In The Fashionista's Closet: Gumballs

 Gumballs is what my mom called this dress so this is what it is.

 Dress: Vintage
Belt: Came from another dress
Clutch: Gifted from sister
Shoes: Nine West

I love bright colors (as if you didn't already know) and I don't know if I'm in a good place because of the bright colors I'm wearing or if I'm gravitating to the bright colors because I'm in a good place but I'm taking everything in stride right about now.

Life happens, setbacks happen, people happen, but you just gotta keep it moving.

I have the love and support of my friends and family and that's what matters to me.

Great sentiment! And I agree. Life will never be perfect but it's how we roll with the punches that make it all worthwhile. Glad to see you having better days.
That dress was meant for you and your tiny waist! You look fantastic.
