So for the record, today is my birthday! Yep, to all you other Geminis out there, this is our time to shine haha Just the other day, an email went around the office outlining the personality traits of each star sign. Here's what it said for the Gemini:
"The Gemini personality is bright, witty and adaptable. Very little ever troubles Gemini, or stop one talking for long - Gemini can argue their way out of any situation. Having a lively curiosity, Gemini also excels at gathering information, processing it, and expressing it in an accessible way to the waiting world. This personality can do almost everything - so long as it does not cause boredom, anathema to Gemini. With so many talents and an ability to make something out of nothing, Gemini's difficulty lies in deciding where, and how to concentrate. Gemini are almost always doing at least two things at once, you will usually find."
Uhuhh! Hit the nail on the head! With life's experiences and growing up, the trait of being "adaptable" is one I agree sums me up perfectly. Not only reflected in my personality and outlook on life, I have also recognized it is reflected in my fashion style. One day I'm dressed very preppy, the next minimal androgynous and the following 70s vintage. We are very adaptable beings indeed - but I guess that's why we have split personalities. We are very good at playing "different roles" If there are any Gemini readers out there - please, give us a holla :)
When shopping for new clothes, our adaptability is regarded as an advantage; we aren't limited to a single look or style, we have our eyes on many instead! One of the trends I often look out for is the gyspy/boho/70s, with velvet being a personal favourite (if you haven't picked up on that yet!). Having visiting online vintage store Red Mera Vintage and blog on numerous occasions, I could not walk away from this amazing top! It had all the features I was looking for - appropriate for winter, long sleeved, velvet, navy, interesting details and the best bit - tassels! Maybe I did construct my "list of requirements" as soon as I came across the item, but just like they say - your wants can magically turn into your needs. Shikha, owner and founder of Red Mera Vintage was super kind and helpful in regards to my exciting auction win and got the top to me BEFORE my birthday today! I am very much looking forward to wearing it and shaking those tassels.
Thank you so much Shikha - she even included this wonderful Red Mera Vintage postcard and birthday greeting!
