At the onset of each new year, we set out with fresh, positive vigor to be better people, have richer lives, look more fly and outdo whatever success we met the year prior. I, for one, puffed up my chest at the onset of 2013, and vowed to have the best year ever.
Sometimes the universe has different plans, and on March 1, I came in to work (in a very cute, second handed outfit, I might add) and was told I was being laid off, effective immediately. Jerks.
The shock has now worn off and I’m starting to kind of like this idea of unemployment. Its time to figure out what I really want to do, who I really want to be and spend time doing things that really make me happy. And, while I’m at it, those things I set out to do at the beginning of 2013.
Ever the project starter, I have decided it’s time for a new challenge. For quite some time, I’ve been meaning to sell some of my vintage pieces. They are pieces that got me all sorts of excited when purchased, but after wearing them once or twice, their life cycle ended as they were deemed too crazy, ill-fitting or just downright ugly.
These pieces were bought with intention, though, and I feel it wrong to just put them up for sale without actually paying them some homage, so before I list each item for sale, it will get one final style and a post dedicated to its life as a part of my closet.
