the thoughtful dresser by Linda Grant
Really liked the book!!! Grants voice/writing style was very enjoyable to me. She was funny and smart and had a good sense of humor. I'm not going to give away all the deets, but she talks about fashion and basically why a lot of us really enjoy it. Annnnnd how a big part of why some people put down fashion, particularly a woman's interest in fashion is basically based in misogyny.
I need to find out who is next for this book and send it off!! It's a great summer read :) THANKS Jan for the rec!!!
My mom just came for her week long vacation and birthday visit and we had ridiculous amounts of fun. So grateful for my mom.
Now, a few quick posts. I realized I haven't even really taken pics or shared some of my favorite items of clothing. I got this sort of undergarment white cotton slip that I wear like a dress last summer on my New York trip from Artists & Flea.
I rly love it!! But, I am considering dyeing it blue... I'm figuring I'll wait 'till I've completely stained it (bound to happen!) and then do it. The biggest cuff from Queen Vix. The fabulous short pink kimono is from Twice Round Vintage. That was the store I mentioned before that I wanted to keep to myself for awhile, maybe pretend I own it, possible move in and live there... What I like about it, you ask???? Lots of fun vintage at AFFORDABLE prices!!!!! Thank you very much!
Also, sometimes when it's rly hot I just wear crap like this:
Some thrift shop cheap Mango label dress that I don't even have to feel guilty about wiping my hands on if I want to...
Also, Asheville is confusing in the summer. I keep walking out to my backyard, but there is just a big garden and no swimming pool!? Hmmph.
P.S. Those roots! Need my hair did STAT! Off to catch up with blogs!!!!!
