"they're quite comfortable..."

"I think everyone will be wearing them in the future. " Or so says Westley in The Princess Bride when asked why he wears a mask. I don't know why it is, but I have been fascinated with masks since I was little. Something about the person in the mask is so mysterious and captivating that I can't help but be drawn to them.



So, to spruce up this outfit for the pictures, I added this pretty sparkly number that I think I got at a dollar store. This kind of simple outfit is what I wore to work today at Hallmark. This beautiful sweater was hidden in my closet and I'm so glad I found it! It is so soft and comfortable, plus it looked great with these plaid trousers.

Lately I have been drawn to clutches for day use as opposed to night use, which I think they're mostly saved for. Even though they are practically useless (as they hold...hmmm, nothing and are a hassle to carry all over the place), they never fail to add a little something more to any outfit.

Does anyone know how to fasten a pin or brooch so it won't make holes in your clothes? Or so it won't flop all over the place? I love pretty pins and brooches and I think they are a wonderful alternative to necklaces in certain outfits, however, I don't want them to look silly (if they're flopped over) and I don't want to ruin my top with pin holes. We must ponder this.

I'll also leave you with something else to ponder:

“No mask like open truth to cover lies,
As to go naked is the best disguise.”

What a cute mask and great way to spice up an outfit!

I've no idea either on how to pin a brooch so it won't make a hole on your blouse, it is pretty annoying isn't it?
