Bobby and I took a day trip to Long Island, to retrieve a bicycle roller (I don't know, either) and do some serious thrifting. I always enjoy going to Long Island, because it feels a little bit like South Florida. I'm not sure if it's the chain stores and the Boca Raton-esque moms and daughters, or that my mom's best friend lives there, and it makes me feel closer to home. Maybe a little of both.
It was really cold and I visibly shivered and did dramatic chilly dances. You know, the kind where you dance in place, rub your hands together and whine a lot. Am I the only one over five who does that?
I dressed for warmth, and this vintage cape did wonders. It's like wearing a cozy blanket. My mom got this out of a dumpster, behind a thrift shop. Should I have left that little detail out? I don't care, I love it - and my mom washed it before sending it, of course. It bugs me how this particular thrift shop throws out bags and bags of clothes. Why not take them to another charity, or a homeless shelter? My mom sometimes fishes them out and brings them to one of our favorite charities, Operation Hope. But this particular cape made its way to from Florida to New York.
The cold weather makes my skin dry and blotchy. And my lips are chapped, despite my fervent use of burt's bees and vaseline! Maybe I over-moisturize.
