What sealed the deal in my mind I am sure, was the name of the color, Picasso Smoke.Such a gorgeous juxtaposition of words... and exactly the color of the velvet ribbon in this choker. The overall dusky hues also evoked the name. Of all things to remember, so many (!) years later says a lot about memory. I know I have forgotten many details of my life so far; I have forgotten them so I cannot relate how many or why those thoughts have vanished. All I can speculate on is why I do remember what I do.
Picking out that couch was a strong signifier of who I was at the time. I shopped for it alone. Paid for it with my hard earned money from my paste-up artist job. It looked great in my apartment, my choice was the right one. Now that purchase is giving me one more pleasure, the name of my favorite new choker, Picasso Smoke.
Along with my Etsy vintage textile jewelry shop greavesdesign, in September 2008 I opened FoundVintageStyle, to reflect my growing awareness of the quality, beauty, economic and environmental value of vintage goods. I am loving every minute.
