This outfit makes me think of that old saying, "every cloud has a silver lining." I remember first hearing it in some cheesy pre-teen book. At the time I never thought much about what it meant, or if it had any meaning at all, but now I think it's a saying that we should all apply to our lives. Life never goes as planned, and there will always be moments that stop us in our tracks, but we cannot lose the hope that there is something better not far along. Even during the most stormiest of days, there should still be hope that a ray of light will peak out.
Therefore, this dress with all it's frills, and my silver vest and socks make me feel like I'm a cloud, drifting along peacefully.
(When I was little I used to dream about being able to sit on a cloud and read books. I still think that if it was possible to do that, it would be really incredible. But unfortunately science puts a stopper to that dream.)
