Looks, TheGirlAtFirstAvenue


April 4, 2012
“At some point you realize that there are more flavors of pain than coffee. There’s the little empty pain of leaving something behind ‒ graduating, taking the next step forward, walking out of something familiar and safe into the unknown. There’s the big, whirling pain of life upending all of your plans and expectations. There’s the sharp little pains of failure, and the more obscure aches of successes that didn’t give you what you thought they would. There are the vicious, stabbing pains of hopes being torn up. The sweet little pains of finding others, giving them your love, and taking joy in their life as they grow and learn. There’s the steady pain of empathy that you shrug off so you can stand beside a wounded friend and help them bear their burdens. 

And if you are very, very lucky, there are a few blazing hot little pains you feel when you realize that you are standing in a moment of utter perfection, an instant of triumph, or happiness, or mirth which at the same time cannot possibly last ‒ and yet will remain with you for life”

These words come closest to describing me and my entire life. I’ve always been in love with words, but these just took it to a whole other level.Onto the outfit now! I din’t expect my pink jeans to make their second appearance so soon!

a) Because they are pink jeans. I think I already gave a big explanation last time!
b) Because I don’t tend to repeat clothes very often. Typically if I’ve worn these pink jeans today, I would give it a gap of at least a month or two before wearing them again. That way I use all my other clothes!
In fact I thought they’d go into hibernation for a long while but here they are – another black, white and pink combo, just like last time.

    Hi!! This is such a nice post. I totally agree with you, so many different types of “pain” – on pain is the one of disappointment and another one regret, I think…

    But I really like what you've written, very poetic & true!

    Ohh and pastels pink pants! Pretty : )

    ooh, I love the jeans that you are wearing. I think it would go well with dark jeans also right? On that note have you heard of the new waterless campaign launched by Levis? This water
