Failed Attempt?

Or, I don’t know, maybe not. While I was going for Jenna Lyons today, I think I ended up looking more a mother of two from Maine. Is that so bad though? (Rhetorical question — the answer is no.)

Uniqlo sweater, men’s Acne pants, Valentino heels. (Though not to blow my own load, I am pretty sure an uncannily similar version exists and lives at Zara.)

    As a Maine resident, I can say you’re safe. No mothers here dress that way–our ankles would be cold.

    I think of Chicago, Wrigleyville 1994 a sea of Khakis not a pair of jeans in site. I remember this because I thought it was weird. The mid 90’s were all about the Khaki. Not my favorite. Unless I’m watching the The English Patient then its Fantasy.
