I am a clothes hoarder. I loveeee all my clothes, even the ones from 20 years ago, that on an occasional slim year, I can fit into again! But, those years are fewer and farther between. That means a good chunk of my clothes just stay stashed away-- kind of tormenting me in their unwearable-ness.
I've decided to keep a few faves even if they don't fit because I do have two little girls who might one day be interested in wearing them. But, last year I sold about 3 or 4 (less expensive) leather jackets and bought my (more expensive) dream leather jacket (posted about it here.) I am realizing how much better it is having the one perfect item versus several cheaper variations... Worth every penny. I am now getting rid of my AMAZING vintage leather pants and my awesome jean collection--- all going straight to the booth.
And lots of other stuff that I actually still really like, but can't fit.
It's a big change for me, but hey, the new year has inspired me :))
This is X-man and me at Busch Gardens on New Year's Eve. We had the kids and my mom came and it was loads of fun. Busch Gardens is a really great amusement park, so if you're ever in the area you should def hit it up.
I don't have any really good pics ready to go so I am going to use one from last year that shows one of my favorite outfits from last year (sounds longer ago saying it like that.)
The outfit I'm wearing it actually a black and white super thin cotton from India dress with a DIY destroyed saber tooth tiger tee on top. It is super cool and comfy. So perfect for Florida. The silver-tone bib necklace is a vintage bib necklace from the store I already bragged about as being the best jewelry store evahhhh here. Cool thing is that the necklace came with two little bead earrings to match. I don't like the earrings, but they are good for a link ever falls out of the necklace.
Dress: Retail from Kohl's a few years ago.
Bracelets: Retail (?)
Tee: Thrifted DIY
I also splurged (about $15) on a bunch a new eyeliner. Eyeliner is my THING. You know, how ladies talk about the one make-up they always wear or whatever. Mine is eyeliner. Usually just the top lid for everyday and I get creative for dress-up or weekends or whatever. My all time favorite color was Parisian Plum by Jordana. Jordana is just a drug store brand. My Parisian Plum pencil was staring to get sharpened pretty low so I went to go get another--- Alas!!!! It is no more! So, I bought a bunch in hopes of finding a new favorite.
So far, I am LOVING Denim Blue & Purple Fusion. I also have very high hopes for Punk Rock Purple and Eggplant (thinking this might basically be my Parisian Plum with a new name). I have found that when I do wear liner under the eye, it looks good to wear a lighter shade of the color that is on the top lid.
On a not so happy note: SOMEBODY BOUGHT THE PICTURE I WANTED!!! Literally, right out from under my nose. I was working my @ss off at the booth today, arranging, rearranging... And this young lady and her lovely husband/boyfriend/parter in crime scooped my picture up from the other booth and purchased it. I though about yelling out, "NOOOO, sorry, but I already decided to buy that!!!" I had to refrain myself several times because I know that is not how these things work. I should have removed the painting to behind the counter. I can't talk/write about it anymore. I'm off to google it to death in hopes of finding it again.
