Sorry, this item has sold.


The autumnal cooler temps have finally arrived, gifting all with the changing of the leaves, pumpkin spiced EVERYTHING, and everyone's favorite, seasonal depression. For Penny, the crisp air triggers a time for reflection and self evaluation that ends in questioning all of her life decisions and wondering where things took a detour. As of late, Pen's been having serious dread when it comes to going to work, often considering turning around and going back home during her morning commute. She knows the world would go on, business as usual. So, what's the point of it all? These kinds of thoughts have been stirring in her head for quite some time now. Knowing it's not the most healthy, the self observer makes an appointment with her treasured counselor, Nia, whom Penny wishes she could be friends with IRL, but #ethics. In an attempt to boost her mood, Penny throws on a beloved beaded frock (black, of course) with a fringed, black leather jacket and white pants (we don't follow that whole "after Labor Day" rule), before her sit down with Nia. If she's going to spread out on the grey, velvet couch and emotionally unload anyway, she may as well try to look good on the outside, despite how she feels on the inside.

This exquisite Laurence Kazar short sleeved top features:
✶Black, gold, and white decorative beading details along scalloped sleeve and bottom hems
✶Dainty floral embellishments along neckline
✶Gold trimmed keyhole back opening with hook and eye closure at center back neck
✶Squiggle bead and sequin design pattern sewn on 100% silk. Fully lined with shoulder pads

Seriously, though, sessions with the art therapist feel like having conversations with a good friend (that costs $125 for each get together. WTF is it with affordable mental healthcare?). In a super cute room. That smells like lemongrass. And, to top it off, Nia encourages Penny to draw during their meetings if she can't put her feelings into words. Usually, Pen's artwork starts off with a black hole of despair that somehow turns into a flower of some kind. Nia suggests that, maybe the illustrator feels like a weed blowing in the wind. Or, that, maybe, just maybe, she's a flower in the dirt trying to find the light. The latter feels like a more accurate analysis.
