I’m in the middle of updating my site, but I realized I forgot to post these, yesterday.
On Wednesday, I leave for Florida. While I’m looking forward to family, friends and warmer weather, I’m sad about Bobby and the baby animals being alone on Christmas. I also have to admit that despite my aversion to the cold (I’m wrapped in a blanket as I type), I prefer the dress code that goes along with it. I’m a fan of layering, tights, gloves and hats. I don’t get the same satisfaction in dressing during the summer – and it’s summer all year long, in Florida. I rarely, if ever, bare my shoulders, hate bathing suits and haven’t worn flip flops since I was a kid. To Floridians, that’s blasphemy. I still don’t know what clothing to pack. I’ll just take the remaining days to enjoy the holiday weather (although, it’s freakishly warm right now). We’re going ice skating tonight and holiday shopping, tomorrow.
vintage stetson hat (borrowed from Bobby) – beacon’s closet (with store credit = free!)
vintage double breasted jacket – same as above (yay, free)
vintage navy sweater top – thrifted, 50 cents
vintage belt – from my mom’s shop
multicolor plaid skirt, thrifted and shortened (was mid calf)
tights – h&m
maroon boots – thrifted by my mom
maroon bag – nine west, also from my mom
I ended up switching boots, halfway through the day. Bobby surprised me with a couple of early Christmas presents – maroon ankle boots and black oxford heels. I switched to the ankle boots, but didn’t get a picture.
As you can see, I get a lot of my clothing from Beacon’s closet. I recently took in a bag of old clothing (stuff I don’t wear, not worth selling) and exchanged them for seven or eight better items, with credit left to spare. If you are in New York or have a similar store nearby, I highly recommend you take advantage!
Question of the day: What sites/blogs do you visit most frequently (besides the usual myspace, facebook, gmail, etc.)? Some of mine: Huffington Post, CNN, New York Times, Etsy, Flickr, Weardrobe , Le Blog de Betty and of course, the other links I have to the right.
