"Do I Dare?"
I'm in Cleveland for a couple weeks right now, and I've been going to some of the thrift stores I used to raid back in high school. Today I saw an old man in a white and blue pinstripe suit at the checkout counter of Unique Thrift with his wife, who was wearing all pink with a huge straw hat. They were having so much fun together, and they were buying more ridiculous clothes. I believe that how you dress matters, but I also believe that it should be fun. If you are stressed, anxious and self-concious about what you are wearing, or you are dressing to please others, it takes the joy out of putting on clothes. The old man in the pinstripe suit was clearly liberated from self-conciousness, and he was the biggest fan of his own outfit. Ok maybe his wife was, and then him. I told the couple they were my fashion heroes, and then decided I needed to make a post about it.
Whether it is the person who is wearing the outfit, or the outfit who is wearing the person, here are some of my favorites:
