This is going to be a long, long post because I'm totally obsessed with this skirt. I can't say much of it's origins. Its tag sings of a brand I've never heard of, but seems to suggest the kind of "wear-to-work" clothes women with fashionably constricting jobs used to be able to get away with. (As a vintage shopper, that's a stylistic avenue I seriously approve of.) I grabbed it on a 20-minute run through the Amherst Goodwill (I miss you, Western Mass!) when I had a bit of a wait for my bus. Fabulous decision. Added bonus: It was only $1.50! I love the half-off specials.
This is exactly the windy day this beauty deserves. The color, the pattern--everything, essentially. It's a little big on me, but I think I like it that way.
That Goodwill run also produced this glorious bag. God, I'm such a sucker for vintage. It's actually dated. There's a tag in there that actually says "copyright 1975." It's that awful-wonderful leather-look vinyl material that you just can't get anymore. And so spacious! I adore it. At $5, I almost didn't buy it, but after coming back and staring at it longingly six or seven times, I figured it was worth the sacrifice.
In other news, I just feel kind of great about myself today. You can totally see my bra through my dress: Don't care. I haven't shaved my armpits in weeks: Fuck yeah, feminism. Pair those attitudes with classic red lips, and I feel like I can take on the whole damn world.
I'm going to see an old friend tonight. Perhaps she'll want to take on the whole world with me?
I don't look like my mother at all, but somehow I feel like I look like her in this picture. It's a resemblance of attitude.
My mother is beautiful, so that's pretty exciting.
