"I live in a crazy time..."

"And finally I twist my heart round again, so that the bad is on the outside and the good is on the inside, and keep on trying to find a way of becoming what I would so like to be, and could be, if there weren't any other people living in the world."
Today is the birthday of the amazing Anne Frank (1929). I know that kind of makes her sound like a magician, but she really was a heroic young girl. I love her diary; it's such a powerful and heartfelt story. Hiding from Nazis in occupied Holland during WWII is just a dreadful experience I hope no one ever has to live through again. The weird thing to imagine is that if she were still alive, she would be 80 years old.

The 3.1 Phillip Lim collection is another favorite. It's perfect for the girl who has to work a summer job, but also for one who has plans for a stylish vacation. Between the lace and the jumpsuit, and the jacket, it's almost too perfect.

I can't believe I still haven't read her diary. I adored the play based off of it.

I love the dress in the 2nd picture and the shorts in that collection. It's so clean-looking, if you know what I mean.
