I've often exhibited a wee bit of a penchant for dressing like a 70s art teacher. You know, that overly sensitive, brainy, bleeding-heart, who tries to coax their inner being out of her students through the medium of paper mache.
And possibly has a community organizer boyfriend and goes to women's lib marches in her free time. You feel me?
Here's the latest round of proof.
The skirt is from the Dump, the shirt and clogs thrifted, the vest a gift from the lovely and amazing Amber and the butterfly made by me.
There's just something about this particular character that's really appealing tom me: clogs, crazy jewellery, smock-tops, sensibleness. It's funny how, after I get dressed, I sometimes just go "This is totally That 70s Teacher-outfit!" or "Oh noes! I'm dressed like an little orphan from the mills again!" I think the "characters" I channel the most are those two, as well as an eccentric old lady (possibly That 70s Old Lady), and on my off days, a version of my own disgruntled teenage self. Talk about split personalities...
Who do you channel when you get dressed?
