There's no point in going to New York if you're not going to try and serve it up like a hot potato. This isn't to say that the city dwellers were overly concerned with your clothing choices or lack thereof. Where everyone is marching towards a different destiny and different drum what keeps everything together is the architecture. Or something like that? I'm not super sure guys. I'm down with something and my brain is a total bowl of mush. I'm saving brain cells for my term papers. So the most I can do today is talk about manly dressing 101. If you've been here before you've heard me rave you into lunacy about how much I love men's pieces! Granted the only men's pieces I'm wearing here are the trousers and sneakers. Nonetheless the rest of my look followed suit in being pulled away from my body, loose and baggy. As this was a busy museum day my primary thought was pockets, comfort and more pockets (there was tons of security and as such sometimes bags had to be stowed away). So add in the never ending pockets of my trousers, t-shirt dress and dress (masquerading as a vest for the nth time) and BAM. I was ready. Most important are the little details. If you've got some tig ol bitties unbutton that button up lest you end up looking like you're hiding something. Strap a crossbody on to make sure you didn't take the man in manly silhoutte too seriously. That's it. You're ready to walk out the door. But in all seriousness there was something very lovely about wearing this. I didn't have any men look at me, except for when they were complimenting my kick ass hat. So freeing to not have to worry about whether or not I'd pulled of a layer too quickly and given security an eyeful neither of us were ready for as well. More to come...
