So, how did the weekend start? Mine started with some awesome shopping - two really cute purses and a coat. Yippie!! As eager as I was to share their pictures with you all, I couldn't take any today as I got home too late. So watch out for the next post...
Meanwhile, I have been reading a lot, and I really mean a LOT (another privilege that comes with being jobless). A major share of my reading material is history and I am so obsessed with it that I told my husband a few days back that I want to be an archaeologist. Of course he didn't take it seriously 'cause I say such stuff every month. You know, like while reading a science book, I want to be a scientist and as soon as I read a book on economics, well, economist I should be. So basically, I still am that fifth grade kid who wants to be everything. Not too bad, don't you think? I am also currently reading a book about ancient fashion from various parts of the world and I am so glad that at least I am closer to my fashion dreams, thanks to this blog and thanks to all of you who bear with it (yes...I am grinning at the screen)!
Talking about reading, I also read somewhere that a lot of women are tired of flared jeans and their skinny counterparts. Ditto for high heels and elvish pointy pumps. I can absolutely understand what they mean. Although I absolutely love my skyscrapers and skinny pants, I feel that comfort clothing should be encouraged more. If I want to, I should be able to wear loafers or sneakers to a cocktail party without being called lazy. Actually, in Portland you CAN do that, even in the fanciest restaurant, and that is why I love this city.
Last week, we had brunch at a lovely place called Jam and I went in my sweats. Best idea ever because I felt free to gorge on heaps of eggs and potatoes without worrying about any pant buttons popping! Here are some pictures of the outfit, I hope you like them.
