So how does one deal with a rebellious streak? Maybe we can take Marc Jacobs' approach. Take the streak and make it straight, but slap some humor into prim-and-proper. This is not your father's pinstriped suit.
|What I wore to a part-meeting, part-social gathering:|
Skirt suit: Marc by Marc Jacobs
Silk Shirt: Urban Outfitters
The central zipper running from collar to hem feels like a thumb in the nose. And my clunky clog boots, not shown, serve as a kick in the pants. Hmmm ... now I wonder if the outfit was screaming "Back off!" before I even got through the door.

Interestingly, things seem to be straightening out in life. A ballet friend remarked, "You are standing so straight and leaping like you never have before!" I guess all those strengthening exercises throughout my recovery have made me a better dancer. Who would have thought. Maybe humans are a bit like machines. Give them a bit of a thump and they work a little better.
Thank you for the spam reduction advice. If I get really exasperated, I will turn on the word verification. I hope that doesn't exasperate you in return. I want to make sure the blogging experience remains a two-way conversation!
