Mattie Muse: Attention To Detail

Don’t you get excited when you find a piece in your closet you totally forgot you had and you totally love it?! TOTALLY! A year or so ago, my friend Rachel made me this skirt with some fabric the bestie brought back from Liberia. I know, my friends are I haven’t worn it in a while and I was so pleased to come across it when I was getting dressed. Because the print is so prominent, I figured there’s no point in being shy (what’s that?) with the accessories. I’m totally smitten over my Heart of Haiti necklace I received a few weeks ago and I’m sure you guys have noticed it in a few other of my outfit posts. I paired it up with a leaf cuff I haven’t worn in a while, “Geoffrey” (my double headed giraffe bracelet) which is tarnished but I refuse to give him up, my silver bracelet from Sherane’s Vintage Closet and an African bracelet I wore for the Miss Liberia pageant.

It’s funny that I can tell you where all of these pieces are from – who made them, where I bought them and when. But I can’t tell you what I ate for dinner last night. (I’m so lying – it was red beans and rice.) When it comes to the things and people I love, I always pay attention to detail. Or at least I act like I do, so no one’s feelings are hurt. I know. Thoughtful.
