Blokey and I have plans for a little mini-break to the Jersey shore this weekend. We may or may not overnight. But we've wanted to go for a while, before the semester got to crazy, and the sun went away for good. I'll try to post boardwalk pictures!
If you're not familiar with David Mitchell, British funnyman and occasional Liberal political commentator, I highly recommend him. I also recommend this recent video of him explaining why he wore the same red shirt on his Soap Box series on the Guardian.co.uk.
While I can quite commit to becoming "Homer Simpson" or "Charlie Brown" in my embrace of a signature uniform, I have been thinking about "uniforms" lately. I want to organize how I dress for school into various "uniforms" so I'm not stuck by my closet, wondering what to wear (the in between seasons weather has not been helping). Jesse.anne.o's post on her experiences with a sustainable fashion workshop during Fashion's Night Out got me nodding. I too want a cool uniform style wardrobe. A jacket, shirt, skirt, and boots are a favorite fall casual uniform. But yet I am reluctant to donate my thrifted prairie dresses...
Ah, what's a conflicted, stuffed closet, eco-wannabe clothing consumer to do?
Also, Stylenation: Can I buy staples to replace the things I've worn out on the GAAD? I need like 1-2 black and white T-shirts, for layering. I have the discipline to traipse in somewhere, buy them and get out (or on Amazon.com, or whatever eretailer I fancy).
