What do you do when you need a lift in your spirit? When things are eyes wide shut? Occasionally for me its to indulge in my favorite ice cream (haagen dazs..so friggin good...shhh don't tell anyone!). When I can't have that, I reach for color. It always brings me back to life and how could it not?? It's like a deep breath of revival for me. I smile at color and from what you see on the blog I embrace it to no ends. So today I brought out the brights in my closet.
This wonderful bag I bought in London in '06 from a street vendor for a mere 20 pounds ($40 US) and its a great replica of a well known staple bag. Can you guess?? The desigin of it is not as important as the memories that are attached. I remember almost everything from that trip; I shopped and shopped and shopped, did some sightseeing for a bit, but it was mainly a shopping trip, from New Look to Dorothy Perkins to Primark to Marks & Spencer to Harrods to TopShop. Did I mention I shopped? If you haven't already, a trip to London should be on your bucket list.
Back then I wasn't a thrifter, but could you imagine what would be found if I was??? Tears to the eyes right now at just the thought of it all!
These earrings were gifted/passed on to me from my mother when she wore the fabulousness out of them in the early 90s...parents had style before we did, remember that!
This double braid came to light after not wanting to deal with ANY type of sweated out hairstyle. Easy and yet so chic
