News of the day

 Yep. I'm a boho wannabe. And you know what? It's the easiest bag I've had to carry in a long time.

I have a few things to say. First, I have convictions. And I have been so afraid of offending folks that I have not said anything. On Pinterest I am finally saying it. I believe in the right of woman to control her body and her destiny. If in a marriage or other relationship, she has the right to come to a decision with her partner and live by it. I am so glad there is no one to tell me how to feel about this.

I think I like me better with makeup. My honey says it doesn't matter to him but it makes me feel better. Yeah, that's it.

Fall is coming. I'm disappointed by the new editions of Vogue and Bazaar. Or should I not read them if I'm truly boho? Anyway, the predominant colors are black, gray, brown, and more black. How totally depressing. And how much better I felt when I went to . They had the whole shows from each designer and there was plenty of color to be had. Often the magazines are like eye candy to me. I don't expect to see the clothes here in my area. But there are some connections such as shapes, proportions, etc that translate. Not this time. Maybe my eyes are getting bad but the pics were so dark it was hard to see the clothes.
It's not that I don't like black. I wear it. And so does my furdaughter. As you can see, she wears it well. But all black and gray for a whole season. No.

I have been enjoying blogs but I am having a problem relating in some instances. I see the young women wearing shoes that would send me tumbling if I even stood up in them. I see scarves that would make me sweaty in the winter. I see tight jeans. I hate anything that is confining. I see lots of stripes and polka dots. Now that I could get into. If I could find them in my sizes. You see, I'm one size on top and another on the bottom. They call my shape apple. That must mean waistless. No belt then. But on the good side, I love flats and there are many out there. I love jewelry. It has become very reasonable with the help of ebay. And I love color, no ironing, and pants. All available with the latest fabrics.

At one point I bought a bunch of fabric intending to sew. I still have it and the so super repurposing blogs and giving me the impetus to start. I also signed up for a crochet class to be held in Sept. Now that it is starting to cool down, I'm going to be out more. More trips to the mall. I love to people watch.

I have had some ups and downs about the diabetes. It's hard to know what makes the blood sugar go up. Sometimes the same thing eaten 2 different times will have wildly different readings. I wonder if I'm missing something. But I'll keep at it. I'll figure it out someday.

I saw the Hunger Games movie the other day. So I bought books 2 and 3. I must have liked the movie. I do like to read. I think I'll go do that now.

Love your new haircut and color. That boho bag is great too. I used to dress more boho...then tried get a bit more classic in style. I think I'm actually pretty much all over the place with my style. haha But that's okay. I have different moods and that sometimes dictates my style of the day.
Hope you have a great week. Thanks for stopping by my blog. :)

The bag is great!

My style is whatever is on sale or whatever I can find at the thrift store. I love scarves but they make me HOT and cranky. Only in the winter and I usually end up ripping them off. Pashimas are nice if I am too hot to wear a coat and I love how flowy they are.

I agree that women should feel comfortable with themselves -- if I hear your right; not doing things just to please everyone else!

Get that fabric stash out and sew! I need to do the same thing. Where does the time go?

Lisa - respect the shoes said...

I would love to learn to sew - even just enough to do my own hemming. But I've been saying that for years and I've obviously too lazy to do anything about it - but I do admire those creative ladies who can!
