Oh goodness. I’m awesome because I wear what I love, I draw what I wear, and I enjoy life.
I’m wearing an oversized sweatshirt, bright turquoise shorts, and navy blue flats.
I bought two lightweight camisoles. I couldn’t survive a Texas summer without them! They are great layering pieces underneath blouses.
What is the item of clothing you most covet at the moment?
I would love to own a silk navy blue shirtdress.
I have always enjoyed putting outfits together. One of my favorite childhood outfits featured magenta corduroys, a turquoise knit sweater with a yellow duck on it, and white plastic pearls. My mom allowed me to dress somewhat freely until fourth grade. After that, clothes became a battleground for us. I spent most of my time wearing what she approved instead of what I wanted. But now she says I have great style.
What is your best thrifting score?
My best score (so far) is a green silk floral print vintage Ungaro dress that I bought for $5. It’s in immaculate condition, and it has lovely details– pockets, a straight skirt, and bows! It’s not unusual to find designer pieces at thrift stores in Texas. I like pretending that an oil baroness grew tired of her clothes and told her assistant, “Please get rid of these.” Then they wind up with me!
