The Rain, the Park, and Other Things

I'm surprised this dress hasn't shown up more often on here. I feel like I wear it every other day. It's one of those extremely rare second hand finds that didn't need to be taken in or up or down or sideways--it just fits, like a glove.

It's such a relief to have something in your closet that you know will always work, whether you're tired or grouchy or lazy or just plain fed up. It's like a security blanket, the kind you're not afraid to wear in public.

I have never had a glove that fit me right, but I can relate to good vintage finds

Come to think of it Afitz, neither have I...they always make me look like I have monster hands. It probably doesn't help that my favorite pair happen to be emerald green leather. Huuulk smaaaaash!

Security blankets that can be worn in public are just pure AWESOME. My closet is full of them, ha ha.

Don't you love finally being able to go bare-legged?

Yea!

Suzy said...

Your boots I want. The only ones I find are so pricey though.

Oh man I am having the fugliest week. I overindulged so much this winter, nothing fits me comfortably anymore! I was literally squirming in my bar stool last night, desperately wanting to be safe in bed in my crappy old nighty, watching The Hours or something of equal life-discomfort.

No huzzah for me! Not a one!!

Lydia said...
