Since Covid-19 started, I have been wearing the same as everyone else – leggings and a t-shirt. Actually, that is not entirely true. Most of the time I have been wearing a nightdress… I am a thrifty shopper and love a root around at Goodwill or charity shops but they are not suited for social distancing. When I cleared out my closet in spring, Goodwill benefited. Humans get an endorphin shot when we buy something, even a lipstick. Perhaps it goes back to early human foraging? I have been window shopping on the internet for months without buying anything but then I found this online site Rockflowerpaper (They didn’t financially compensate me other than offering me a bargain!)
Most of their tops start at $50 and up but their clearance items were a real bargain, ranging between $4-7. I decided I could risk $26.45 for four final sale tunics including shipping. They arrived really quickly in the mailbox and I had a visceral thrill when I saw the package. All four were sized small but one said that it ran a little neat so I was forewarned. That one was gifted to my slimmer friend. They were all different fabrics and styles. The red and orange pin tucked tunic is my favorite but the blue and cream tunic is incredibly soft. The gauzy pink and orange tunic suits me the best but it isn’t as soft as the other two. All in all, however, I was delighted and Rockflowerpaper is a woman owned enterprise in San Francisco. I liked the hippy, boho vibe from my birth city.
It was so much fun to create a fashion post after such a long time and you might notice that my hair has been ‘fixed’. I put my tail between my legs and went to my other hairdresser for a revision. Putting make up on felt weird too but I loved having bright lipstick on and SMILING! My model mother is alive and well both in face and poses…😁
