**You've come to the right place! It's just looking a little different around here... During the weekend I was tinkering with the sleek new theme templates Blogger is offering. A bit of this and that to tweak yet, and I'm still working on a few snags. The banner/header especially, as I would like to keep that--Charlie is in it! So we'll see... What do you think of this new look?! **
One day last week I went shopping for a few new items of clothing. Last year, when doing a big spring clean, I also did a BIG cull of my wardrobe, and cut it by half. I've been happier with less, and what I do have I use better and enjoy more. But with Easter coming up soon, and some other occasions, I realized I had a gap in my wardrobe as we transition to spring/summer.
I don't enjoy shopping for clothing very much. I usually find it very frustrating, as most of what goes for ready-to-wear "fashion" in the shops is unappealing or inappropriate for me, my age and my life. And being short/petite, finding x-small sizes is sometimes not easy. I shop online occasionally, but that is not always so enjoyable either, and has it's own challenges. I enjoy sewing clothing, but that can be an expensive hobby. And sadly, my sewing machine is on the blink, and I fear it may need to go to a shop for repair, so I've been sewing nothing for a while now.
Last week's little shopping adventure was one of the very rare, few times when all my clothing requirements were met--simple, modest, feminine, beautiful, fits, and good price. I actually came home with more than what I was in search of, as I snagged a few things on sale. 70% off price is hard to resist!
And it was so nice to see fashions with more feminine styling--softer colors, lace, sheer chiffon, silk. Even finer details like shell buttons. A more delicate cut and fit. Lovely pinks and bright colors for spring. Beautiful Asian-inspired prints and florals.
PINK has always been my color...and I'm craving it a lot these days. I was happy to find some pinks--and purples--for spring and summer days ahead!
What is your special color? Do you ever crave a color?
