Thanks for the hug

It's always a tricky decision when I write something a bit more personal on the blog, and I just wanted to say thank you, so much to all of you who commented on my last post.

Your kind words really touched me, and many of you offered me a lot of advice that I know I truly need to take.

I am continually astounded by the wonderful community I've found myself in since I started this blog, and that alone makes doing this worth it.

Thank you all
camel blazer
And I totally bought that stuff from Old Navy.
Some other stuff too. Like this camel blazer, which was $20, secondhand from Coco's on the Green. I think it's vintage since it has a union tag, but I honestly don't know that much about vintage - just what I read on the internet.
Still, it's a gorgeous jacket, and a camel blazer is something that has been on my list of basics I've been wanting to acquire.

I can't really say that my other purchases over the weekend were quite as justified as the blazer -- like the earrings I'm wearing; I bought them thinking I'd give them to a friend for her birthday, but then realized they weren't really her taste...

I also picked up a pair of Adrienne Vittadini black pumps because I had a wedding over the weekend and "no" shoes to wear - $20 on clearance at TJMaxx!
And maybe I bought some other things too... but we can discuss my horrible binge shopping habits later...

  1. you look great my dear...glad you feel better...and loving those booties

  2. lovely blog! i truly enjoy reading it!

  3. I'm so glad you're feeling better Lyddie =) you look great, love the picture with the remote control, my camera does not have a thing for wireless control, unfortunately, I checked the shoes you bought and you made a wise choice, although the other pair was cute too. Last week I went on a shopping binge myself, hope I love those things once they arrive on the mail. Blazer is definitely a basic, you can wear it in many ways and I bet it's going to be one must thing to buy for Fall. Love your coach bag, it's been a couple of months since I've seen those at the thrift stores, before I use to see them all the time, now the are very hard to find.

  4. The blazer was an amazing find! Holy moly beautiful color :)

    PS. A shopping addiction is only harmful to the wallet. So in my books, that's not the worst thing to be addicted to.

  10. I love blazers so so much...and that's a great one!

  11. Oh the blazer is such a great colour! Love it :)

  12. I like that bag!


  13. LOVE that blazer, what a great find!! And ahhh binge shopping...so good, but sooooo bad XD

  14. Nice score on the jacket! A camel blazer is definitely a closet staple :)

  15. I totally relate, I have the worst shopping addiction!! Went shopping this weekend to buy a few things for my sisters birthday and ended up leaving with more for myself than for her!!

  16. I'm glad to hear that all the advice helped...and I love that camel blazer. I've been on the hunt for something similar for a while and this is just great!

  17. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is take a leap of faith and just DO whatever it is you want to do. We can be our own worst enemy. But I believe with a lot of hard work you can do whatever you put your mind to. ox

  18. I'm loving your new blazer :) and totaly loving the tucked-in shirt as well! great look Lydia! x

  19. can i just say that i finally stepped into my local tj maxx b/c of you and now have a new favorite store. i cant believe it took me so long to get my butt in there.

  20. I have to read the previous post. I am just trying to catch up with over 200 posts to read.
    I absolutely adore the camel blazer, I am in need of one too.
    BTW I think I'll visit in November :)

  21. Such a great find with that classic blazer.
    Pushing fear away is one of the hardest things in life...

  22. I adore the word thrift...you scored the blazer!beijos


  23. That blazer is awesome, I'm totally jealous. And I saw your bag in brown at Brooklyn Flea yesterday. I was like oh, I like this.. it's $115? And not as good condition. New York prices can kill me sometimes.

    And trust me, you're not a binge shopper. At. All. I should tell you about one of my roommates sometime...

  24. I am in love with blazers. I want one in that color, chocolate brown and navy.

  25. Great blog! I'm lovin' that blush coloured blouse.
    I don't know why but I'm always jealous of people that can wear colours that make me look pale & washed-out. Mustard, red, anything pastel they all look great on brunettes. Again that blouse is great!

  26. That blazer is absolutely beautiful! And sorry I did not comment on your last post, just read it now. I just want to say that we are all there sometimes (at least I hope it's not just the two of us :)) and all we can do is put one foot in front of the other and keep going day by day. Hopefully if we are self-reflective enough (as you clearly are) we will keep growing na improving our whole lives.

  27. Don't give yourself a hard time about the shopping. It seems like most of the time your purchases are well-thought-out and not impulse buys (although I know we're all guilty of those sometimes!). I think you did awesome with this blazer--I'm sure you'll wear it over and over!

  28. That camel blazer is great for fall! I'm glad that you're feeling better and recognize how awesome you are!

  31. Whoa, that's a lot of shopping in a short period of time. Sometimes it's needed so I definitely give you a pass for that one.

    The camel blazer was a great purchases. You look wonderful!!

  32. That blazer was such a deal!! You are always amazing me with you fancy but affordable finds!
