This is my first time publishing an outfit post without Oliver in the room.  He came along waaaaayy before I was blogging. He was my companion when I was at a 9 to 5 and would come home saying ‘what the hell am I going to do with my life.’  Now I’m at my computer at home without my partner sitting next to me as I hit ‘publish.’
Michael and I did something today that we don’t normally do.  We went to Easter mass.
You know what’s funny? Someone told us to look out for signs of Ollie in various ways over the next few days since his passing.  Just before we walked into the cathedral on fifth avenue, we saw an English Springer Spaniel in brown and white – a breed that we haven’t seen together in that same colour since mid last year.   Maybe I’m stretching it, but I’ll take it as a sign. 
ps. I first had on old ankle boots but said f*k it and changed into heels.

pps.  Thank you for your heart felt comments under Friday’s post.  Every now and then when I’m feeling strong enough I go back and re-read them (they still make me tear up so I have to puff out my chest before looking at them).   I didn’t realize how many really caring readers I had out there until right then.

Thank you. Thank you.  Thank you.

    I’m sorry about your loss. I wanted to write something on that post but I’m not good at it. I absolutely know what you’re going through though. PS the dress is gorgeous!
