Remember when I started the FIMTSO series
I referenced Imelda Marcos? Not that I find kinship in this former First Lady’s shopaholic ways but sometimes I can totally relate to why she’d buy multiples of certain things. In my case, I won’t (anymore) buy a full rainbow of one style of shoes because I like primary colors, but I would
collect various colors of something that fits/travels well or stock up on a specific staple item (like a well fitting pair of jeans) that might be phased out by the label for other styles that won’t fit when I need to replace it. I’m merely thinking ahead, and isn’t preparedness a rationalization for every woman who likes to shop?!
Ok, ok, maybe I do like rainbows! But in my defense, these cardigans have been wonderful travel companions for sweater weather. This short trip was all about black, though, so this one made the cut:
The road thus far has not brought me any closer to finding the travel bag for my upcoming big trip, though this morning I woke up thinking I should go check out the wallet-on-a-chain bags since they’re small enough to hide under coats/jackets in crowded places and won’t get heavy on long days. And they’re great for going to dinner. But what do I do with maps or souvenirs or sketchbooks? Hopefully I can steal a few hours in the next couple of days to try on a few ideas at the store. Because this little fellow that I did manage to score on this trip is definitely NOT one for the road…
