A bit of shopping
I really, really don't want the Summer to end and still hope the weather will be nice & warm in Fall. But I stared to think about my Fall wardrobe, nevertheless. In the last few days I managed to find some pieces of clothing I thought will be necesssary. All of them are basics, I would say. I don't know if you agree with me, but the basics are the harderst to shop for. Sometimes the simplest things are the hardest to come by, as the shops seem to be rather full of the trendiest things than the classic ones. And the other difficulty is of a completely different nature- basics usually don't shout to you "Come on, you have to take me home right now". They aren't funny. The're just the things you have to have in your wardrobe. That's why I'm so happy I found a few very nice sheer long sleeve T-shirts in Vero Moda-they were on sale and cost about 4 dollars a piece:-). I bought them in black, light gray and cream. I even managed to find white long sleeve burnout tee, yay:-). Those tees will be great for layering. They can be worn with anything from sweaters to blazers. I've been on a lookout for long cardis and so far I managed to find a nice one in dark gray. I also bought a classic black cardigan. I love cardigans, they are my favourite kind of sweater. They can be paired with anything. Since I've fallen in love with the Givenchy Fall collection so much, I wanted to find both the leather pants and the leather skirt ( O, the blessing of the second hand shops and Internet auctions!:-). The skirt is great, the pants will go the the tailor to be taken in a bit, since I would like them to be more skinny. I found gray ankle boots I really like. But I still wonder if the black lace-ups I bought on eBay will arrive at last. Unfortunately, I've already lost several packages in the last few months. That has never happened before. One of the packages contained knee high Minnetonkas:-(. I try not to lose hope and am still waiting for the lace-ups, they would be perfect for Fall. I'm still working to enlarge my rather small collection of scarves. I've never really worn scarves apart from those thock woolen ones in Winter, but now they seem like essential accessories to me. Luckily, I thrifted three new ones and I continue to search for more.
But Summer will stay with us for a little bit while, won't it? Please, please! How can it go away when I just found the pair of jeans so perfect to be made into cut-off shorts. I'm sure they will be my favourites, I've searched for ithem for so long;-). I still want to wear my short shorts!
I've just discovered the software PhotoScape, which has nice choice of options for making collages, that's my first try at using it. I hope I'll get the hang of it soon.
