Prisoner of History

Oh hi. It's me again, here with my next post of the week, which is my last post before tomorrow's Rewind post. I have a fun summer outfit lined up for tomorrow, so make sure to check back in order to fill yourself with nostalgic memories of bare legs and sun kissed skin. It seems that we are somewhere between Summer and Winter here in Eastern Canada, as all it has done this Christmas is raiiiiin. I'm not really in the Christmas spirit to say the least, though, after the hoards of wrapping I have to do tonight, I may be. 

Here is an array of thrifted items. I picked up this strange little blazer, blouse, and set of earrings one summer day, threw them in the corner of my dressing room (as per usual), and found them again months later while rifling through bags. I decided that they matched perfectly, though maybe a bit too perfectly for my taste. As I usually do, I have only worn these items once. I'm so strange about clothes. I have some pieces that become like an appendage to me, where there are others that are just one time passer byers. I am so into consignment for this reason - so that I can re-use & recycle! 

If you read my twitter, you know that I'm home for the holidays. This vacation has consisted of the following: eat. sleep. read. I really needed a vacation, and I feel as though the small break will help quiet my mind. I work a lot. Okay, wait, let's italicize that - I work a lot. It was so very welcomed for me to slow down, get away, and take a few days to  just sit in this big beautiful room outfitted with a real, 12 foot, Christmas tree and white mantled fireplace, where I have surrounded myself with books and fashion mags. Though during vacation I can't keep track of the days, I have just checked the calender in order to wish you a truly lovely Thursday.
