It's Seems So Long Since I Felt Normal
It has probably been at least one year since I was so sick that I stopped thinking about clothes or deriving pleasure from clothes. However long it has been, I am currently in the midst of recovering from a bad bout of the flu. While I was in the depths of the illness, clothes (and I am talking about looking at or thinking about clothes, wearing real clothes being outside the realm of the possible) brought me no comfort at all. I am far from fully recovered from the flu ... and I am far from finding comfort in looking at clothes or putting together outfits. I suspect that it will be some time before things are normal, healthwise or clothes-wise. Today's outfit is one of the last outfits that I wore before the flu hit me.
I am wearing a vintage Gap handknit turtleneck, vintage Old Navy corduroys and a vintage Gap belt. My socks are old by LLBean and my boots are Bogs.
