Clearly whatever I do for my birthday will now be low key. And throw in the possible cancellation of my Europe trip and my sprouting seeds of bitterness are hard to squash at times. During one of these down moments I turned to my loyal old friend to pick me right back up and remind me of all the things I have to be grateful and thankful for.
Good old Shopbop, you never let me down. Since I was down I needed something bright and cheerful to pick me up and I may or may not have purchased this pick me up dress that reminded me of a grown up Rainbow Brite dress. I am almost certain if we revisited Rainbow Brite as an adult she would be rocking a more subtle version of her Rainbow colored frock and would be partial to Alice and Olivia dresses like this or this dress. Any dress that reminds me of my childhood is a must buy in my book. And this Rainbow Brite plush doll and this awesome Rainbow Brite house/case were some of my favorite toys, you know when I wasn't playing with my Barbies.
My First Rainbow Brite dress, a Halloween costume made by Mom, that was worn much more often then just on Halloween.
24 years later I am waiting on the grown up version to arrive.
