I am only human. I admit like shopping. I also like to make a bargain now and then, like I have not been out spending money, but actually saving...
Who am I fooling? Certainly not my hubby.
The only shop he'll follow me shopping is the Salvation Army's store. He's steering straight to the books. I, after long of hesitation, also buy clothes.
This rubyrosed dress I found just a couple of months ago. It is actually a tiny bit too small, so I did not buy it first time. I kept dreaming of it, solid cotton fabric and those thick ivory laces both on the dress and the shawl.
My daughter said she could help me change it, so I dived in. Bought it. Serina, when she should rip it open, noticed the label. She blogged it and found that Liberty of London was an English made fabric from the seventies, used by famous designers.
The antique lover in me spoke. Now i wear the dress with pride, but always with a jacket, to hide the half open zipper.
Morale; recycling is good, bright, googling daughters even better.
