well i did go shopping for 4 hours yesterday, a complete indulgence but that’s what i’m into i guess. the garment district is yet another of my favorite things about this city and one of the main reasons for my addiction to it. (it’s from 38-40th streets between 7th and 8 aves…get there if you love textiles)!
more and more places are moving out i guess cause of the rent and the neighborhood is changing. it’s sad but the bargains are abundant. i would shop there everyday if i could and stimulate that economy!
but god! it’s so much easier to shop for someone else than yourself. there are infinite choices and directions to go. i decided to take cue from Tricia Guild’s world and go for CoLoR some blue, like an aqua the one from a couple posts ago…not tiffany’s but something a bit more gray. well it was a quest, i did find one linen with embroidery that was perfect. but then i wasn’t sure about the embroidery…great deal tho!
There are so many silly and gorgeous fabrics out there it’s absloutely overwhelming. I am going back tomorrow to choose some things and decided to make 3 different sets and we can all decide!
i could go on!
oh yeah, my vow is to take my own advice and do something however minor, everyday to make my place better. as of tonight i didn’t do anything today. but then i didn’t know i would be making a vow…so it will be a vow that starts tomorrow!
