I Wear Polka Dots more than I Realized
Another drizzly day, and I’m test driving this super long Preloved scarf and mitts combo, donated again by eBay’s Green Team. The mitts seem to be perfectly made for small girl hands. Being from Manitoba originally I feel I’m extra qualified to comment on mitts, having worn them almost 6 months out of the year while growing up.
I’m wearing a trench I picked up while in Hong Kong 7 years ago, a polka dotted tank and a raw silk jacket I designed for a company I once worked for. Wooly socks and army boots are keeping me warm under the dress… which I’ve worn as a skirt today by unbuttoning the bodice and folding it into the skirt. A vintage fabric belt and a necklace of my own design (the Coconut Spike necklace) finish things off.
Saw some kids on the way to the studio today and it made me think about how thankful the kids in the video made by Free the Children are…
this is what they said about their old school:
“I went to the old school it was very dark,”
“I didn’t like it at all, it was muddy”
and of their new school:
“In the new school a nice breeze comes,”
“even the light comes”
