Today marks 99 years since the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in which 146 women died. In memorial, a coworker and I took to the streets on a walking tour of famous women of the East Side. I am so grateful that I was able to do something to remember women just like me who unfortunately were not given the privileges I have been granted.
Today I was wearing:
-face tank, UO
-jean skirt, Zara
-black cardigan (it is there, I promise!), H&M
-black blazer, Theory
-black oxfords, C G
-gold studded belt, ebay
-tan hat, Anne Klein
-scarf, still speculating (cousin?)
Not sure what made me reach for this odd-but-fun tank today, since I haven't worn it since sophomore year of college (ok, which wasn't so long ago, but still.) A face on the chest is a bit bizarre but I felt quirky and mod all day (the large vintage sunnies definitely helped, too.)
The fishnets are my compromise with the weather: I will cover up again, but not fully. They keep me from freezing but still allow my legs to take a break from tights, which can get rote after months of continuous wear.
If I hadn't been going on a walking tour today, I think I'd have paired this outfit with heels. Looking at the photos, I just seem so short! The length of the skirt and where it hits certainly contributes to the short/stumpy factor.
I thought this would be the last wear for this hat, a favorite of the past few months, but apparently we may get snow tomorrow. Oh boy.
