The first sign of morning, he feels me reaching for my phone and automatically wraps his arms around to pull me closer (he wants me off the phone). After a little morning cuddling ;), we take showers, which may or may not be taken together. We shout out a few “should I wear this with this?”, “Honey, have you seen my earrings?”, ”Where’s my jacket?”, and sometimes a “are you really going to wear that?”
His music is blasting from the office (most likely, it’s some sort of rap/hip hop or R&B). I play my music in the bathroom (usually 90’s R&B and pop) but as of late, OBVI its Beyoncé’s new album. I’m obsessed! I can’t get enough! I want to emulate her every move in those videos. I’ll make it my work out session; kill two birds with one stone. Get healthier, AND learn some new sexy moves for my man. Sounds like a win-win to me (it’s always good to switch things up, ladies). Finally, we choose our scents and accessories and we are on our way. A typical Sunday will go a little something like this… breakfast, a stroll through the flea market, and maybe a trip to Target or the mall. We end the day with dinner and a movie, and there ya’ have it, our Sunday routine.
This smoking jacket is one of many wonderful finds I’ve encountered through thrifting. “It’s prit-eey fah-in amazin!” (That’s my English accent, just incase you were wondering).
BUT, get this; the velvet top (also thrifted), is a size L tank-dress in regular sizing. As you can see, it’s a form fitting top on me. After a couple years of sitting in my closet, I decided to wear it with pants from Forever 21. The polka dots on the pants are a similar texture as the velvet top; it was only natural to pair the two.
Moral of the story, thrifting is the bomb; there is quite a bit of unique treasures out there, waiting to be discovered. Be sure to try on as mush as possible, you’ll be surprised what will fit. And, don’t forget to speak in an English accent; it makes the experience more amusing 😉
