The Sunday Paper (on Tuesday)

Yesterday I felt like taking a walk so we went to Decatur. Once we got off the train it was sooo hot. My body is not used to the weather so it doesn't know how to stay cool properly yet. I kinda foresaw this so I just wore this green dress and flats. I wanted to wear sandals but the sandals I have are not comfy enough for 80 degree weather + walking. I'm really thinking about these fringe sandals from UO. Well, it's more like I've decided on getting the sandals, considering that I now have a job. (Squee!)

For any that are curious, I was reading a free newspaper I picked up. Southern Voice I think? I don't know. At any rate Faggot is the name of a one-man show. It's about the trials and tribulations of being black and gay and it's coming to Atlanta. Apparently the last time it was in Atlanta, traffic slowed in front of the 14th St. Playhouse. I can understand that. When I saw the byline of the paper I had to read the article. It sounds pretty interesting. I'm thinking of going.

When I was little I used to like going through my mother's clothes (and I still do) and trying stuff on and wearing her heels. One day, while looking through my mother's stuffed closet I espied a dress I'd never seen. When I asked her about it, she told me that she was thinking about giving it away but I begged her to keep it for me for when I was older. She said I'd never be able to fit it (I was a beanpole back then and my mother is more curvaceous.) Ten years later I tried it on again and it fit. I mean, I'm not especially curvy (read: no hips) but it's really loose flowing so it fits like a dream. Whenever I walk it likes to flutter around me.

  1. Congratulations on the Job!

    I wish I had been smart enough to tell my mom to keep some of her great clothes when I was younger. Now all I have are memories of fabulous-fashions past...

  7. The dress and the hat are both awesome, and they both do really good things for you.

    I wish my mom had ever had good enough taste for me to want to fit her stuff! All I've gotten from her is an old NOW Tshirt that I sleep in...

  12. The dress is amazing! I wish I had been as fashion forward as you were when I was younger. Nice outfit! I love your blog.

  13. vouged out!!: thanks. I'm glad it does :)

    et cetera: thank you so much! But you know, it's never too late to be fashion forward. In fact, I think older women look better in their clothes than younger women. There's more confidence in it, I suppose.
