Many, many weeks ago, when it was still cold and miserable here in Oslo, this sunburst of a dress hang all by itself on a rack at H&M and called out my name. It turned out that the dress was an online exclusive purchase that somebody had returned that day. One woman’s trash, another woman’s treasure.
And what a treasure! Whenever I wear the dress, I feel young, carefree and fun. You can say that the dress brings out the younger side of me that doesn’t worry about work, money and bills. Come to think of it, I should make a point of wearing this dress every single day of the week and I’d probably be a much happier person with less wrinkles and grey hair!
Unfortunately, there’s a lot of worrying going on in my life a the moment. I have some important issues that I need to sort out which I can’t and won’t bore you with, and while I’m doing my sorting and rearranging, my blog will suffer: Posts might be up in the afternoon or evening as opposed to the morning, that trend report might not be ready on the day I promised it would, etc.
While I hate to break a promise, I’ve also got to take care of the more urgent matters that ensure that I have a roof over my head and food on my plate. This blog, my fashion baby, is just a hobby, after all. Admittedly, it’s a hobby that I love and that I wouldn’t want to live without, especially when I read your encouraging comments to my posts, but unfortunately blogging doesn’t bring me any income.
So please bear with me and my somewhat erratic blogging behaviour for a while while I sort out my issues and you will be handsomely rewared with lots of great posts sometime in the future — I have been playing with the idea of adding a couple of new series to the blog, but I just don’t have the resources to get started at the moment. But one day. One day…while wearing my yellow sundress.
Have a wonderful Wednesday, dear!
