A complete stranger stopped me in a Starbucks the other day to tell me that she thought I was "Super Cute". Since things like this don't happen to me often or ever, I decided that this gave me the right to have a fat head for the rest of the day. Then it happened again. I have discovered this nifty tool called Polyvore, which is sort of an online closet. You sign yourself up for an account and then add virtual clothes to "your items" and then you can put together outfits on pages. Most people use this to dream up great outfits that they could never afford, but I have been using it load up actual things that I own as a place to keep track of what's in my closet. Somehow my clothes look so much better on paper than they do when I'm trying to get dressed in the morning. At any rate, I have started pinning my "outfits" on a page on Pinterest (because I pin everything these days) and it makes it so much easier to find. I have actually whipped open my laptop before getting dressed and said to myself, "Yeah, that one looks good" and then go source the items in the closet. Here are two outfits that I have pinned:
Moleskine sketchbooks, particularly the watercolor ones. Nothing runs, nothing bleeds through and the paper isn't even very wrinkly once the water dries. I could use both sides of the paper, but so far I can't bring myself to do that; in case I want to use one of the sketches for something, I really don't want another sketch on the other side.
