Im am not a person who could imagine writing articles from fashion or follow the fashion, I don´t generally even like shopping (yes, it is true!). I use many things until to the end and feel so sad when my favorite t-shirt, bag, shoes etc will eventually meet their end. There are persons who would laugh that I still wear that awful t-shirt that I got adviced years ago to throw away. Now it was really time to say goodbye for few things. My ultimate favorite backpack bought maybe 15 years ago from Holland and my beach/swimming- shoes, they were really getting useluss to have, too many holes that even the bigger stones found their way in..
I really dislike when I really need to have something new, like a new dress for a certain occassion, these shoppings drives me nuts! But then the spontanious ones are successful. I remember when my very dear friend back home asked me to come shopping with her, she needed something new and I didn´t. We had a wonderful day in the center of Helsinki and actually I ended buying plenty of new clothes and she didn´t find what she was looking for. Loads of laughing (and a lot more in the dressing rooms when we both were trying some ridiculous clothes), stopping for a nice meal and shopping was not an urge.
Now it was time to new things and say goodbye to the old ones, but from the bag I feel still bad, but I did take off the buttons, the old ones seems stronger than the ones in this new one. Good old work :)
Obviesly the old one, all the colors have faded..
The new one, wishing a long life for this one too!
Old and new meeting.
So If you are in Crete now and happen to see this girl with her new colorful backpack and new beach shoes, please come to say hi :)
