Fiore shoes / local shop bought skirt, shirt and necklace
The #beauty of relationships and #friendships is that they make us aware of who we really are. Every encounter we have with another person makes us aware of who we are at our root. Are we caring or self-centered? Are we easily manipulated or are we ourselves manipulative? Do we seek to understand or seek to control? Are we #dominant or submissive? Are we more inclined to the positive or to the negative? Are we supportive or are we competitive?
The more we know and accept our true self, the more we feel in power and in control of ourselves. The more control we have of ourselves, the less control someone else can have of us.
I kept losing control of the positioning of this skirt throughout the course of the day. The silky satiny fabric of the skirt gave it a power over the overall look. One minute I find the zipper sitting at the back and the next it was in front, but I really needed it to remain at the side so that the slits at the back would be well positioned. So, I took charge and pinned it to my satiny slip. Challenge overcomed.
Notice the pearl studded sleeves of the shirt? I really love that detail.
