Today has been a good day. I didn’t have to set my alarm or look at the time. I ran into a wonderful friend whom I hadn’t seen in a long time. I had the opportunity to browse in my closet and meditate on what I felt like wearing and blogging about.
The striped cardigan I’d recently thrifted fit perfectly under my upcycled sweater vest, creating another layer of interest. I added a new-to-me silver bangle to my collection, along with an amazing ring, both found at a thrift store.
I was happy to be wearing my vest again after it’s trip to California to be featured in Altered Couture Magazine.
I hadn’t worn this upcycled silk and cashmere scarf in a long time. After wrapping it around my neck, I realized that the silk matched the insert in the back of the vest.
This was also the debut of my new shoes. I received an email announcing a major sale at a very exclusive shoe store, so naturally I had to go check it out, right? I mean, I’ve never bought anything there ($$$$) but I’ve spent many a delightful moment browsing. These were love at first sight and seriously marked down. What would you have done? I rest my case.
Yes, it was a good day. I hope yours has gone well, too.
