I truly love this dress.  It is a vintage Halston made from Scottish cashmere. O.M.G.  what is not to love?!  This is one of the pieces that my mom gave to me years ago.  I have treasured it, often times wearing the cardigan on it's own with jeans.  For the first time in months (so sorry East Coast and Mid-West friends!) it was chilly enough to wear this ensemble.  My husband and I received a wonderful invitation to an intimate birthday celebration this past Saturday evening. The invite came from our neighbor, who has over the years become a dear and special friend, the celebration was for her amazing boyfriend, also in attendance were her fabulous Goddaughter and her amazing husband. We were so touched to be invited to such an intimate gathering.  One of the things that was so beautiful to see was the relationship between our friend and her Goddaughter, it felt so much like my relationship with my own dear godmother Frances, and to my own mother, it was so special, and I loved being in that circle of friends for the night, it was so comforting and healing.  Her goddaughter mentioned that she had been reading the blog and that she was now writing to her mom daily notes. I was so moved, I could not believe it!  At the risk of sounding corny, mom, I believe you are out there looking out for me, somehow orchestrating this circle of love and friendship that I feel so blessed to have.  Thank you. xoxo
