That said, I know that being organized will make me feel a lot better and will make many aspects of life run a lot smoother.
When I started the store, I actually stumbled upon a lot of 48 bins of vintage online and I took a chance and bought them. Those bins plus the vintage I have since accumulated means that there is a lot of stuff in my life right now... So much vintage that needs to be sorted, cleaned, mended... I just want to get to a place where my product is ready to hit the floor in an organized manner. I'm not kidding myself, I know that running a shop is a giant learning curve and I'm probably always going to feel like I'm playing catch up... but I just want to feel more in control.
So... right now I take a day a week, where my track pants and I are locked in the house and we set to work putting things in their place. I don't even allow myself to run to a corner store to get beef jerky. Come spring I will be busy, busy, busy so I want to have things ready to go once this deep freeze releases us. I will say this, metaphorically locking yourself in the house with good food and a good playlist leads to getting things done. I want to, one day, be an organizational machine (hahahahaha, ok then...) but for now, I am happy to be on the road towards that goal.
Oh yes, and this outfit? Clearly not worn on a day of self imposed house arrest. I was out of the house and wearing a ton of lipstick like a free bird...
