A La Leslie Hornby

Fashion: Leslie Horby is Twiggy's name. This dress gives me the pleasure of feeling like I'm vicariously living through Twiggy. I had fun twirling in both these pictures. Does it look like I'm twirling?
Dress: H&M, Shoes: Vintage via the Vintage Collective, Clip: Claire's


Philosophy:
Belle inspired me (when I read this post) to answer a question that I've honestly not given much thought to before. What is my definition of friendship?

Friendship to me is when you've made enough of a connection with another person, that they know every way to make you cry, yet they do everything to try to make you smile. The end.

What's your definition of friendship?
I'm looking forward to hearing it!
Have an amazing day.

Love,
Morena

That dress is lovely on you, you wear it very well!
Thanks for stealing my twirl :p

I like the colors, very nice. You should get an authentic 60's dress, vintage is your friend, like your shoes :p

My definition of a friend, in short, is someone you can trust, an count on, with everything. Someone you can trust with with your secrets, someone you can trust will always have time for you, and if they dont, they will make the time if they have to. Someone you can trust to make you smile, or make you cry when appropriate. You have to trust them to try their best not to let you down, never stab you in tbe back and they always have trust to you to do the same for them

You look gorgeous in that lovely dress! A friend is someone that makes you feel that you are not alone in the world, the first one you think when very happy or extremly sad!:)

Piglet said...

Oh that dress is amazing! and I love the sunflower.

Cammila said...

You are so full of movement and life in this dress! And it's not just your adorable twirling, but the vivaciousness you bring to it. :)

Okay and now, in order to properly answer your question, I'll have to curse. I curse like a sailor in the right crowd, but I try to keep it down to a shout when I'm in mixed company -- or on other people's journals. But to me, the hardest thing in finding an intimate, truly comfortable connection with an IRL friend is my self-conscious need to fill in the gaps, keep people at ease, etc. Hence, I must quote Uma Thurmon's character Mia Wallace in Pulp Fiction:

"Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullshit in order to be comfortable?...That's when you know you've found somebody really special. When you can just shut the fuck up for a minute and comfortably share a silence."

Bucca said...

Cute dress! as for the friendship question - it's rather complicated in my eyes - I think friendship can be many things....

Melanie.Trini said...

LOVE the dress!! H&M is one of my top 5 FAVE stores!

Stevie Anne said...

Incredible dress i adore the bright colors

My definition of a friend is someone who is dependable, easy to talk to, a good listener and someone who understands you and your values. Now a best friend defanitly has higher standards haha but that is a different story.

love your posts, soo great!
xoxo Stevie

It doesn't look like you are twirling, but I love how it makes that dress flow.
Friendship, to me, is being able to express all of your emotions to someone who understands and appreciates them.

I love this dress. It makes me feel so happy and warm inside. I just bought a dress off ebay that is the same pink colour although I probably won't be able to wear it until summer. Morena, I love your definition of friendship because it is so meaningful and seems to capture its true value. It makes me realise how much I have enjoyed getting to know you this year.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

That is one of the prettiest dresses I have ever seen. And you look gorgeous in it. It fits your style perfectly. It is so YOU, I can't even imagine it on Twiggy!

That dress looks totally gorgeous on you. You wear it so well!

About friendship, I understood its true meaning a lot more since I moved abroad two years ago. Being so far from home can be difficult at times but there are a few of my friend that are supporting me despite the fact I'm 3000 miles away. When I feel down, when I feel happy or any other time, I know I can count on them. And they know they can count on me. We don't even have to ask, we just know. That, to me, is friendship.

The dress is so nice!

esther said...

ohmygosh your definition of friendship is perfect! i don't think i could come up with a better one, so i'll just make sort of an addition:

friendship is being able to be completely yourself around each other and knowing that you will not be judged for your actions, but loved for them instead (quirks and all).

Oh and you look soooo cute!

KIRAFASHION said...

Hey, Morena! I heard about you on Girl's Life, and I want to say that I think it's great what you're doing and to keep on doing it. I also love that you are your own individual self. By the way, love the dress! It has some really big and bold colors.

Hey Morena,
How do you come up with all these poetic and intelligent things to say, like they came out of a book? I'm not even halfway there.

Morena said...

Anonymous 1: Thanks for your comment. I always love hearing from the girls who read that article on Girl's Life. Please keep stopping by. :)

And to Anonymous 2: Well that's a very nice compliment thank you. I don't really "come up" with them, I just write down what I'm feeling and sometimes it's hard to express in words, but I do my best.

Ruta said...

friendship to me is when you can be truly honest and completely yourself with someone else. it's being able to let go of all doubts and uncertainties and just allowing yourself to be you.

lovely photo.
