New Day #152

One of the consequences of photographing myself so much for this blog has been that I've noticed how limited my wardrobe is. A casual survey of this blog shows me in the same damn sweater here and here and here and here. Don't even get me started on the ubiquitous gray blazer.

Unfortunately, one of the reasons I've been in a sartorial rut has been a little something called the recession--perhaps you've heard something about it. But then my friend Gert Boyle gave me a pass to the employee store at Columbia Sportswear. We're talking 2/3 off. We're talking eight items of clothing for two hundred bucks.

We're talking a new fleece on life.

So what do I do? I buy something that looks just like my friggin' sweater.

Recession??? I hear we may be entering one soon.

I do hear that fleece is recession proof.

Why ruin a good thing.

Apropos: Mark Morford's column in SFGate, wherein he says, "Clean drinking water is the new oil, gold and cocaine combined. Seattle and Portland are quietly preparing for a land rush, as millions of Americans begin to panic and start to relocate to where it rains all the time and there seems to be plenty of water and everyone's suffering from seasonal affective disorder from all the relentless drizzly grayness in a place where hideous green fleece jackets from REI are considered acceptable public attire. But at least we won't be thirsty." But don't worry. I'm a major fleece proponent...

Katharine Hepburn, had a closet full of white silk shirts beige slacks and black cashmere cardigans.
She always dressed the same, and she was always well dressed.
Who said one has to change one´s style?.

When you find a style that you like and it looks good on you, why change?
It looks good on you and if it is comphy to...a win win.

I was totally going to talk to you about that sweater, actually.

At least there's no picture of the sweater WITH the blazer. That should be some consolation...

P.s. Thanks for the tip on Eliza Doolittle Day!

That's an interesting brown but I think I like the gray sweater better. I had a German teacher from Germany in college. She would wear the same dress for like days on end. I think having lots of different clothes is a fairly American concept.

At least that's what I tell myself when I wear the same black cardigan sweater day after day. "I'm not in a rut, I'm European!"
