Oh my word. What have we here.
Lately I’ve been missing my hometown a lot. That’s not to say I love New York any less, but I sometimes want to sojourn back to simpler times. When an afternoon of fun was as simple as going to the Salvation Army for Half-Price Wednesday. Let’s talk about the fashion here, shall we?
So this dress. It’s a doozy. I’m sure I felt positively antebellum in it, but it’s probably someone’s donated Halloween costume or a castoff from a high school production of The Music Man. I kind of love it, because I really hate it. And that “strawberry blonde” hair? WHAT WAS I THINKING? Not a flattering color on me AT ALL.
The only GOOD part about this outfit are the shoes you can barely see peeking out. They were my first “cool” shoes: emerald-green suede Airwalks (back when Airwalks meant something) and I wore them to DEATH. They were so comfortable and I must have found them on a chance sale, because look at me. Would I know cool? I sure as hell didn’t back in September of 2007. Sheesh.
