secondskin 's Thoughts:

So do you guys know that Phoenix song “If I ever feel better” It goes “If I ever feel better, remind me to spend some good time with you. You can give me your number, when its all over I’ll let you know.” Oh I freaking LOVE Phoenix so much and guess what!! I am feeling better! Good nights sleep! Sudafed day time! I am worlds away from yesterday! So today I took my boy on a date to Starbucks. We have all been home (For SO long it seems) and scratching each others eyes out with cabin fever, so we decided to get dresses up and go eat some scones. Its amazing what sugar and the smiling baristas can do for moral.

I am always very excited to wear this jacket. I have to be very careful with it because it is part of a suit set with a matching pencil skirt. I think its from the 60’s and I found it with another little cream crocheted suit set. I expect that they were from the same donor, similar style, size, era and shape, and that they were her Sunday Best, church suits. They have been so well cared for and I feel that as their new owner I must be a very careful custodian to them. You know, out of respect for the little lady who passed them on to me. I like how you can almost sense the character of the former resident in certain pieces.

love your hat! And I was wondering: don't you ever feel creeped out by the fact that someone else owned those vintage clothes? Who knows what kind of bitch that might have been :-D

Ha ha! I mean, I guess they may have been a bitch but karmatically maybe they have been forgiven since there stuff went to a charity shop. I guess I could see how we can be creeped out by vintage stuff since most of the time the person who owned it is probably dead. I just think that if they kept these things in their closets SO long, they must have meant something to them while they were livin
