I have been a busy little bee without really intending to be. One of the biggest things I accomplished over the past couple of days is whittling away my wardrobe. I am back down to about 30 items hanging in my closet. I didn’t purge my other items as in a “haul to Goodwill”. I simply took them upstairs to another closet to see if they will be missed. And a few items still remaining that may not be around long because I know, I really know, that I don’t wear them. But I was afraid to “let go”. I seem to roll better when my wardrobe is pared down–getting dressed is a breeze.
I also spent quite a bit of time adding things to my Etsy store. As promised, the Missoni dress and the Charles Jourdan skirt have been listed. Please don’t have a stroke when you see my prices. I don’t typically deal with high-end items but after doing my research on both pieces, I felt these were fair. Plus, individuals are always welcomed to offer or negotiate. We shall see. Oh, a funny anecdote about that Charles Jourdan. Yes, I did try it on. Let’s just say, if I could have added some ties, it would have made a really fancy apron. So, come to find out, a French 44 from the 1970s is different from a 44 (which technically would’ve been an US14 and too big) today….just like an US 12 today is different from a 12 thirty years ago. I did not know this. After taking measurements on the skirt, it is sized more like an US 6 today. Will I ever be a 6? Doubtful. So into the Etsy shop it went. Au revoir my lovelies:
In more affordable fare, I also added:
You know, seeing these Dr. Sholls really made me nostalgic for the 1970s. The Vermont Country Store carries them and I am seriously considering getting a pair for next summer. Especially if they really do help to shape the legs. Any testimonies out there?
If you see anything that tickles your fancy, check out my store!
Hope everyone survived Monday. I had a nice lunch with some friends that ended at Barnes and Noble and another vegan cookbook purchase–this time it is European food! Now Brett and I are off to the movies. Two for one at the Regent so we will be spending a whopping $4.00 to see “Skyfall”.
P.S. Evidently, according to the WP spell/grammar check, I used the “passive voice” like 100 bazillion times in this particular post. Sorry about that.
