lavender gingham for you, Dolly
I feel so lucky that I got the chance to see Dolly Parton perform. She looks remarkable, sounds remarkable, and is just the sweetest, funniest, most down-to-Earth legend alive. She told stories about her humble upbringing, made jokes about her "trashy" appearance, played about 8 instruments, and even rapped (which was god-awful, but she knew it and was just wanting to make everybody laugh). I wore a lavender gingham dress (tucked in so as to look like a skirt) and a 50s sheer pink top. Pete was sweet enough to match me by wearing a lavender cowboy shirt. If I had my way, we'd match every day & we'd ride around town on a tandem bike. I am half-kidding. You can see my lavender dress in its entirety here.
I hope that life is treating you well. much love. - crystal lee
