I'll be examining my wardrobe through new eyes now. So many times I've nearly given away this black dress only to think, "But it is a simple black dress, you may need it someday." It isn't that I lack imagination, but layering has never been my strong point beyond perhaps a poloneck and a cardigan.
Rayon Chadwick's of Boston dress-Thrift World
Halter top-ancient, can't remember
Satin jacket-Filene's, early 90's
Bangles-thrifted assorted locations
Black and white glass beads-Sarpy County Historical Society Yard Sale
Blue and brown beads-Thrift World, 90th and Maple (Omaha)
1940's suede handbag-Thrift World
Feral Cat Guerlain Jicky (still don't like it, but I'm trying to understand it)
I wonder, could I get people to ask for my autograph? If I saw someone with a fart blaster in Office Max getting a photo taken, I'd wonder what was up.
Alas, no one asked for an autograph, and I headed home with my cheap office supplies, though they no longer sell ledger books. I know, paperless society, but I'm a last-century sort of woman and I need a ledger book where I can note things in ink. Our accountant thinks I'm hopeless too. *Shrug*.
What about you? Have you found any wardrobe stretching tips from the past that you put into practise today? I'm so inspired I may sew up a few halters from the vintage rayon prints I've been hoarding in my fabric stash.
