Elle, I am still in LA county, but we moved to Torrance. I think it's been similar weather to the westside, though it has been up and down in temps for sure.
Harmonica, it has been a process for sure, and I still get help from my therapist and meds... If you are like me, you take inspiration where you can find it. :) Best to you in the new year. XO

Love the look -- very LA with almost a "vintage LA" backdrop. Seriously, your setting looks like something out of a vintage sit com set in LA. I love the saucy cap and luxe booties and jacket!
You are more than a survivor. You are a "thriver," Rae --- a wise woman who keeps her support system close and her feet moving forward. May this year be full of joy!

I'm just your average working stiff who loves nice things and hates to pay for them. This blog outlines my efforts to navigate that treacherous shopping/saving divide through swappin', thriftin', and even a little resellin'. Many of the pieces in my wardrobe cost me just $1! We've heard a lot about people "living above their means" in recent years; I'm championing the concept of living large *below* your means - whatever that means for you. :)
