Fashion and PhilosophyIf I were a fashion super-hero, I'd like to be called "Eclectia". Maybe "Mishmoshia". Though as super-heroes go, I kind of enjoy not carrying such a burden. I cry too easily, or get freakishly angry at mean people. I suppose that comes with the Gemini personality. But let's blame it on hormones. There are 2 severe sides to my personality, since I hit the big 40. A self reflective Zen student with a pre-pubescent "gimme-now!" tendancy. Waiting for my middle-aged Butterfly to surface. Hurry up already!
That's probably why my closet is filled with "trends" that I am already sick of , price tags still attached. They have since "gone out of style" or don't suit my fancy anymore. I see them as the equivalent of the red,shiny convertible that the Y chromosome is so fond of during "the change". I feel like I'm waiting to turn 16 so I can get my license to drive, or 21, so I can be "legal". Puberty all over again!
The great thing about it, this time around, is that I am much quicker to stop looking Outward for the solutions, and turn my attention Inward. All will be revealed in time. So I can relax. Remember who's in charge.
So, my last season, freshly tagged clothes are hitting the consignment shop. A little poorer in wallet, but hopefully richer in awareness. With the knowledge this time around that the Yen to my Yang isn't hidden. I just forgot where I put it ! By the Way, has anyone seen my keys ???
An embellished peasant top, plaid cotton skirt, tank, floral scarf, belt, thrifted leather mules, gold-coin dangle earrings. All bought on clearance, Dots or thrifted.
A rain shower forced us inside, thus the jaundiced color. Poor Bitty!
I'm off to visit my parents for a week, so don't forget me! See ya next week :)
Hopefully more tanned and rested.
Time in the country is good for the soul !
I can't wait to get a remote!!! My gift to me ;)
These chunky mules are so comfy!!! They're made by So.
