You know that moment when you get an idea that you’d really like to do something and you say to yourself, “I’d really like to ________. Maybe this weekend?” And then the weekend rolls by and you end up sitting on the couch and binging on Orange is the New Black instead.
I confess, I know this moment all too well except I still haven’t gotten ’round to watching the latest season of Orange is the New Black, either! I blame it on what I’ll call, “small business brain.” I still find it kind of hard to completely switch off from running my shop, so if I’m not working, I’m thinking about work. Just last night I said to myself, I’m not going to upload photos for this outfit post tonight. If I do, I’ll end up working on this post—and that’s exactly what ended up happening!
Anyway, I’ve digressed a bit here from the point I wanted to talk about today. What I was saying is, for a while now I said to myself, “I’d really like to go see that mural I’ve been passing by week after week.” I first noticed it months ago. Even though at the time all I got was a quick glance at it in the car, that’s all I really needed to notice it. In my little area of Queens, there really isn’t a lot of street art around—very few, if any, I should say.
It’s pretty cool, isn’t it? I’m not at all familiar with the street art scene, but I love that it’s there and at a place where it’s completely unexpected. Okay, I’m going to do something really cheesy now and tie this in with what I do, but I can’t resist because it’s really the perfect analogy. Basically, vintage is the unexpected awesomeness when you mix it in with your contemporary wardrobe…boom, you really can’t get more coincidental than that!
