I've unpacked my stuff, done lots of laundry and settled back in at home.
I'm still nursing that sinus bug I caught on the plane and I think my water heater
might be broken, but I'm too tired to have a look at it. Besides, the spring sun
is warm and the kitties are happy - and I made some bargains overseas!
What 20 bucks at a goodwill clothing store gave me:
I got three dresses, two of them cotton crepe dresses in black and brown.
I love crepe in summertime. It's airy, easy to wash and iron free.
The black one is a little tight around the shoulders, but it was only
4 dollars - so how could I resist? I'll just have to figure something out.
When the sun and warmth returns I like to mix up my usual black and purple
with my third favorite color - aqua. Occasionally I also turn away from
my darkly romantic style in favor of a more bohemian Moroccan/Indian look.
Cinnamon man told me this garment looks a bit like man's shirt but I like
the simplicity coupled with the stark color - and it looks really good on me :)
(And it's gonna look great together with my Vera Bradley bag :))
At a Mexican-American store I found these great handmade
Dia de los Muertos/ Halloween party streamers. The place was amazing,
with Mexican fiesta decorations in every theme and every color.
Lots of sugar skulls naturally, but also tons of streamers with for instance
LGBTQ wedding themes. There was a clearance, so I got two for 10 dollars.
I'm glad I let myself off the no shopping for the week,
it would have been silly feeling guilty about the few things I got.
But now I'm back on the wagon and off clothes shopping
for the rest of the year. I feel very content with my closet as is now.
