Day 143 -- Modern Sixties
When: Monday, January 21st, 2013
Where: Studio! (Dog walk)
Oh my god, was it hot! Wearing tights was the total wrong choice. After walking Bucket, I could wait to take them off and sip some sweet iced tea. It was burning outside!
I put on this dress in the first place because it is so cold in my house and studio. I hope this bodes well for summer. When it gets up to the triple digits in a few months, I hope the house will be just as cool and drafty as it has been this winter. This dress slash tights combo kept me warm for the fifteen minutes I spent in the house before I went outside and almost went up in flame.
I love the 1960s feel of this wooly wonder, and so I played into the look with minimal jewelery, a chunky black pump, and a thick sweep of black eye liner. I still love getting dressed up, even if it's only to go on a quick walk and sit alone in my studio all day. It's one of the very few things that makes me get out of bed in the morning.
