I'm not sure if this sweater really counts as vintage, my mum got it in the early eighties. Vintage or not though, I love it. I found it in her closet almost a year ago now, when I was in the middle of my eighties obsession, and have been trying to figure out how to wear it ever since. I say it in the back of my closet yesterday evening, and I knew I had to wear it. I decided to play it safe with the rest of the outfit, since it is a bit of a statement piece.
Then I realized that my mother was considerably larger and wider in the shoulder than I am, even when she was younger. The shapless-ness was soon cured with this belt, and the wide shoulders actually made my waist look quite narrow.
Daddy picked me up after school today, because he needed a computer mouse, so we went to Staples. I love Staples. Actually, I'm pretty happy to be left wandering any where, from stationary stores to gardening/home repair stores to random farms. ANYWAYS, while he was checking out the mice, I wandered over the the camera isle. I spent a while admiring a Canon EOS Digital Rebel, then turned my attention to the limited selection of camera accessories, which are more in my price range. And what should I find, all lonely at the back, but a Gorillapod. I have been keeping my eyes out for one for about six months, so I immediately picked up the case. And realized that it was awfully small compared to my Canon Powershot A590 IS. I happened on a sweet young salesman though, who let me take it out of the package to try it out.
I'm so glad he did, because I absolutely adore it! Small enough to fit in my purse (which doubles as my camera bag), it is remarkable sturdy and versatile. I can't wait to try it out more!
