Hello Blogland!!!! Everyone having a relatively good start to their week??? The Diva would like to thank all of her fans who made such lovely comments!! She sends out her doggy love to you all!!!
I haven’t been in the mall since I can’t remember. I was given a gift certificate by my mom to Boscov’s because she wanted me to buy something NEW to wear. As opposed to new-to-me!!! So last week I decided I would put it to good use and pick up some tights and socks. Unfortunately, those items were totally picked over and there was nothing I wanted. Since I was already in the store I figured might as well peruse the sale racks because I really didn’t want to make a trip back. The mall gives me the jeebies!!
I found the dank corner where they hid the plus sized stuff. WOW was I in for sticker shock. The stuff was EXPENSIVE!!! And Boscov’s is on par for Macy’s, etc., not Lord & Taylor. There was a sea of Alfred Dunner stuff (UGH) and other brands and styles I would NEVER consider. I found the clearance racks hoping MAYBE I’d find something wearable. I was thrilled when I found a black crinkle pleated maxi skirt marked down from $68 (really???) to $13.99 and a cashmere-like pullover sweater marked down from $44 to $11.99. I only had to put out a couple of dollars cash with my gift certificate. These will be nice basic pieces to mix-in with the rest of my wardrobe.
Today I kind of threw stuff on. Had a miserable headache and the hubster is sick (flu I think). I was going to be on a job-site taking measurements and sketching for a new remodel design so I needed to be comfortable. I managed to drop my sharpie on my boob so I sported a nice black tit-stripe the rest of the day! I’m going to start noting what percentage of outfits are thrifted – doesn’t include undies or socks which I don’t thrift.
I’ve really been in a creative mood!!! I’ve started a series involving old advertising, music, etc. with cut-out fashion models. I have this clip-art of styles from 1900-2000. It came with booklets showing each style. I’ve been cutting them out and using them as a focal point layer. I’ll then embellish and alter them.
Well–must go attend to the invalid. He wants soup. Aren’t some men the biggest babies when they are sick??? I’m one of those crawl in a hole and leave me alone kind of sick people myself!!
Have a great evening and see ya’ll later this week!!
