This velvet duster is my everything right now.
I have never loved a garment this much since this time last year when I was religiously wearing my velvet blazer from this post everyday from November up until January. And I mean I wore it Every. Day.
Well this is my newest obsession, and I know it is just as obsessed with me. I love the tone, I love the texture, I love how it pops against my all black ensemble (as most things do) and I love that it is unique. I love that not many people will have it. I love that I probably won't find anything like it again so it reminds me to treat it with care, which makes me think that recongoinzing how special something is shouldn't just be a once in a while thing. Noticing how much you appreciate a friend for a simple article they forwarded to you, or how your mother will answer your call even if it's the tenth one that day, or how your sister can always make you laugh even in the most glum of times. It's recognizing that special things come, and they may go, but they aren't always rare and we should treat them with care when they're there.
Maybe that's too much to put on a duster, and maybe I'm thinking too much of this and that, and maybe things are just as shallow as they seem, but thinking about how special something is and how lucky we are, truly, to have everyday and to have the option of choosing a velvet duster or gray pullover is a wonderfully special choice, and one I think we should all cherish.
Did this post make any sense? Did the inside of my head make you dizzy? Well join the ride, because my world is always spinning.
