I'll breeze through clothing stores and run my hands along various fabrics, lightly caressing a lace cuff, rubbing the sleeve of a velour track suit, delicately touching an exquisite brushed twill. popping in and out of boutiques, and taking the time to stop and people watch was one way I would teach myself about the city and fashion.
Shopping districts, streets dotted with character filled boutiques attracted me during my shopping escapades. A time gathering ideas, fancying things, touching and trying on. Even when I walk away empty handed. I return to my own closet bursting with ways to restyle and mix/match.
