|Dress: Vintage, Thrifted; Shoes: Leather Thrifted; Belt: Nine & Co. Thrifted|
Seems I just can't pass up a great black dress! I thrifted this one a couple of weeks ago. It's hand made and has a vintage label stating the name of the seamstress. My plan, at first, was to sell it; but when I got home and tried it on, I just couldn't let it go. I think is probably the beginning of a lasting relationship!
The fit. The shimmering fabric. The drapey style. It has all the elements I love! I'm thinking I can also wear it as a duster as well!
I hope all is going well with all my friends! While I haven't been blogging much, I've definitely been creeping around all of your blogs. Please forgive me if I don't leave a comment. I'm hit and miss; but love keeping up with all of you! Big hugs all around!
Oh! And by the way, I gave up Facebook for Lent and I'm embarrassed at how hooked I've been to that form of social media! I sometimes feel TOO much of an online presence and feel a bit of a need to take it down a few notches. It's so easy to get immersed in the cyber reality. I mean, let's face it. Cyberly speaking, most everyone is nice, complimentary, and gives thumbs up! What's not to love? But I want to carry the best of what I get on social media into my real life. "Like" people in person. "Comment" to the person sitting next to me. Be interested in the people that are in my life daily. Between blogging, eBay, Facebook, Facebook for The Elegant Bohemian, Pinterest, Twitter, Google+, Instagram and email; I can tell I lose sight of those people in my life that are most important to me. I just want "online personality" to be at the end of the list of things that are Serene; NOT at the top of it!
