not to be a debbie downer, but i am feeling very detached, dear readers, from my blog. it’s weird. i was kinda down in the dumps yesterday and when i got home from work, i didn’t feel like talking about an outfit or posting the outfit i wore to work because quite frankly, i wore black pants and a boring shirt. boo. then, i stood among piles and piles of vintage, practically in tears because i need to get it photographed and in the shop soon. i just felt overwhelmed and…tired of it. as an aquarius, it is quite natural and normal for me to be really, passionately into something and then BAM! i’m over it. i just can’t connect…my brain literally shuts down and says, “stop it. that’s enough. we’ve reached capacity.”
honestly, i cried. that’s what i did. i cried a great cry for about 15 minutes, received words of encouragement from a fantastic friend, and then got right back on track.
i’m still kiiiiinda feeling detached, but i’m present nonetheless.
as most of you already know, i have a vintage clothing “store” on etsy. to keep it alive and kickin’, i’ve been known to hit up the local thrift stores on a weekly basis.
it takes a lot of patience to weed through racks and racks, sometimes boxes and bins FULL…of shit. stuff that people stain or ruin or rip and tear, so they give it away. and because i’m looking for the gems, i have no choice but to dig through it all.
needless to say, every now and then, i come across some real doozies.
case and point…
either way, i bought it.
it sat in the closet for months until i had a random thought…
wouldn’t it be funny if i HAD to style this monstrosity, post the photos on my blog, mail it to another blogger, then she had to style it and pass it on and so on and so forth…?
i mean come on…anyone can buy a cute dress, add a belt, throw on a pair of socks with her clogs and call it style! right? but what if you were asked to style an ugly item that you’d NEVER look twice at??
let it soak in while i share…because this is what put me in a lighter, happier mood last night…
you can’t tell, because i added a new “effect”, but i’m wearing super pink lip gloss and super pink blush. i was kinda going for the doll look. ha!
so…what do you think?
are you in?
if another blogger contacts you, you may decline; however, every party has a pooper and i guess it’ll just be you!
oh! and let us know who you’re choosing, so we can all follow along!
as for me…i choose christina of second skin style!
the only thing we’re each responsible for is shipping.
have fun! and think of it this way…it’ll be the mother of all remixes!
and ps. this is not meant to be an “outfit” post. you can wear it out or wear it around the house. or only wear it for your photos!
