Recently, Casee Marie of The Girl Who Stole the Eiffel Tower, left me the following comment, and, natch, I had to share:
“Can I tell you a little story?
When I was out visiting my sister in Michigan recently I picked up this gorgeous faux fur vest when we were on one of our ritualistic shopping sprees; I don’t know that I’ve ever entertained a faux fur vest before in my entire life, but when I saw it I thought, Vahni and Kristy Eléna would totally be rocking this. Maybe I should be adventurous. So I snatched it up and wore it the next day with damask-print jeggings (really!) and snow boots (because I had to be realistic—it’s Michigan, after all). The boots ended up working better than my leather ones, go figure.
But anyway, I was scurrying through Target for some quick things and…I actually turned a few heads! I thought, This is what Vahni must feel like every day! In a word, it was awesome. It’s become my ultimate feel-good outfit and I have you and Kristy to thank for the inspiration.”

Casee, thank you for sharing your story! I love it!
Yes, I must admit that is what it feels like to be me. But that feeling isn’t exclusive to me. As Casee experienced, sometimes all it takes to put a little pep in your step is to try something new—and totally, unabashedly (and with a big ol’ smile on your face)—be a huge believer in you. In Target, and everywhere.
If any of you have a VG experience, please let me know!
*VG = Very Good experience emulating Vahni G. And, VG-approved. Of course.
