It first began with a teal corduroy skirt made by Lands' End. I really liked the black one I had and thought I'd try to see if it existed in another color. It did, in teal. I bought it for less than ten dollars.
I like to wear vests. I find they're the perfect garment for the transitional weather in spring and fall. They also express my personality. It may not surprise you that I don't look for traditional, one color vests. Unusual vests are not easy to find in the local stores.
I think the vest below was one of my first Ebay purchases. The photo is from a current listing on Etsy. The funny thing is that the design on the vest is the same design on a sheet of gift wrap that I bought in the 1970s. I still have it. I think the company must have been Gordon Fraser. A friend suggested that I hang the paper on the wall as an art object. If I could afford a method to protect it as well I would.
Recently I bought the vest below because I realized that most of my fabric vests didn't fit any longer and I needed one. The colors were so pretty I had to buy it.
Last week I was thinking that I wanted a vest that didn't cats on it but was colorful. I didn't find anything online. Then I had a wait a minute moment and realized I had been looking at the perfect one for the past couple of months without buying it, so I sat down and did! It is so beautiful I don't know why someone else didn't buy it.
I think it may be time for me to go into my closet to find the vests that I no longer wear and make them available to other people.
