Long vintage turquoise wool coat for Auer’s-estate sale, vintage turquoise/fuschia/black velvet cone hat and vintage fuschia gloves-estate sales, patent leather boots and belt-yard sales.
Today Nelson and The Style Crone decided to spend two days at the end of this week at the historic Broadmoor, a luxury hotel about an hour from home. As I drove to yoga this morning I attempted to identify and name the feeling that I was experiencing. And then it came to me. I was elated! Elated that we’re going to have an adventure! Elated that we’re going to have a new experience! A new experience totally unrelated to medical treatment! Tomorrow I will choose the gowns for dinner. After all, the gowns haven’t had an outing for quite some time.
In the meantime, I seem to be ‘hooked on turquoise.’ This coat has an Auer’s label, a high end women’s specialty store which closed years ago. The coat is too big for me and I feel swallowed by its vivid 80’s abundance. I wrapped the coat around me and held it in place with a wide patent leather belt. Now that I’ve documented its bold intensity, I feel that I can release it. My desire to downsize is becoming more pronounced.
