The little things

I’m not sure how I feel about these pants.

I’ve been searching for the perfect pair of red straight leg or skinny jeans for a while, and while these still aren’t quite up to my expectations, I think I like them. Other than the fact that they’re skinny pants and they pretty much just go “BOOM I have hips.” Which I’m not sure is altogether flattering. And you can also plainly see the pockets through the fabric, which is annoying.

Out of 50+ pictures, these were the only two that I remotely like. Because of the pants. So we shall see if I regret buying them (at least they were thrifted!) and I will continue to look for the perfect red jeans. One of my other problems with these is that they’re not jean fabric, and they’re not very good at shaping my figure. So there’s that.

Today is a day when scarves are particularly handy– I really didn’t want to shower today because I’ve had a headache all day. A scarf is the perfect disguise for hair that’s a bit too dirty to wear in public. Not that I was really in public today, other than a very short jaunt to a tiny thrift store about five minutes away from home (where I got this sweater).

I forgot to take a picture of my shoes (headache, remember?) but suffice it to say they drive me nuts. One of them squeaks every time I walk. So irritating.

Speaking of shoes, while I was at the little thrift store, I saw three pairs of shoes that I almost bought just to resell. They were Salvatore Ferragamos. Not really my taste, and they were definitely on the small side, but they’re cute. And I thought someone might want them. But then I found other things I wanted (aka sweaters) and I figured I’d leave them for someone else. I did, however, take pictures. For you.

They remind me of Cee. She wore Ferragamo shoes a few days ago.

I tried on quite a few things, considering how small the store was, but only ended up with the sweater I’m wearing and another of the same brand that is maroon and has birds on it. You can see it in this picture, sort of.

And see that coat? The furry one? Yes. I almost bought it. It was vintage rabbit fur. Softest. Coat. Ever.

But it was falling apart at one seam, and it was too big. So I left it and got an old hardback edition of Lorna Doone, an illustrated hardback edition of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, and a pretty old teacup instead.

I hope you are all having a lovely day! I’m going to combat this headache with some Chai tea and vanilla cinnamon zucchini bread. Fresh from the oven, no less.
