Ode to a Dream Girl in Vintage

"Another sunny day, I met you up in the garden. . .
. . .I took a photograph of you in the herbaceous border
It broke the heart of men and flowers and girls and trees."
My Bestest Mate, Mich is like a
Belle & Sebastian song come to life.
And not just because she went to
Glasgow 3 times in 1 year with me.
She lives a happy life in vintage dresses
and will travel at the drop of a hat to see me.

Like to Mexico, D.F.

Or Paris, even when she was preggers.

She will always dance with you -
no matter the setting or circumstance.
"I could dance all night like I'm a soul boy
But you know I'd rather drag myself across the dance floor"
Like here she is dancing on her wedding day
in her second vintage dress of the day.

(This was the 1st vintage dress of the day.)

Mich makes me want to cut bangs but,
like 80% of us girls that would be a mistake.
I might just do it, though.
If I could look half as perfect as her it'd be worth it.

She got us backstage at the Hollywood Bowl
and all she had to do was walk around with an accordion.

You know the best part about her?

No, not the fact that's pretty to look at and funny.
She's an investment banker.


  1. I see why you love Mitch so much....she is adorable!

  2. these pictures of her are beautiful. knock out.
