Early Influences...And The Original Lady Gaga.
I've had a thing for lime green for a long time now. I always wondered why I was so inexplicably drawn to the color. Particularly lime green and white prints from the late 60's early 70's. Lime green mixed with navy is even more delectable--- it's not really so much my style, but when shopping for Xtabay I always feel a kinship to the combination. So while going through some old family slides it finally dawned on me what it was.... It's my grandma! Isn't it always about our grandmother's? Let me introduce you to the original Lady Gaga...
So my mystery has been solved, every time I stumble upon a bold lime green print, it brings me back to my summer's with Gaga. Cozying up next to her on the chintz davenport, resting my head on her palm tree printed shoulder.
