My Millie Girl
I met my lovely friend Laura years ago while working at a locally owned clothing store here in VT. They carried mostly all natural fiber clothing and most of our shoppers there were 30 years plus. I like to think that Laura and I added a touch of youth and fun to the store. When I was hired I had pink hair which now is so funny looking back as it was kind of an "earthy" style store if you know what I mean. Anyhow the owners were great and if I hadn't been hired I might not have met Laura and been friends all these years later even after she moved back to Massachusetts. Sometimes it's rare to find such special friendships and I feel truly blessed to have her in my life. She is inspiring, thoughtful, wise, fashionable and full of beauty.Laura works now at Modern Millie in Salem, MA and created the blog Millie Girl. In her on words,"Millie is inspiring creativity in fashionable living in Salem,MA and beyond. Here you will find her daily musing on vintage and modern fashion, art, and lifestyle that step outside the path of the mainstream world." The other day she did two post on me and my blog saying the most lovely things. Thank you Laura. I adore you. Now go check out Millie Girl and be inspired!
