Cowl Operator

Friday, I got two compliments on this funny dress, both from old ladies.

I'm starting to think my style isn't "edgy" as much as it's "elderly."

Bu then, my handsome boyfriend, awesome best friend, and several locals in Rabbit Hash complimented it. So, apparently, it's just a crowd-pleaser.

I honestly can't even explain this dress. I got it at House of Curious Treasures (for $5!) and my guess is that it was a late '70s home sewing project.

There are no tags in it and it originally had long sleeves with elastic cuffs. Yuck.

But look at that cowl neck! It makes no sense!

Elderly style is the best! I'm an old lady at heart.

Me too! But I'm also kind of a cowgirl hooker at heart, too. And did you notice me totally stealing your style in the sixth photo? It's a Kasmira pose!

Maybe we could think of it in Spanish terms as putting the "senorita" in seniority?

Regardless, the cowl rules.
