Today, we have to share our street with a certain famous international shoe and textile brand that is taping a "block party" television commercial. I interrupted their shooting a couple times (hey, they were on my stoop and the company made ). I mostly just a little annoyed for my neighbors who had to move their cars this whole weekend.
I wore this weird mix of 50s and Western elements today because we are going to the DMV to finally get NY state driver's lisences I rehemmed (cut) the bottom of this American Apparel skirt, which had that weird upside down U thing going on. The black and white stripes on this cardigan are very small, so the photo looks somewhat psychedelic. I also created an ad hoc sweater guard (curled out cardigan tops make me sad) with some blue embroidery string. I hope the end result is a non-boring license ID photo.
My quickly done sweater guard (instructions: take a thicker string in a color you like. Make a bunch of knots and thread it through a buttonhole. Wrap the leftover string around the top button. Trim if desired.
This is another 100% thrifted/secondhand or swapped outfit.
