Seven Random and Weird Things

I’ve been memed by Tracee over at So Sioux Me and asked to post seven random and weird things about myself. In keeping with the theme of TWM, I’ve gone to my closet for inspiration. (And just so you know, this is our storage closet, not the closet I get dressed out of every day.)

  1. pirate dressI’m very proud of this dress because I made it. It’s the most complicated sewing project I’ve ever completed. I made it for the annual Halloween Pirate Pub Crawl we do with our friends.
  2. 100_0602.jpgYes, I own an ugly Christmas sweater. This one is vintage 1989. You never know when it will come in handy!
  3. 100_0604.jpgAn authentic Giants jersey from before the last uniform redesign. My sister and I were big fans back in high school.
  4. 100_0603.jpgA vintage leather minidress filched from my mom’s costume closet. My mom did costumes for a lot of our middle school plays so people gave her all kinds of interesting old clothes and jewelry.
  5. 100_0605.jpgThe crazy tie-died shirt I bought while in college at Sewanee. I remember wearing this to my initiation into Milliways (a drinking club) on Spring Party Weekend.
  6. 100_0608.jpgThese are my "skinny jeans." I bought them last year when all my other pants were too baggy and I wanted something fitted. Since then, I have gained ten pounds so they hang in the storage closet. But mark my words, one day I will fit into them again!
  7. 100_0611.jpgThe red satin cocktail dress I bought while on a business trip in England in 2000. This is what I was wearing the night I got the infamous updo. This is just one of the many dresses in my collection, which really deserves its own series of posts. I’ve been collecting dresses since high school.

  3. Yes, the club was named after the restaurant in Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. It was called the E. B. Milliways Society and our signature drink was the Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster.
