When I was in Spo-Compton the boyf’s Mom gifted me yet another vintage fur. Delight, joy, and excitement! Like I’ve said before I love furs. Don’t get confused I also love animals. But there is just something about a beautiful fur wrap or coat that I just can’t say no to. This piece is very much like another one I got as a gift about two years ago. Four whole minks, feet and all, attached to each other to form a wrap. The best part is the one that I got this weekend is about 75 years old!
On Friday my work place claimed another one of my beautiful necklaces. This time it was my red beaded rosary. The cross came off during my morning madness and no matter how hard I looked I couldn’t find it. Boo!!! You would think I would have learned to tuck my necklaces in to my shirt but no. So this is my newest replacement. I got it as a gift when I was 17 and have worn it off and on since then. I will not loose this one…..
The boyf and I are spending the weekend relaxing in Spo-Compton. The down town area is most def not my cup of tea. But these outside farm areas are so beautiful how could anyone be stressed out. We are staying in his parents beautiful log cabin mansion. Below the house is an alpaca ranch. They own hundreds of alpacas and his mom selling clothing and other items made out of alpaca fur. These are just a few picks of the area.
As I was browsing teenvogue.com I came across pics from the Chloe 2009 fall collection. I found a look that I already love and have been practicing. Oversized paper bag pants, worn high, with belted waists. I love this look for many reasons, one the extra fabric in the legs make the pants super comfortable. Two the belted high waist pulls attention to one of the slimmer parts on a women’s body. And three they are perfect for work since you don’t have to worry about your panties showing when you bend over. A win win for sure.
Today I was thinking back to the days when I worked in coffee shops. I loved working with the customers and have always had a flair for mixing flavors. But my favorite part was the fact that the shops I worked at always subscribed to the “New York Times,” kept in the shop for the customers to read. But at the end of the day I would always recycle the paper. Everyday, that is, except Thursdays. Why you ask, the style section runs on Thursdays! The only section in the paper that won’t depress you after reading it.
Over the years I have been hassled my many people about the amount of clothes I have. They also love to bring up the fact that I have a hard time throwing anything away. I have caught a lot of heat from a lot of people about these subjects and today I would like to make a point. The boots in the photos above are a great example of why I don’t throw anything out. I brought them on sale at my work probably 3 years ago. The main reason I bought them was they were only like $9.99. So in to the collection they went without a thought of when I would wear them. Low and behold last year the only thing I wanted to wear was ankle boots. But not so low that I couldn’t wear my creepy little socks that no one should see. Where was I to find these boots? Well in my own closet of course, and I’ve worn them about 3 times a week since. The moral of the story, just because it takes 2 years to figure out how to wear them, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t buy them today!
