What I Wore Today


I was attracted to these pants because they reminded me of the wallpaper in the house I lived in in Newburgh, IN from 1967-1970 (that’s birth to three).  I can’t actually remember the wallpaper, I just remember some photos.

There was also this Rolling Stones-Mod-Dandy-Austin Powers vibe I was getting, so I worked that angle with the ascot thing.

Still Enamored of Palm Trees

I was 25 the first time I visited California, and noticed two things immediately: dang, there really are palm trees everywhere, and wow, everything’s in Spanish.  Still love those two things, and still find palm trees really exotic.  

I was at a conference at the beautiful Clark Kerr campus, which is actually a residence hall during the school year.  Can you imagine coming here as a first-year student, especially if you’re a domestic non-resident? Oops, I mean not from Cali.  It looks like a resort!

  • Jacket: thrifted from Savers, from the boys dept. I love having an inside breast pocket!
  • Crazy print tunic: Factory2U in the Mission
  • Leopard pants: Sears, the French Connection line
  • Boots: Lauren Ralph Lauren, from my bro
  • Pendant: Sears
  • Column earrings (get it?  I’m wearing columns, and I’m standing by a column, and the palm tree kind of looks like a column?): Express, thrifted from the SA in Evansville
  • Bracelets: F21
  • Sunglasses: Tsering Jewelry on Durant
  • (That yellow thing on my wrist is from the conference.)
