Dolce Vita

Do you remember in The Brady Bunch when one of the family members would need an obscure sum of money for a particular cause ($2, 140 to give a stray puppy a life-saving vaccination… or $8, 232 to stop the town’s library from being bulldozed… for example).  It would always seem as if their luck had just run out, when Marcia (Marcia Marcia) would spot a poster for an equally obscure competition and a top prize of the exact amount they were trying to get their hands on.

If real life were like that, I’d be staring saucer-eyed at a prize jackpot of €203.16 right now and the only thing standing between me and this dress would be the minor obstacle of winning some brother- sister dance competition.

Daydreaming takes up a big portion of my real-life.  €203.16 is too much to pay for a sundress. Is it? (I love it)

If I were a rich girl (a whole other daydream), I’d be taking the whole dang collection.

that dress is amazing! beautiful in deed!... ugh...I waste a whole lotta time daydreaming too... I used to think it was good, it made me feel more special, creative, imaginative... but now I think it just makes it worse... imagining things I can't have... that's just emotional pain waiting to happen... sorry if I come up too "downer"...I've been daydreaming too much about things that I KNOW are never going to happen... makes me sad...
I'm starting to think I should control my daydreams into "illusions" that can actually come true.. but that wouldn't be daydreaming, right?

Yes Thelma, that's one lovely dress. Hopefully someone else will come up with a version that is more friendly to our pockets.

Btw, talking about "versions", look what I found:
