While I was in California I loved hanging out in the old parts.. like old town. Yes I know it’s touristy. But I love the old buildings with character and nostalgia of the Spanish-Mexican architecture and the plentiful of colors and the plethora of textures. One day I want to build a little studio that looks like all those old buildings. I think it would make a fantastic little place to nest.
Anyway, the vintage silk Escada strawberry top I am wearing is one of my favorite pieces in my closet. I scored it a couple of years ago in a thrift store and it is still hasn’t lost its luster. When I first picked it out I got made fun of by my sisters. They told me I pick clothing that looks like it came out of our grandma’s closet. Oh, but they were mistaken. Granted I made a few adjustments (like taking off the overly-tacky gold buttons) I get so many compliments on it!! And those are the best kind of fashion finds. Unique, colorful pieces that no one else will have.. unless someone (like my grandma) digs it out of their attic and starts prancing around in it. It is vintage after all. Ehehe.
And so, I thought it was so appropriate to be wearing something old somewhere old.
