Ah, interesting things happen when I wear my clothes. Today I went to get food at the store. A teenage boy said, “I really like your costume!” and I gave him this smirk and look and said, “I dress like this every day.” He said, “oh wow! I love your fashion sense then!” and then the guy proceeded to ask me if I use a computer because he assumed I did everything in old era. . .wow. He was amazed I used my bank card to pay for my food and told me so. I find people’s reactions to my clothes so hilarious. I don’t even realize it most of the time because I have been wearing vintage and “unusual” clothing since I was 7. I notice 80-90 year olds smile a lot when they see me in the store.
This location is right around the corner from where my husband works. After I picked him up I asked him to stop there so I could take some photos (ah, I love my tripod and remote). He enjoyed talking to our sons while I did this (which was maybe for 5 minutes). I plan on using this location again in the future.
This skirt also is a bit short for me. I need to make sure that I check lengths of skirts before I buy dresses. Having long torsos and legs sometimes causes such problems. I just read people’s reviews for this dress and complained about how it fit. I wore a petticoat underneath so I had no issues with the waist like a lot of them said was weird for them. I think it is perfect, so I just submitted a review for it too. I bought this dress the day it was released.

I really have a sailor addiction.
I blame being obsessed with watching Shirley Temple’s “Captain January” as a child.
I watched this movie over and over and over and over and over. . .
