Boots? Kenneth Cole
Sunglasses? Vintage Steffi Graf, gifted
I wore my ruffled silk dress to go to the grocery store. I suppose that's not completely unnatural. I started a blog and I started over dressing...
Originally, it was a joke between Kendi and I... this whole idea of wearing fancy clothing to perform mundane tasks. She wore her fanciest 30 for 30 dress to the post office and got hit on by a 90 year old man. Nothing that exciting happened to me when I wore this dress BUT... I am pretty sure a 9 year old boy down the street from where I work has a crush on me. I was driving a big lawn tractor the other day and he was impressed. He told me he had $400 in the bank, I told him I have a mortgage... Anyways, that story has nothing to do with this post, I'm just keeping my ego inflated.... thanks for reading...
And then, what started out as a joke but it became a little bit more. We're kind of settled into the new house (new to us... it's actually over 80 years old)... it's been a week of mini breakdowns (uhhh... yeah, that would be me...), cleaning, packing and crappy food. I'm tired and I just want to eat fruit, veggies and bran until Christmas. So getting dressed nicely after a week of half-assed dressing and going out to get good, healthy groceries felt like a new start. A fresh start at a new address.
