an element of gray

"Day after day, I'm more confused
Alice + Olvia Fall RTW 2011
Aigner Fall RTW 2011

Yet I look for the light through the pourin' rain        

You know that's a gam
that I hate to lose

Aigner Fall RTW 2011
Alvireo Martini Fall RTW 2011

And I'm feelin' the strain
Ain't it a shame 

Alvireo Martini Fall RTW 2011

Oh, give me the beat boys
and free my soul

Alvireo Martini Fall RTW 2011
I wanna get lost
in your rock n roll
And drift away... 

Alvireo Martini Fall RTW 2011
Beginnin' to think that I'm wastin' time
I don't understand the things I do
The world outside looks so unkind
My guy not looking at the camera.
Now I'm countin' on you
To carry me through...
My guy in a collage of gray.

And when my mind is free
You know a melody can move me
My twin nieces wearing gray dresses.
And when I'm feelin' blue
The guitar's comin' through
To soothe me
Thanks for the joy that you've given me
My nephew wearing gray.

I want you to know I believe in your song

And rhythm and rhyme and harmony

Looks like my nephew spilled his drink,
 all over his shirt.
I do that all the time too.

You help me along
Makin' me strong...

Little me on my 1 yr old birthday.
I'm with my mom, &
 the teddy bear cake she made me.
It wasn't originally black & white,
 but I altered it to fit the theme of this post.

Hey, hey, hey, yeah
Give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock n roll
And drift away"...-

  10. Aww, that old photo is too adorable! I love looking at old photos like that - they are so inspirational!

  11. I used to find gray rather gloomy, but I actually just bought two gray tops and I adore them. One has a bear on it, and the other has sheep. Not so gloomy, eh? I adore that Aigner dress with the black bow. It's PRECIOUS.


  12. Great post!

  13. great combination of lyrics and pictures... happy new year Teddi..

  14. Lovely post! Gorgeous grey finds!


  15. Love that song! I also love how your blog has so many pictures!

  16. Great song and great post! Loving all the looks - gray is perfect for winter. I love the knee length flare skirt especially.

    About my post title, you're not missing anything! lol. I literally just pick my favorite verse from the song I'm listening to at the time of making my post. It usually has some kind of personal significance at the time but rarely has anything to do with the actual post at all.

  17. Carl is a good person, it's just a complicated situation. Thank you for commenting :*

  18. cute!!! i've always loved that dress in the first picture.. i've seen it a couple of times ;) also, that combination from the Alvireo Martini Fall RTW 2011: GORGEOUS!!!!

    that's a really beautiful picture from you and your mommy<3


  19. awesome song!
    the first 2 photos are amazing.. greaty choice of outftis!
    ..about my "short hair" illustration.. my hair used to be super short, I chopped it and had like that for over a year, now I'm letting it grow but it still is short... all my guy-friends hated it, that's why I thought it to be a man repeller... except my ex, he loved it.. so now I want it long, the way he wouldn't want it to be haha..

  20. Teddi Hello! I hope all is well out there! I loved these collections, I am in love with a gray, a gray skirt I have and not wait to use it ... have not used ..= /
    I loved everything, and thanks again for the comments ... followers of Teddi! \ o /
    heheheh ... until tomorrow dear!

  21. Dearest Teddi,
    I`m wishing you a PHENOMENAL NEW YEAR and hoping that all of your dreams come true in 2012! Love D. xoxo

    PS. I need a wardrobe overhaul! ;)

  22. very nice blog! i think that maybe we can follow each other (fb, blogger...) come to see my blog and tell me =)

  23. Beautiful combination of personal and fashion <3

  24. Heya! Actually the whole dress is attached- the bottom part and the lace part came together. It would be really handy to find "slip" dresses to put under things that are really sheer.. I'm not sure where to find one that would work. Maybe H&M or Forever 21?? Sheer clothes are a tricky thing- I know what you mean!

  25. Your nieces and nephew are sooooo cute!
    The outfits you chose are so gorgeus, I can't decide myself for one, but I'm certainly inspired! Will try to find some similar things in my closet, soon I'll be in the UK! :)

  26. Haha, yes, Carolina in my mind. Just a palm springsy play on words. :)

  27. I love what i see here!

  28. You combine fashion and rock n' roll so well! I admire that! :)
