Back From Seattle!

I have been back for a week now but have been busy running around taking photos so haven't made a proper post in ages. I will remedy that soon, I promise!

I bought the Fall Vogue with all the ads for new clothing/accessories and am loving about half of it. I will definitely get inspired by it and am in love with a new handbag by Michael Kors I cannot find anywhere even to find out the price of it. I just know it is to be expensive but I want to know the price. Silly but true. If I find a photo of it online I will definitely post about it here.

I am HATING the crappy 80s trendy stuff that is so popular now. The crappy eyewear/sunglasses you could buy in gas stations for a buck just 6 months ago, the stirrup pants, the shiny leggings (which are unflattering on overweight women so, of course, overweight women LOVE them), the neon colours, the tracky belts, the plastic jewelry, ect. I will be glad when the trend of 80s wear dies hard! It was crap the first time around and remains crap.

On the other hand I like the 70s stuff that is mixed in with the 80s junk. The ethnic inspired jewelry and shirts/tunics, the wedge boots and sandals, the flare jeans, ruffled shirts, ect. They have more class to them in styling and would last more than a season if you don't go for the items that scream "trendy" when you buy the look.

I would add photos but I am not using my own computer. I will try and post another post tonight, with visual aids, of some things that have wowed me recently or maybe some of the stuff that I think should be junked right away.

Watch this space.
