… and a big Panama with a purple hat band.
I’ve always loved the refrain of this silly song by Dodie Stevens, and I’m reminded of it often. On the train this morning, I sat across from a gorgeous woman who may have taken her sartorial tips from this song. Perfectly normal brown boots with no shoelaces with purple tights, a skirt that was a mix of red plaid, green paisley, and leopard print, and a faux fur vest over a leopard print top. She looked wild … but also pretty fabulous.
And then there was the guy who sat next to me at a meeting last week:
I asked about the socks, and was told that they aren’t his only pair! Because I guess if you’re going to wear Honest Abe on your feet, you need to make a real commitment, can’t be a once-in-a-while kind of thing!
Do you have a favorite unusual article of clothing, something that always gets looks and comments from folks on the street (or in meetings)?
I’m crazy-tired tonight, so all I can manage is this foolishness. I’ll post about my schadenfreude reading tomorrow. Good night!
