a gift that was appreciated well after her passing. my great grandmother knitted this sweater vest for me when i was six (yes 6 years old). at the time i thought i was too cool for sweater vests, so i decided to play dress up with one of my teddy bears, and on him it remained for over a decade. a few years ago, i cleaned out my room and realized what a cute "crop top" it would make.
vintage trousers, vintage laredo boots, vintage backpack, ruehl shirt (from 8th grade, don't know if the store still exists..)
many of my friends tell me "my goodness, how many clothes do you have?!" but honestly, if anyone accumulated their belongings over a lifetime they would have a pretty impressive collection too. i have a problem of not wanting to get rid of anything. my brother tells me i'm a perfect candidate for the tlc show 'buried alive'...
on a completely unrelated note:
a few months ago my brother introduced me to what fast became my favorite song of the month. and the one after. and after. her name is Andra, and her song "fall too slow" was featured in the yellow pages ad shown below
didn't i tell you you would love her? my brother was the first person in the US to order her CDs and now she has orders in 40 states! please support this amazing artist, and check out her music here
