This is not a pity party and I'm not looking for lots of people to comment telling me how great I look. Pictures like that of myself make me cringe so I'm not going to subject myself to it. It's just not a big deal.
But don't worry, I will post lots of pictures of stuff. Cool stuff, groovy stuff, unusual stuff, awesome stuff, and just plain weird stuff!
I love vintage, well, anything. But being of a larger size I often can't wear vintage clothes. Most of my wardrobe is newer (thrifted) garments. But I also can't abide cookie cutter, what's hot now fashion so I seek out items that are a little different and style them to suit me and only me. I generally gravitate toward quality. There's nothing like getting a really well made piece of clothing for less than a crap t-shirt from Walmart. Oddly enough, I now have 2 Old Navy dresses that I adore. The styles are great, the quality is surprisingly good and the fit is great. Here's one all ready for date night with hubby.
Sundress (Old Navy, thrifted), cropped wool sweater (Charlie and Robin, thrifted), shoes (Jeffrey Campbell, thrifted) bakelite bangles (assorted sources.)
And the bangles... Well, I'll be doing a post shortly about my plastic bangle collection. Ok, it's a bit of an obsession. Fine! I have a problem.
Clearly, I will have to pull out the good camera and try some different photo locations. There will be improvements. But for now, this will do.
