Visible Monday: Pleats & Sweater Vests
I wore the same pleated skirt for three days running last week! I like the way a this navy pleated skirt plays with my knees when I walk and I know that the sweater vests were inspired by someone who is running for President. The photo on the left was snapped at the end of my work day and the one on the right at the beginning of my work day.
Have you ever thought about the way an outfit evolves over the course of a day? (or even a week?) By the end of a day my hair was pulled back and just before the photo was snapped I had rolled my sleeves back down, but the look held up well over the course of a day in which my creative writing class explored words as sound and my teaching partner M. coached students on creating their own language.
In the second look, the blouse is pink gingham by Evan Piccone. The sweater vest I'm certain is vintage; the label reads JES Original.
In other news the grandson won the local Pine-box Derby, with help from grandpa and the new son-in-law. The daughters and I arrived at our local Target AFTER the Jason Wu collection was pretty picked over. And I watched the pertinent parts of the SuperBowl, the commercials and the half-time show, from my Twitter stream.
Has Madonna rescued middle-aged women from oblivion? We're visible today at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style. Come strut your stuff!
