On Fashion

Watching White Collar and Chuck is having an odd effect on me. I am having increasing cravings for traditional men's wear - suits, ties, fedoras, vests, etc. I actually pulled out the ironing board this morning and not only ironed my work pants, but my shirt as well. As a consequence, I was an hour late getting to work.

I really must remind myself that I cannot afford to go get myself a couple suits, some tie pins/clips etc. And a pair of button braces. And pants modified to take button braces (I am *done* with clip-on suspenders when wearing a vest.)

I need to hire a wardrobe consultant to shop for me and make clothes for me. Sadly, I seem to have misplaced my production budget.

Clearly, we need to win the lottery.

(I've been having cravings for somewhat fancier clothes as well.)

Yeah, I think I am going to do a run to Kensington Saturday to hit Courage My Love and some of the other second hand stores there. And maybe replace the boots with holes in them.

If you're lucky, a very rich woman will be walking in just as you do with a bunch of her dead husband's clothes that fit you perfectly and are fabulous.

My lack of brilliant blue eyes and washboard abs (still on back order!) may hinder me slightly in this goal.

Somehow, I have visions of being given a shriner's fez and an Elvis jumpsuit that fit me *perfectly*.

Maybe it's on back order with the washboard abs?
