People ask me all the time, "How do you find anything in your size?" That's one of the reasons I've been such a frequent secondhand customer lately, to find clothes that actually fit my smaller figure. I'm deadly patient, and will look through all the sizes, because so many clothes are hung in the wrong sizes, sizing varies greatly by manufacturer, and vintage clothing tends to run small. I'm also always on the lookout for clothes or accessories I think my blogger buddies (at least the ones whose sizes and addresses I know) might like. I also enjoy looking at interesting clothing and imagining the previous wearers.
Gave the sweater a little color boost for funsies.
Also, I thought for my 50th birthday which is soon-ish I'd get a professional but honest head shot, no re-touching of wrinkles or jowls or that weird turkey neck. You may think I don't notice that my face is sometimes a little unfocused in pics, and yeah, lots of peeps my age don't want their close-up, but I do notice that. I just don't fix it. But I have a pretty good camera, and I'm going to include more close-ups in future posts to: 1) prove I do not have Photo-Shop; and 2) learn to embrace my face of five decades.
I'd like to say a haircut is in my near future, but trying to grow it out, so it's back-burnered right now.
P.S. If I'm not the most visible at Patti's weekly feature of "Visible Monday" at Not Dead Yet Style, I'ma be real disappointed. I mean, look at this sweater. P.S. I did not see Patti's post until after I'd finished this one.
