Yesterday I felt like I was in the 1940s

Whenever I watch any movie set in the 40s, I am always fascinated by what the wore and the manner in which they carried themselves. So, every time I get a chance to dress up as they did, I grab it with both hands.

I went home yesterday to find that my mom, who has been a dressmaker for over 30 years, made the skirt that I had been begging her to make in the cloth that I found over a week ago.


Day 23 of not wearing my beloved Chuck Taylors

I think I may be a lazy dresser.

I see what’s out there and I am certainly enthralled by the colors, cuts, and creative way these clothes are created and spread out for the picking, but I always run back to my Chuck Taylors and find comfort in what I – particularly my feet – already know.
