An open mind and leisure time are all one needs
to get "into the zone"
it is a treasure hunt after all and you never know what you'll discover and it cannot be rushed
OOTD ~ Casual attire
I imagine that this or a variation of this will be my retirement uniform.
Gap 1969 skinny jeans
white tank "generic no name brand"
grey cashmere cardigan from Lands End
fave belt from Olsen
pearls from Rennaissance Studio, Pender Island BC
Mee Too flats

Often you'll strike it rich and find a gem...
I'd been looking online on etsy and ebay for a smaller classic hand bag for the past few weeks and nothing struck my fancy until I spied this one today....
Chester likes it!
I love the details and the quality of craftsmanship.
It's large enough to hold my wallet, keys, glasses, a lipstick and IPhone.
It's not too heavy and the size would work for evening.
I know I know
I can hear you murmuring
it's ANOTHER BLACK BAG
but it's seriously difficult for a leopard to change her spots.
I instantly recognized the logo inside the bag...
after a quick tootle around google
I discovered this bag is circa 2008 and is called The Robson,
sold for just under $200 when new.

not a bad size for a bag for the Hostess
and the price was right!
I am getting used to the new cut...
it dries in a flash and just needs some mousse to help the curls stay in place.
What fun things have you been up to?
My daughter has been scoring some great mid century pieces in her travels.
I'm looking forward to spending some time with that darling of all grand daughters
the lovely Miss Isla and her fabulous parents.
and mind your manners
they speak volumes about the kind of person you are.
