It was completely unintentional, my wearing more rust-coloured clothing today. What wasn't unintentional was my wearing the dress and the vest. I can't tell you how long I have been wanting to wear the dress and the vest. I got the dress this past Spring. At that time it was too cold (yes, too cold) to wear the dress. Then, Summer hit -- suddenly as usual -- and it was too hot. Then, Fall came. I was too enchanted with jumper dresses and forgot about the dress. When I finally remembered the dress, it rained ... and rained ... and rained. This morning it was still raining, but I finally reached the point of not caring about the possibility of waterlogging the dress -- I would just be careful, avoid puddles, walk gingerly. So I put on the dress. Maybe luck was on my side today. It never rained when I had to be outside. The outfit was the perfect Fall outfit.
I am wearing an H&M dress (from the Spring just past), an old Zara vest, an old Anthropologie wrap belted sweater and an old newsboy cap. My boots are old Fluevogs. I am carrying a Roots bag.
P.S. Oh. I suppose I should say something about my special specs. When I turned on my computer today, I was greeted, as usual in the past week and a half, by a picture of Steve Jobs. It occurred to me all of a sudden that my specs resemble the ones that he wore. That's just one of the things that make the specs special for me.
