I still remember the day when my mom and I were thrift shopping at the Goodwill. It was a couple of years ago, and she picked out this wonderful red dress for me. She was so cute like that. And she nailed it because I had been longing for a plaid dress or even a skirt for a very long time. It is is one of my favorites, even though I feel pudgy in it these days and the pattern on the fabric tends to get a little distorted around the belly area. But whatever…it brings me a sweet memory that hugs my heart.
The Goodwill will always be a bittersweet place for me. Sometimes I go there just to wander. Last week I was fortunate enough to find a cute pair of Steve Madden espadrille wedges, brand new. Thanks mom, for sending me a little fashion sign! Those will definitely make a cameo in an upcoming post.
