TBT: Endless Summer

I find it unnecessary and even kind of obnoxious when bloggers apologize for long absences. Especially when they go on and on about whatever-dog-ate-my-homework business kept them from posting, I'm like, yeah I don't give a damn; life happens, my feelings aren't hurt, get the hell on with it already. 

However, I am going to tell you about what kept me from posting the ol' I'm Wearing Your Clothes for so long, because it is awesome: My professional gift wrapping business, Ace Gift Wrapping Service, killed it this holiday season. Starting in October we got slammed with business. We wrapped so many gifts, there wasn't time for anything except wrapping wrapping wrapping. It was brilliant, totally derailed several other projects, but rightfully so, because wrapping gifts is the best. And that's why I'm Wearing Your Clothes went off the radar for a while, and I'm not damn sorry. 

I'm sure now you're asking, "but Sig, Christmas was three months ago. What happened since then?" Yes, about that. You see, I was- GOOD LORD LOOK OVER THERE! 

Anyway, what was I saying? Oh yes, this outfit. I really liked this one. It's from last summer solstice. Today, March 19, 2015, is hot and sunny in Oakland. I'm wearing sandals. Last summer solstice, not so much, which is why I wore over-the-knee, bought-new boots. The over-the-knee socks were also new, and are the "heat generating" kind from Uniqlo. Whether or not they actually generate heat I don't know, but the marketing gets me right in the cold little extremities, so I have several garments from that line.

The dress is a hand-me-down gift, and is made of supernaturally soft fabric. The coat was street-scored from a neighbor's give-away pile, and I hope the neighbor sees me wearing it and thinks "the circle of life is complete."
