Between the lines

Leave unsaid unspoken
Eyes wide shut unopened
You and me
Always between the lines
Between the lines.

I picked-up Sara Bareilles' semi-new CD at my very local library lately and have been enjoying her splashy songs. (Sara Bareilles graduated from UCLA, you know, and won the "Spring Sing" annual music competition there twice. In that case, of course, she's of interest!) I thought that the above verse is appropriate for Autumn's recent "lined" dressing.

Black and white is usually a keen combination for this sleek dresser that is my sister, and I particularly like this outfit of hers. Its empire (high) waist and short a-line skirt is cute, cute, cute--and what's that I see? A sweet bow ties around the middle.

I have to tell you: This dress came from that high-impact fashion shop with bargain prices, Forever 21, but Autumn did a lot to improve it. Looking at the dress on the hanger at the store, it didn't appear very wearable for most occasions, because it was a strapless deal. But, Autumn took the dress and paired it with the black short puffed-sleeved t-shirt--and voila! It is a summertime hit.

Between the lines. Sweetness and mystery--that's Autumn in this outfit.
