Steel Magnolias

This post's strong accentuation of soft, feminine colors combined with a thoroughly industrial setting reminded me of the women in Steel Magnolias; pretty and delicate, yet at the same time, as tough as nails. As of late, it has been a blast playing the part of Shelby in a production of Steel Magnolias I am currently working on. Such a great show. You know what else is great? Thrifting vintage Levi's like these and chopping the legs off to transform them into cute new high waisted shorts. These are now my most comfortable pair of shorts, all mine $6.50 and five minutes of DIY-ing later.

this is a casual and effortless look but you still look really chic, maybe it is the crisp canvas shoes or your perfect make-up and toussled hair but I love it!
