My Lucky CharmPosted: November 7, 2011
The fall foliage is in full effect. It’s a beautiful sight to see when you’re driving down the interstate with no real plan in mind. So, it was a tad tricky figuring out what I was going to wear since I didn’t have a set destination. After careful consideration, I wore the same sweater I wore on Saturday (what can I say–I like to maximize the amount of wears out of a single article of clothing) with a new dress and belt (oops–did I mention that I wore the same pair of leggings on Saturday, too–is that a problem?). It was actually a fairly warm day, so I was able to forgo the jacket and get by with just a sweater.
So, where did I end up going in my well-worn clothes? As I took in the view of the fall leaves, I decided to go to an antiques store. I spent a couple of hours just rummaging through the store with a specific goal in mind: I wanted to find a vintage telephone. Don’t ask me why or how I became fascinated with old phones, but within the past year, I’ve been casually searching thrift stores and the occasional flea market for one. I think my desire to have an old phone is similar to my penchant for looking for vintage jewelry (and wearing vintage clothes).
The good news is that I found both this past weekend (a reproduction of a candlestick telephone probably from the ’70s, as well as some old-ish looking jewelry). So, maybe it was a good idea to wear this sweater after all. Let’s just call it my lucky sweater.
