rising from the neon gloom

"Fly into the rising sun,

Faces, smiling everyone
Yeah, she is a whole new tradition
I feel it in my heart"
I won this ribbon necklace from Marie,
The Joy of Fashion  
It was her 2 year blogiversary giveaway.

This photo is Marie, from The Joy of Fashion. 
This is how she wore the necklace.

"Talk about her like a 

Dancing in a Eastern Dream

Yeah, she makes me feel like a river

That carries me away"

With the jacket.

"But I'm at home and I just don't belong 

So far away from the garden we love
She is what moves in the soul of a dove

Soon I shall see just how black was my night
When we're alone in Her City of light"

Without the jacket.

"Rising from the neon gloom

Shining like a crazy moon
Yeah, she turns me on like a fire    I get high"
My dress was thrifted.
My purple suede boots were thrifted.
My corduroy purse was thrifted. 

My blouse was thrifted.

This was the only time I got to wear the blouse because the 2nd time I washed it, I accidentally shrank it in the dryer. So then it didn't fit me, so I had to donate it. I'm sad too because it was all tie dye with peace signs.

I so want to play guitar like these guys.

She makes me see
My woman from Tokyo
She's so good to me"
