The world is changing. Our country is changing.

We are living in times when more than ever, we need eachother.

It’s been a challenging year for most.

Dancing through survival is an ART.

So no matter how much you have, or how little you have, it’s the love in your life that makes you rich. Even with nothing, you can still live La Dolce Vita.

Continuing on with our daily ensembles, this year has been full of ripped jeans, prints with culture, dusty sequins, and the colors of America.

On Ruby: Vintage flannel from ‘HOME’, boustier from Forever 21 that we dyed beige, Dolce & Gabbana patent leather boots (stolen from our mother), red skirt was previously a vintage dress from ‘Wear it again, Sam’, we cut the top off and sewed up the back.

On Summer: Chain necklace from Salvage Vintage, Red vintage dress from ‘Frock You’, Blue and white hawaiian print shirt is a family heirloom/hand-me-down from our great grandfather, Captain James Herbert Kelly, blue Vans that I’ve had since I was a sophmore in high school.

On Ruby: Lily Farouche rhinestoned jean jacket (also stolen from mother, bought in the 80′s), vintage nightgown from Salvation, vintage knee-highs from god only knows where, Jeffrey Campbell black platforms.

On Summer: Mexican embroidered top from Wasteland, ripped vintage Levis from Studio Vintage, long gold sequin coat from the Pasadena Flea Market, brown Minnetonka boots.

La Dolce Vita

There’s a mattress on the floor

The refrigerator’s empty

Strung lights above the door

Wildflowers by the entry

There’s a dusty windowpane

And we let the birds fly in

Even when it starts to rain

There’s a rainbow in the kitchen

What good is life if there’s no fight

We’re struggling but we’re not alone

You by my side we’ll be alright

It’s ugly but it’s beautiful

Baby it’s tough times in America

If love is free I got everything I need

So take my hand and never let go

Baby it’s tough times in America

If love is free I got everything I need

This is La Dolce Vita

We read by candelight

The television’s never working

But it’s full of love tonight

Even though we both have nothing

What good is life if there’s no fight

We’re struggling but we’re not alone

You by my side we’ll be alright

Its’ ugly but it’s beautiful

Baby it’s tough times in America

If love is free I got everything I need

So take my hand and never let go

Baby it’s tough times in America

If love is free I got everything I need

This is La Dolce Vita
