Please forgive my thrown-together-going-to-the-market ensemble.
I am definitely not sold on this outfit but have been dying to wear this newly op shopped 70's skirt with its gorgeous colours, but with its slightly too big waist and my laziness to put a few darts in, it has languished on my sewing pile. (I like to call the sewing pile the "mountain of misery"!)
I also haven't found just the right shade of pink top to pair it with (I know, I know, but these are the things that keep me up at night!)
But I threw caution to the wind, threw on the skirt anyway for a spot of treasure hunting at the local market.
And after scoring some vintage purple gloves for $3 (I am aiming to own a pair of gloves in every shade!), I encountered the phenomena I have spoken about on this blog before.
Colour attracting colour.
It just keeps happening to me!
I discovered a lovely stall with a girl clearing out some vintage bits and bobs (alas, all the clothing was waaaayy too small for this curvy lass!) and lo and behold, two stunning vintage head pieces in the exact shades I was wearing. Fate! Perfect match! Meant to be!
Aren't they just divine? And do you see how beautifully the colours marry?
Does the universe do this "colour attracting colour" thing with anyone else?
Go on, wrack your brain and try to remember if, whilst out thrifting/op shopping/marketing, the clothes you are wearing determines the goodies that you find. Hmmmmm?
Now, it is definitely not an isolated incident. Two weeks ago I was all decorated with red accessories, when my hand magically stopped rifling through the clothes rack at the Salvo's, to alight upon one of the most stunning, the most bargainous red Stop Staring dress that ever was.
I think it was one of my proudest moments when I swapped my $13 for that beauty and then found it on line for almost $200. On sale!
Isn't she amazing? I can't wait to wear her but feel she deserves a special night out (and she also needs some bloody good underwear to keep my curves under control!).
Please tell me if you have experienced these powers of colour attraction, or break it to me gently if I may just be imagining it!
PS - A big thank you to Sacramento for your lovely shout out!
