Across The River On A Log Sweater
One of my favourite labels -- Preloved -- that creates new clothing using discarded sweaters, shirts, wool trousers and denim, among other things, is having a sample and warehouse sale at the end of the month. This could be dangerous!
I had planned on visiting the Goodwill store this weekend, as well as some vintage shops around the city. I didn't get to either the Goodwill store or any vintage shop. The snow was my excuse on Saturday. The cold was my excuse on Sunday. In reality, I think that I was too tired from the work week to get excited about clothing shopping and I didn't want to go to any thrift and/or vintage shops in that state. It probably would have been a waste of time -- I wouldn't have been able to see any jewels in the rough. On the other hand, it might have "revived" me. Oh well. There is always next weekend.
I may be heading into a period of wearing long skirts. (Obviously) I didn't wear a long skirt today, but I have a couple of outfits involving long skirts planned for the work week. In part, I think that I want to wear long skirts because I know them to be warmer (and it will continue to be cold this week). I think that I also want to wear long skirts because ... well ... because I just want to.
I am wearing a flannel shirt by Urban Renewal from Urban Outfitters with a vintage brooch, a woollen tunic by Zara (sale), vintage leggings and woollen shorts by Lululemon, vintage socks by CK and vintage LLBean boots.
