...oy.

So, clearly I haven't posted in a while. I meant to, but having a full-time babysitting job and spending time in friends' basements is ultimately not conducive to piecing outfits together. Furthermore, I am finally leaving for Ukraine tomorrow and have made peace with the fact that style is a hobby I cherish but will have to give up for the next two years. I will be working as a volunteer with a very limited living stipend, working on projects in my community, and living off of a single suitcase of mixable-matchable clothing. I will miss it, but I am very happy. I had a wonderful summer - I had lots of time with people I love and even stowed money away for my vacation time abroad.

I have started a new blog at www.natinukraine.blogspot.com where I will chronicle my experiences in the Peace Corps.

Thank you to all who have read this blog. I loved writing it and your websites, comments and creativity have been a delight. Fashion, clothes and style are not things that fit too seamlessly into my life now, but I know I'll be back.

All the best, and all my love!

I'll be looking forward to your new blog. I'm sure it will also be a very good read even if it won't have anything to do with fashion. I like your writing best of all. But I will surely miss seeing you in your fun clothes. I hope you keep this blog (while maintaining a new one) so others would get a chance to discover it. Good luck and all the best ! :-)

Wow, are you in for a surprise! The 2nd hand shopping can be great fun and if you are creative you will definitely put together some great outfits (even on PCV pennies!)! Many PCVs arrive wearing dull, missionary type stuff and flower when they learn enough language to get out and shop. Drop me an e-mail and I can tell you about a couple huuuuuuuuuuge 2nd hand bazaars in Kiev. The shoes and boots in Ukraine are to die for and women are clothing conscious. I splurged on a couple really nice pieces. Shopping is an art..enjoy the new big adventure!

You will be back for sure... Something similar changed my life and had to give up streetstyling, wardroberemix, and so on... now I miss it so much! I think the same will happen to you, but of course it's worth doing it, so... good luck with that new life!
