Leftovers? Surely not.


I've been trolling my stash of photos from style parkouring with Sandra, Lens is More. Hundreds. Each one brings back a laugh. I farked a bit with a few; this is a sample. Sandra and I haven't been out lately but that doesn't mean we're finished.

That's the bathing cap I use for real in the first photo, worn with Sandra's sunglasses And the plastic-blend blanket I'm wearing in the third photo is one I actually wrapped around me one rainy, nasty winter afternoon when I had car trouble and hadn't brought a coat. I got many compliments on it. Attitude my friends, whipping it about like I planned it. The leaves stuck on it were artful. No joke: that's what fashion is, pulling something off that would otherwise look like an emergency car-trunk blanket that's seen one picnic too many. I admit, I liked wearing it - it felt cozy - so the faking part was easy.

And the last photo is Sandra with her self-made armlets, my Miz Bagg hat, and a major red lipstick experiment. Love it. The alley mattress shot was taken on the day I did my post about squeaking under a gibbous moon. Except for the mattress photo, these pics were all taken with the June 2013 VOGOFF in mind but they didn't make the cut. So. many. photos. I hate to waste them. Plus, we had a blast taking them - why bother otherwise?

I'm linking this up with Patti at Not Dead Yet Style's Visible Monday. These photos count because that IS my real bathing cap and I actually wore the coat, maybe not this week, but I do in real life. See you there?

  4. Ohhhh, I had a bathing cap like that once. Pulled my hair like crazy but loved it anyway. "Style parkouring," what a fabulous phrase.

  9. That first photo is art, dahling! And I am convinced that is you wear anything with sufficient elan, people will presume it was intentional (and probably copy you!) xxxx

  15. Darrrrrliiiiing! Attitude is, indeed everything. Nothing more needs saying.
    Except you look epic, as always.
    I'm thrilled I'm in style ... Dan bought me pink mirrored sunnies to go with my pink coat this winter! I'll sleep better tonight now that I see them on your blog. Really. You rock.

  16. Your posts so often are a breath of air that fills me with ideas of how differently the world might be viewed. It looks like the two of you had a blast. Thank you for sharing!
