Dress 8: Bring Your Own Hazmat

Dress - Forever XXI; Cardigan - H&M; Leggings - American Apparel; Legwarmers - Legs Beautiful.


Yes, today is another sick day at Chez Joanna.  We're all really tired and cranky.  Baby is especially not happy and kept us up most of the night.  By the way, I wanted to thank all of you for your email and comment help and well-wishes.  They really helped cheer me up and motivate me to get better - not to mention get dressed this morning!  Unfortunately no, I'm not looking good.  And yes, I am Oscar the Grouch today. Rawr! But I couldn't spend another day in pajamas, as tempting as that was, and not bring you the next dress installment.  I know you're just dying to know what's in my closet *sarcasm fully intended*. So here it is, dress eight.

I originally bought this dress for hot summer days, but quickly learned that it's better for warm spring days.  Why, you ask?  Well, it's make from a silky material that does not breathe.  So, in the heat it just sticks to your skin and makes you feel gross all over.  But otherwise I love the casual, vintage feel of it.  I think of puttering around the garden, and drinking iced tea in the backyard when I wear this. Wearing it today has given me much needed comfort, because I'm still feeling poo-ey and sucky today.  But I had to be warm, hence I paired it with leggings, a cardigan and leg warmers.   Before we move on: trash, stash or save?  I'm thinking save...how about you?

Now I know they may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I love leg warmers!  They're so cozy and I love the cheese factor! *singing Olivia Newton John* Let's get physical, physical!

What piece of clothing makes you nostalgic?  Is it a pair of jeans, top or sweater?  What does it make you think of?

  1. Legwarmers are actually the piece of clothing that makes me most nostalgic, ironically!!! I used to dance professionally (before I went to college) and legwarmers were my thing...wore them to every class and just loved them to death. Now when I wear them with boots or over shoes or whatever, I just feel like I'm back in the studio, ready to limber up and dance :)

  2. That's awesome Cambria! Isn't it great to be transported to another time and emotion just through a piece of clothing? That's what I love about fashion.
