First, a shout out to my Style nation professor-buddies La Historiadora de Moda and A-Dubs, who are remaining stylish and cool in spite of hectic academic work loads. Here's to some relaxation this weekend!
This is the face of exhausted, working-all-day-but-the-semester-hasn't-even-started-yet-Rad. I'm trying to have patience, because I'm almost done with my Project that Won't Die. (And if I'm lucky, I'll be working on it again in a few months). Today is my perfect snow day. I'll work like someone strongly motivated by an upcoming deadline, and hopefully take a quick walk at some point to enjoy the urban winterscape.
Yesterday, I wore Blokey's favorite striped top (he isn't a huge fan of me appropriating his shirts, since I have about 4x more clothes than he). Here's my also late take on stripes, although this is too far off Breton. I used to exclusively wear men' shirts (wasn't this a thing in the 90s?).* I still usually like men's shirts better than women's, but I think I look slightly better now than back in high school/college, because I'm not wearing those unflattering army green carpenter pants that I practically slept in. (That was a thing too, right?)
As duty calls, I'll be blocking my favorite interwebs
Have a lovely and warm weekend!
*I am thinking about No Signpost in the Sea and Kelly Bean's recent posts about young women, femininity, and self esteem. My sister tells me that there isn't much choice other than super girly, body-conscious clothes or athletic clothes available for girls her age. Is it just me, or did we have more choices (edit) back then in the "anti-fashion" nineties to be more or less feminine than young girls today? I am thinking in terms of role models and widely available clothing for the younger (below 18) set. For example, the young actresses on 90210 back in the 90s wore a variety of gendered styles, compared to the actresses on 90210 today, which seem to mostly wear very feminine and body conscious, body-baring clothes. I wasn't the only one wearing men's style oxford shoes, baggy jeans, and men's oversized sweaters on my much younger body back in the 90s. Anyone?
