|green scarf: a gift from my mother, Lupita's (Harlingen, TX)|
sort-of polka dot dress: Connected Apparel, Ross
shoes: Fidji, worn here
So, shoulder pads: I didn't immediately yank them out of this dress, and what an odd sensation after all these years. I kept touching, poking, and squeezing them all day with a sort of affection mixed with unsureness, and never managed to resolve my ambivalence. Reminiscent of puberty.
Have you been noticing more new garments with shoulder pads lately? With either new or not-new stuff, are you taking them out or leaving them at the moment? Might they be starting to look less weird again? Thoughts on whether they work here?
|shoulder pad factor: 5.5 (they were way huger in the 80's)|
blotchy rash factor: 4.5 (down from 8.75, yay!)
|See, not so glum as all that, just weary!|
I am sneaking in at the bottom of Patti's Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday, where I understand our gracious hostess and a lot of y'all are also being green-ish.
Upcoming, I'm excited too for Judith the Style Crone's Hat Attack, and Gracey's Literary Stylings at Fashion for Giants - fingers crossed that I may yet master this "shorter posts" business so I can get around a bit more. I miss you guys!
