I hardly know how to get dressed in fall. Like I don't know when is the *right* moment to start hitting the browns and oranges. Do I wait until it gets cool consistently, can I just declare it fall for myself and pull out the boots even though others are still sporting sandals? I hardly know, so if one of your readers thinks "What is she doing! It's too early for that!" you'll just have to forgive me.
I haven't really shown the power of the button flowers yet. In part because they don't really mesh with my personal style. Is it bad to create things that you, yourself, would not wear? Well I decided to eschew both my earlier ideas of wearing in my hair or on a lapel and decided to pin a button flower onto my DIY'd skirt! I actually liked it. The boots and bag kept the edginess, but the button flower was a neat little detail that brought interest to otherwise plain pieces.
This past week I've gone into the foray that is ebaying. I sold some shoes that weren't working for me and managed to come out with 4 new pairs en route to my house - with leftover money still in my paypal to go towards my Mom's pair of winter boots. I have to say a few things to readers who have considered either buying or selling - Ebaying is great if you know how to search. I got a pair of 99p boots (plus shipping) because I searched without looking for a specific Brand. Look for those auctions just about to end with no bids and a low starting price. It can be a gamble if you have fussy/hard to fit feet, but you may also come out with some deals. The fees of selling will personally deter me from making it a habit of selling via ebay. It's a great option to get back some of your investment on something you can't otherwise use, but if you can directly sell or consign for a good price - choose that option.
