No Accounting for Taste

This afternoon I am sipping Earl Grey as I list more lace for sale in my etsy shop,
when I am stopped by a piece I have handled, fondled, tried on, taken off and now am considering again.

It is a tattered and stained bit of nothing that for some unexplained reason I am fascinated by.

Perhaps because I think it gives me a rakish, swashbuckling, bohemian appearance. The look that says, "I can carelessly create fashion from a tattered bit of lace because paying retail for accessories is for the unimaginative."

Then I get embarrassed that I am trying to be something I am not.
I am not a trend setter by any stretch of the imagination.
But around the back roads of Missouri, I just might be.

Go ahead, wear it Nathalie, shake up Missouri a little! Cute post! It really made me smile because I have a vintage crocheted dresser scarf tied around the neck on my dress form in my art room. I will be borrowing it to wear when the weather gets a little cooler in our parts. Great minds think alike! LOL! Xo, Sue

Silly, silly girl. YOu ARE a trendsetter.... you are just oblivious to it. Wear it. Do NOT sell it or give it away (to me).... although....if you tire of it.....

Ok here comes the lecture... (lol) Never be afraid to let your imagination run riot!! It does'nt hurt to pretend now and again, because at the end of the day you always come back to you :) it's healthy!
If you wanna be swashbuckling or bohemian for a while - JUST DO IT!!!! And have a bit of fun!!
