SERENDIPITY - this has always been a favorite word describing accidental lucky occurrences - but never more so than this weekend... This weekend we visited our favorite vintage upcycling shop in Chincoteague called MamerSass Reinvented Fashions. I was chatting with owner/designer Jamey who suddenly was inspired to show me her latest design - reinvented off the shoulder shirts. I realized this kind of top was EXACTLY what I will need after my mastectomy next month! You see, experienced friends told me it would be good to have shirts I could step into post surgery when I can't lift my arms.
If that isn't serendipity I don't know what is! And the lovely and talented Jamey created the shirt you see me wearing in the photo from a reinvented man's shirt as well as several more for me before I left the island. It will be roomy enough for me to step into and will fit the post surgical drains. When my arms have recovered these will still be fun tops to wear throughout the summer. Thank you Jamey!
