I wore this blouse like 4 posts ago or something, but I don’t even care. I wasn’t even going to take pictures today, but then I thought, “Oh why not just be honest?”
And anyway, we don’t even have to talk about it. We can talk about other things. Like how a while back, Kelly reviewed an eyeliner called “Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner” and I thought to myself “Ok, self, we are going to try that.” And I did. And it WORKED. Which is remarkable. Because I have never had any luck with eyeliner. It ends up in my crease and about halfway down my greasy little face by 10 AM. But this stuff really works. I have nicely smudged pretty black eyeliner straight through when I wash my face. And to be honest, the next day. Because I don’t bother to use remover. I find the leftover bit means I have to smudge less. So take my word for it, if Kelly says it works, it WORKS.
Or else we can talk about how these pants are about 2 inches too big in the waist and I foolishly, FOOLISHLY went without a belt all day. I tugged my pants up all day long like a high school girl tugging her strapless dress at a dance. It was not awesome. But my eyeliner was!
OR we can talk about how REALLY, I should have washed my hair today, but instead I just dry shampooed it and then relied on my Spin Pins. Those things came in handy during the trips to Houston and Arkansas. I mean, I am not going to be bothered to try and straighten my hair in that kind of humidity. OK, maybe I did try once, but I learned quick.
Or we can talk about that vintage Coach there. My mom originally Ebay-ed it for herself, but then she didn’t get along with it. She has to have an organizer purse or things get ugly. Then she gave it to my sister-in-law Miranda who DID get along with it. And then it was passed down to me. I like that it reminds me of both Miranda and my mother. I like that we have all three carried it. And I like that it gets used. Because vintage things should be used until they can’t. Am I right? They should be cared for, but they should be used.
