1. If you had to wear the clothes from another time period, when would it be?
I don’t have to think about this one very long. The 60’s. I would love to be able to dress the way they do in Mad Men all the time. Did you watch any episodes of Mad Men?
Here are some of my 60’s inspired picks:
2. What are you embarrassed that you wore but used to think was cool?
I dressed really conservatively so I don’t have a lot of regrets. I can’t believe that overalls with bibs were ever in style and I can’t believe that they keep coming back! I had a few sets of overalls in my early teens. The one I remember most had Kelly green stripes and gigantic green buttons.
3. What’s your favorite article of clothing in your closet right now?
My favourite thing in my closet right now is a thin velour, dressy tank top that I got for June’s baptism. It matches the floral velvet skirt by April Cornell that I wore when I got married. I’ll be wearing it again when we get married in the church on Boxing Day.
Sadly, the April Cornell shop near me closed many years ago. I used to stop in just about daily after my morning walk and catch all the sales. She designs housewares, too.
