“[Body Image Issues are] an intrinsic part of being a woman. Every woman in the world has some part of herself that she absolutely hates. Her hands are too small, her feet are too big, her hair’s too straight, too curly, her ears stick out, her butt’s too flat, her nose is too big, and you know, Nothing you [men] can say will change how we feel. What men don’t understand is, the right clothes, the right shoes, the right makeup just – It hides the flaws we think we have. They make us look beautiful to ourselves. That’s what makes us look beautiful to others.”  
―Martha Rogers, Castle season 1 episode 10


  1. well said! I love the red under all the neutral layers!

  2. I'm nervous to leave a comment as when I was attempting to yesterday is when everything went to heck for the both of us!

    But your skirt is SO lovely I had to say how much I love it. And what a wonderful quote from Castle.

    I loved yesterday's sweater with your Buttonflowers too. :)

  3. What a beautiful post and a lovely, lovely quote Megan! You are beautiful and very kind. Hope you always know that! Your blazer is great as well!

  4. Such a true statement. I love your outfit. That skirt amazes me everyone.

  5. What a nice quote! Really? From "Castle"?

    You look amazing in that jacket! I love how it swoops in and accentuates the full skirt. I know you're not a major jacket fan, but they'll suck you in! :)

    PS - it's Sheila. For some reason, I don't have permission to post under my Google account.

  6. "everytime"! Sometimes my mobile blogger won't let me fix my errors.:(

  7. I love the Anna Sui tights and I just ordered a pair from Sock Dreams. It's nice to see them styled in such a great outfit.

  8. @ Sheila - Thanks, I'm actually warming up to jackets quite a bit more, especially with the warm fall/mild winter we're having.

  9. That is a good quote. I have Castle on my list of shows to watch, but haven't gotten to it yet.

  10. That was a really good quote. It is so true.
    You look so good in this outfit. I just love that All Saints skirt. The jacket is a perfect fit on you.
    The vintage Mary Janes are awesome!

  11. Well said and so true :) Love the whole look today!

  12. Great quote! I love the unexpected pattern in the tights!


Thanks for reading. Got something to say? I'd love to hear it!
