He has a valid point. So I started thinking. Tipsy thinking, but thinking nonetheless. And I came up with a few options:
- I could start an online vintage store, allowing me to continue the unbelievably satisfying work of combing through well-loved clothing of day's gone by. (Any of the vintage buyers out there will know exactly the satisfaction of which I speak...) The challenge with this option is that I have a young child and a full-time job and occasionally I like to exercise or read or blog, for example.
- I could start styling other people / personal shopping - and not just for people I know.
Personal shopping, you may recall, is an addictive hobby. Some people even make it into a lucrative business. I just want a malleable fashion-lover with holes in her wardrobe looking for someone to help get her where she wants to go.
So here's my call to arms. If you are a woman who would like to enjoy a truly fun shopping experience with another woman who knows quite a bit about where to find cool things in Toronto, please email me and let me know. I ask only that you shop with an open mind, some idea of what you really need / can't live without, and a pre-determined budget. I can offer you a Saturday afternoon and my best advice (I tell it like it is, though politely) and it won't cost you a penny - other than the price of the great things you find that you cannot resist purchasing. Now those are gonna cost you and I am going to get to live vicariously!
PS: Moderation week is done. I'm back to buying cool stuff and trying it on in fun ways and taking pictures which I will post up on the blog this week. Having said that, I've been purchasing vintage so the price point is outrageously reasonable and the loot deliciously unique.
