Aging Gracefully

I drank 938 gallons of iced tea on my drive to Columbus and felt crazy. Crazy enough to decide to take pictures of my sunglasses while driving.

sunglasses - Vintage Things in Burlington, KY

I wish you could see this dress a bit better but my camera battery died before I could snap another shot. For being as tattered as it is, this little gown makes me feel pretty foxy.

dress - A vintage shop in NOLA. I can't remember which one. It's on Magazine Street.

By the time my camera had been resuscitated, I had changed into an ensemble worthy of the Short North Gallery Hop that was happening a few blocks from my Columbus digs.

boots - thrift

After a pretty successful job interview on Monday, I decided to go for the most relaxed on outfits. This is as sloppy as you can get when you don't wear sweatpants.
