Today's Special: Angora & 8 Tracks

Two important pieces of information!
I have a new uniform- Sheer button-downs buttoned way up, a tiny skirt and a giant cardigan.
AND: I finally set up (one of) my 8 track player, which I have dragged around to countless apartments since I purchased it in college.

Isn't this important and invaluable knowledge for you to have in your life?!?!


 
 




1980s angora cardigan: Thrift.. have had this for years
Sheer shirt (missing top button, sigh): American Apparel (ADDICTED to this piece; I want every color and print)
Silk snap-front striped skirt with pockets: Club Monaco
Knee socks: Rodarte for Target 
Sock Garters: gift from Swan Clothing 
Maroon suede clogs: Steve Madden

I went on a wee spree (rhymes!) in the beginning of December and bought a bunch of new skirts and a few new/thirfted cardigans (current favorites-that aren't used- Muji!) and have been wearing them all in every combo possible. These sock garters make me feel suuuuper saucy- plus I finally have something to hold up my vintage silk stockings. I like winter very much thanks but I am looking forward to bare legged weather so these sexxxay accessories can see the outside of my house.

I love listening to 8 tracks. There is a real sense of satisfaction involved in pushing the big fat button to switch between tracks. I have a LLOYD'S player & speakers, which my dad informs me was the big deal brand back in the day. I have a pretty good selection of tapes if you don't mind me saying (and aren't the colored ones just SO aesthitically pleasing?!?) but if you have any in your attic gathering dust.. PLEASE! Send them my way!

I have a Boz Scaggs 8 track. For real. Still in it's sleeve and has the price tag, bought in 1979 for $6.99 at Record Bar.

I am in love with this outfit! You are so best.

Looks like you have "Classic Elton John". Crocodile Rock was my fave song to listen to on 8-track when I was about 4!

I love the idea of "uniforms," a certain comfort combo...but within those silhouettes a million different colors and patterns, etc. You wear this uniform well! I'm counting down the days until it's sunny, too. The only shoes I can comfortably wear outside these days are wellies. Snow up to my eyeballs.

You, your outfit, 8 track and this whole post are awesome. Love love love that skirt and cardigan.

I think this is such a sexy outfit without being overly so. I live vicariously through your huge shoes-- certainly I would struggle to remain upright walking on the more bumpy new york streets and sidewalks. your calves must be in top shape.
