-Laurie: I have loved you since the moment I clapped eyes on you. What could be more reasonable than to marry you?
-Jo March: We'd kill each other.
-Jo March: Neither of us can keep our temper...
-Laurie: I can, unless provoked.
-Jo March: We're both stupidly stubborn, especially you. We'd only quarrel!
-Laurie: I wouldn't!
-Jo March: You can't even propose without quarreling.
-Jo March: Well, of course Aunt March prefers Amy over me. Why shouldn't she? I'm ugly and awkward and I always say the wrong things. I fly around throwing away perfectly good marriage proposals. I love our home, but I'm just so fitful and I can't stand being here! I'm sorry, I'm sorry Marmee. There's just something really wrong with me. I want to change, but I - I can't. And I just know I'll never fit in anywhere...
I've always loved Little Women by Louisa May Alcott... there's something about Jo that not only I've always felt identified with, but also found mesmerizing about her... I can't imagine Louisa creating such a strong, vivid and remarkable character.
Last weekend, something happened that reminded me of this scene so much... when Laurie proposes to Jo and she refuses him; she breaks his heart and by that, her heart breaks too.
She would have loved to say "yes".. but she couldn't, Laurie is her best friend... she'd never try to hurt him, though she ends up doing it anyway... she's devastaded and for that decides to leave and start a new life some place else...
Maybe it's time for me to run away too...
-what have you got there?- a woman asked me on the street..
-a heart- I said -someone left it on my door this morning-

Nebula galaxy wedge heels... divine aren't they???
Wearing these must be like walking on the milky way, with a star lollipop on my hand... chasing commets and waving at space creatures as they pass by....

It seems that even in times when prints are being mixed with other prints; bright colors are paired with more bright colors on the same time and a diversity of textures is being added to outfits; the classic style still prevails and catches our eye.
An all white look is a spring-summer classic look; no wonder designers decided to keep it this season. It’s minimalistic, pure and refreshing; the all white outfits will prepare us for the warm days; dive in these garments and wear them in all sorts of occasions.
