the chilly weather is finally here! i was so excited, this saturday, to wear my new winter coat! the fabric/lining is not too thick, so it's perfect for fall (but also great for winter to layer with!). i had a lovely afternoon of vintage shopping, coffee drinking, walking around, and costume hunting. i had a lazy morning; read some of the beautiful and the damned in bed, drink coffee & read my blogs, and went through the clothing i am going to sell on etsy. after finally gaining the effort to get out of my comfy clothes and out of my loft, i headed to the west bottoms with a friend and explored a vintage warehouse and the area. we later got coffee at yjs (one of my favorite spots for food or a drink) and i sipped on a soy latte.
i am going to see a few bands play tonight at a place close to my loft, and it is costume-themed! i went to a halloween costume store today in search of something to go along with ideas i had for a costume. i found a magnify glass lucky, which is perfect for my fashion icon/inspiration, nancy drew! i am so excited to dress up like her this evening (which i already do all the time, this time will just be overboard!). now i am obsessing over images of her and deciding exactly how i plan to dress. i wish costume get togethers were all year round.
now i'm curious! readers, what are your favorite fiction characters that you get inspiration from? (fashion, life, anything!)
