For some reason, "Working Girl" was the first thing I thought of when putting on my outfit the other day. It's probably the bandanna. It evokes the "We Can Do It" imagery, and Beyonce's "Why don't you love me?" video (in fact it was purchased in London for a fancy dress costume inspired by that very same video). And for some reason those two references make me think of working (both domestic and as part of the work force). On top of it all, I have seen a ZILLION ... ok maybe not a zillion... but a bunch of girls (young and old), tying bandannas, and wearing them like headbands. I did that a couple weeks ago (here), but instead I used mommie's vintage Hermes scarf (shhh.... don't tell).
I was also probably (as usual) too eager to wear my "leg accessories," but I had to. I came across my special effects legwear, and had to put them on. I love them, because they look like pinstripe thigh highs with cutie garters. People give many many compliments on them because they are just that great. If one more person asks where I bought them though, I might scream and cry at the same time. The answer is, I really don't recall and I wish I did.
Hopefully, my eagerness will give Mama Nature a clue, that it is time for Fall, and I know I am not the only one hinting at it. Listen... please?!
