For Motorcyclists and Matrons

Nala, the original feline plus-sized model.

The day I wore this, Grego and I ended up at an extremely sketchy but entertaining flea market on the west side of Columbus. I'd like to think I fit right in with the biker booth there, the one that had a mannequin clad only in thigh-high boots and Harley-Davidson underpants.

This is how a Hell's Angel looks, right?

boots & scarf - thrift

I bought this vintage dress at an Ohio Thrift that was just up the street from the thrift store. I could have filled a car with all of the amazing finds from that place. One item considered but passed up for purchase: a handmade linen tunic and matching capri pants with yarn fringe, circa 1976, for $1.

The elderly lady who owned this frock before it came into my life must have had tiny little arms... I ended up stretching and rolling the cuffs to remedy the inadvertant three-quarter sleeve look.


earrings - I'm going to guess Pangea in Cincinnati
dress - Ohio Thrift on W. Broadway in Columbus
tights and shoes - Forever 21
