Ok Fashionistas: we are all struggling with this. How can we justify the time that we spend on relatively trivial subjects, such as fashion, in a world that seems bent on its utter devastation?
Simple! Okay, not:
Nothing is simple, but it is important to embrace BEAUTY and ART when times seem dark. Focus your eyes at the light at the end of the tunnel.
YESTERDAY, UNBEKNOWNST TO ME, AND BEFORE THE VEGAS MASSACRE, I WORE A BOLD AND COLORFUL OUTFIT. I WENT TO BLOOMINGDALE’S TO SHOP, AND SUPPORT THEIR EFFORT IN TNE FIGHT AGAINST BREAST CANCER.
Little did I know the very next day I would only want to wear black.
I was simply looking for a comfy sofa, a place where guests can sleep in a small city space. Bloomingdale’s has good furniture, it did not disappoint- and I was happy to buy a shimmering pink blusher and a reusable water bottle- as the donations supported breast cancer.
Below; No One Fights Alone.
I don’t always, read- SELDOM- shop big, commercial type stores- you know this about me. But this was a valuable endeavor and I bought where the proceeds went generously for this cause. I did need a cool, reusable, water bottle and I have always looked good with a pink blusher- Thanks Bobbi Brown!
Below, I am in the store, sporting my Gucci-ish “angry cat” sweater , and thinking of living room layouts- leather verses tweed? L shaped or straight lines? You know- the weighty issues of our times.
I know my sweater reads Gucci. It is not. I can not personally justify that expense now. I feel like money would be better spent going to causes and not my own bountiful closets. I got it at Zulily.com. I love this flashsale site as it tends to include small companies that are not well known. I also bought my high waisted denim there, and last year as well, these buckled booties, that are so comfortable to wear.
Today, I would wear this again. But today, it would be void of color.
It is just how I feel. I imagine you feel the same. Anyway, for those of you up for the great distraction, here is a shopping collage made through Polyvore. If you are a fan of Gucci, Kenzo, or angry cats, this is for you.
Wising you Peace, Joy, Shelter and Perspective, and of course, Love from NYC!
