Can I just skip over the whole "New Year" goals and intentions part? 'Coz honestly, nothing has changed. I have the same goals, same intentions, same aspirations. Dec. 31st and Jan 1st just kinda-blended together and I feel no different what-so-ever. Although I do have one specific goal I want to achieve. This.
I just want to quickly jump over to the outfit, because I am IN LOVE - with this jacket. Is that possible? I saw it and I bought it. I am not an impulse shopper. But since I always shop with a purpose, I almost instantly know when I MUST have something. This was not a purchase of "need". It was a purchase of "want", a purchase of "unique investment piece". The bonus is that the work is in velvet, which is in season, but this is not as overwhelming to wear as an all-out-velvet. Also, even when velvet goes out of fashion, this would still remain a treasured acquisition!
Oh, but I forgot to mention where I bough it - in Istanbul, Turkey upon our recent visit. What a fabulous city. I am so sorry about what is happening there right now.
