Vintage Means, To Learn To Say Goodbye



this is what i wore to the office last week ... cardi: collectif // 50s cotton dress: ebay // belt: from my mum // early 60s shoes: thrifted // wicker bag: flea market ... when i left the office i sadly noticed that the right shoe was broken ... actually i just bought them a few months ago ... but somethimes it is like that if you buy something vintage - you have to learn to say goodbye.

it would be so easy, if there were just things in life to loose ... just the last few days i broke a cute 50s plastic brooch, i ripped a jag in my new old 50s fashion magazine, found a hole in a lovely vintage dress and almost lost a sole of a super comfortable and chic shoe ... in a normal situation of life i would go crazy about things like that happning to me ...
but these days i'm getting prepared to say goodbye to one of the most beloved poeple in my little world ... and suddenly i don't remember how it feels to be sad about the loss of a broken brooch or shoe ... 

actually this post was already finished, just waiting to get posted ... but then i heard about my granny was sent to the hospital with cancer past thursday ... and suddenly the whining about shoes felt super silly. ( ... but for sure this feeling will come back some sunny day ... )

hey, spend as much time as you can with the poeple you love  ... life is short.

All my love to you and your Granny. Life is so short - and often we spend so much time worrying about the little things (that feel like big things!)that we lose perspective until something truly big hits us. Love your Granny while you can and create some great memories to treasure. XXX

Also, sorry to hear about your gran! I hope she lived a long beautiful life. I just lost someone too, the little brother of one of my best friends, who was like a brother to me. Couldn't agree more: spend as much time with those you love. Take care!
