Some days I have to withdraw some really old books, mostly because they’re falling apart or really damaged. It’s bittersweet because they don’t make books anymore like they used to. Old books really take beatings from kids. Now they fall apart after being checked out two or three times. So when it was time to get rid of this really old set of Little House of the Prairie books, I had to take a photo to remember them forever.
So now that we have Uniqlo in San Francisco, I find myself gravitating towards their clothes. They have great basics, a fantastic line of other basics made for layering to keep warm (Heattech) and some quirky things that aren’t overly trendy or for really young girls. I’m sold.
Top and pants: Uniqlo (you can shop online!) Sweater: Halogen. Boot: Fornarina (old, from Las Vegas store).
It’s a shame that books like that are in library limbo – nobody wants to read them because they’re so old, but nobody wants to get rid of them either because they’re so old.
