This dress, sadly, has a terrible sun stain on the left shoulder. It is all faded and pinkish. But I bought it anyway. Mostly because with all the stripes and contrast, you don't really notice the flaw. I don't anyway.
Someone said recently that she really liked all my cool vintage/thrifted clothes and she wished she could still dress cool, but now that she has kids she is so busy that she doesn't have the time. It made me think:
1) I am also a mother and quite busy.
2) I don't spend any more time seeking out clothes than I would if I tried to dress normal. In fact, I think it would take me longer. Here is why: James and I shop for clothes at thrift stores because that is what we can afford. And it just so happens that Goodwill is a treasure trove. It is Christmas. It has a dollar rack of clothes that normal people don't like, clothes that were made for me.
Then if I do actually get something new, it's still from the clearance rack. Like those shoes. It doesn't take longer to find sales if you don't ever look at full priced merchandise.
I bought the necklace full price. Because 18 dollars is a small price to pay for one's heart's desire. :)
