It occurred to me recently that when I buy clothes, either secondhand or new, I’m not only looking for pieces to wear to work, but for pieces that have to work hard.
What I’m really looking for is A Working Dress (or skirt or top or jacket or shoes).
The concept of a working dress hit me when I wanted to take some outdoor pictures of my crazy comfortable, wrap and go Karina Dress
a couple of weekends ago. The Teen was going to take them on the way to the mall, where we planned to look for a prom dress (more about that in a separate post, complete with The Hallelujah Chorus)
But the wind was blowing so hard, I nixed the idea of outdoor pics. I stopped to get gas, and while I was pumping it, it occurred to me that I had on a great dress for pumping gas (photo op!), and truth be told, any dress that I buy is gonna have to
|Yay, Frye boots!
pump gas (see pic)
haul kitchen trash (peee-yeeww)
shop Trader Joe’s (yaaaay!)
buy fast food to go (yuck)
scoop the cat box (double-yuck)
go to Walmart for socks (yawn)
chauffeur The Teen (James! Spader! not)
try not to be mean (in the post office line)
walk a wild dog (or two)
probably jog (wrong shoes, crap)
go to the bank (no money, crap)
pick up something rank (back to dogs)
wipe off coffee stains (“travel” mug)
survive spring rains (and wind see pic)
