I am in the witless protection program for crimes against fashion. After years of teaching in outfits which reflected the seasons and holidays during the year, I have lapsed into rags that have little resemblance to clothing.
Panty hose? Have not worn them in years. (Tights sometimes.)
Dresses? Do not currently own one that actually fits.
Coat? Have a beautiful leather parka given to me by my late MIL for Christmas in the early 90's. Worn four times.
High heels? Not in two decades. Clark clogs and Bjorndahl sandals and athletic shoes.
Hats? Not on my huge head!
Here is a typical spring outfit. It is great for cleaning house or for painting.
Notice the abstract art on the front of the tee.
Notice the ragged shorts.
Notice those stylin' shoes complete with overspray.
Notice the bandana to keep the hair out of the paint.
(I promised to grow my hair for a cancer patient hair program. I am ashamed to say I may not make it. The hair is driving me crazy!)
I asked Chucks to take the photos for this post.
He said he wondered why I had brushed my hair and put on a bra.
Also, this is my best outfit - the others were just too, too ragged.
Winters the outfit consists of sweats.
I do own at least ten blue denim shirts - long-sleeved, short-sleeved, and sleeveless.
Countless tees in varying degrees of painted colors.
Two pairs of jeans.
Several pairs of shorts and capris.
This is my shopping outfit. I am drawn to white tanks and tees even though they rarely last for long without paint or stain.
(I am watching out the window at a man taking away the two cot frames I had planned to buy!)
Always a cross-body bag when shopping!
Always my favorite watch - I even sleep in it.
Chucks was reluctant to let me hold the camera.
You notice we have matching outfits?
It only took him two years of retirement to devolve into wearing pajama bottoms and a tee all day long.
We belong together.
Manicure by Rust-Oleum.
Satin Oregano with a light distressing of Sweet Pea.
Dressed to go out -
in 1971! (To a French Club Masquerade Ball.)
I will be shopping next week for something more appropriate to wear. Like maybe some flip flops!
