Living life can be a serendipitous adventure at times. For example, on a recent vacation I had no intention of purchasing clothing and found myself buying an entire suit complete with two shirts and a couple of neckties. Artwork is a totally separate story, I always seem to be somewhat prepared to run with my heart and make impulse buys that I rationalize I can afford to make. But I digress. Here I was strolling down Front Street (Traverse City, Michigan) a couple of months ago when lo and behold a suit caught my eye. Granted, it was a color and style suit that I had previously had and was needing to replace, but I really had no intention of replacing it until the first of the year. But alas, I walked in, they had my size, and after a few measurements and adjustments, I was the proud owner of a new suit. During the course of this serendipitous shopping, I also espied this pink and gray paisley necktie! Woe is me! It beautifully compliments my dark pink shirt and will look equally stunning with my light pink shirt, my gray shirt, and even my black shirt and red my shirt (though probably not as “killer”). I now no longer need to be looking to replace this suit at the first of the year . . . but you just never know what else will jump in front of me that I will just have to own. So, since the shopping/holiday season is upon us, happy shopping, one and all! Go forth and find those bargains that you can’t live without!
