My grand daughter was Lorax crazy last year, and I have watched that movie at least a hundred times. The Lorax, for those of you who don’t have small children around, was a Dr. Seuss book that is about the environment. The Once-ler invented a product that was so versatile that everyone wanted to purchase it. He used all the trees in the land to produce his product. It is a wonderful little story about over consumption and the effect on the environment. The Once-ler’s product was called a thneed. It was a knitted “thing” that could be worn for many different products. It could convert to a hat, purse, scarf, etc. That was the first thing I thought of when I came upon this beautiful fuchsia sweater. I bought this on my trip to Atlanta at the little tea shop on the square in Marietta. It is by scene weaver, and it officially called a wrap.I chose to wear it to the side and put it over a button up shirt. The shirt is dark blue with white chihuahuas, and the occasional fuchsia one. I put on a couple of necklace’s, but just didn’t like anything. The wrap is so gorgeous, I just let it steal the show. I have on pearl earrings, a couple of pearl bracelets, and a Michael Kors tortoiseshell bangle bracelet.This purse is a Valentina that I bought a couple years ago. After my sister suggested that I was carrying the same purse over and over, I rummaged in my closet and came out with this green beauty. I am so sorry I have a limited checkbook, and have been subjecting her to the same ole purse. I think she has an ulterior motive, she thinks I will hand off my old one’s. NOT! Here is the purse on ebay for a great price.I have chosen to wear my distressed jeans from Cato. I know some people consider me too old for this look. My advice to them is, don’t buy them. I like them, and that’s that. These shoes are from a local thrift store, and I bought them for a coupe bucks. The wrap is shorter in the back the way I chose to wear it. Here is a side view for proportions. Speaking of proportions, some of you have asked about my size. I am 5’6″, and usually wear a size 10. If the sizes are S, M, or L, I will choose L. I have plenty of bumps and rolls, and you do not want to see them. HahahaYou might have noticed that I have on a different pair of shoes. I was afraid the others would bother me, so before I walked out the door, I put on these. They are Fergalicious Alana flats. Two pair of shoes in one post, I wonder if my sister is happy.
