Fallen Through The CracksPosted: January 22, 2016
I wasn’t going to post today, but as I looked through my photo folders, I found an outfit I haven’t posted yet. Surprise! To be honest, my brain was fried to a crisp after this crazy week, so the oversight is understandable.
Anyway, this outfit is quite appropriate because it fits the theme of Bri’s Third Thursday Thread link-up – Most Cherished Item (I’m a day late, but that’s OK – see “crazy week” above). For me there are actually two “cherished items” in this outfit. One is the tweed jacket I got from my mom – I’d been looking for a tweed blazer for a long time but could never find one, so when I found this in my mom’s old stuff, I had to ask her for it. The fit is a little boxier than I wanted, but I’ve come to love it.
The other item is this brooch. Actually I cherish all of my brooches, but this one is a little more special because it’s a gift from an actress in a short film I worked on. She’s really, really nice – one day I just mentioned randomly that I collected brooches, and the next day she showed up on set with this! It’s also a little different from what I usually wear (I tend to go for the enameled flowers/cameo type of brooches), but for the slightly equestrian feel of this outfit, it’s the perfect finishing touch.
