Spots and Stripes

Today was TDW’s costume and vintage sale and I was flummoxed on what to wear. The outfit had to be comfortable for lifting, bending, and reaching. It also had to be somewhat modest when performing the aforementioned activities. I needed layers that could be easily added or subtracted to transition from the cool basement to the sunny loading dock. It couldn’t have any precious elements; I didn’t want anything ruined by dirt or moisture. But I still wanted it to be “me.” This is what I came up with.


Jacket, Allen B. Tee, American Apparel. Skirt, No Boundaries (thrifted). Leggings, Target. Boots, Allen B. Necklace, Emily Lyn Design.

The necklace is a bit precious. Beefy bought it for me at The Cincy Flea this afternoon. (We snuck away from the sale for an hour.) I was very careful with it when we returned to clean up.

I'm impressed! On days that I work the book donation days at my library (moving boxes), my clothes aren't nearly as imaginative. I guess that I automatically go for pants and cotton when I think of comfort.
