Teal for two

 Teal Silk Ensemble

Teal Silk Ensemble

This is a beautiful teal cocktail dress with matching jacket.  What is delightful about this ensemble, is that it is surely something my grandmother had custom made in Hong Kong during her travels, but it is smaller than some others I have, which leads me to believe that some of these may have been made for her daughters.  Now as a mother of two daughters, I realize just how complicated it is to disperse things equally to avoid conflict.  Sadly, I believe my mother and her sister had real issues with competition, and that they struggled with that all their lives.  That is so heartbreaking to me, and so I try very hard to instill love between my two girls, and to make sure that they know that they are each others refuge not each others competitor.
