Clothes Chatter

April 17, 2009 Posted by Vaire

This morning I realised that I have A) three hoodies and B) all of the hoods on them them have liripipes. Talk about a fashion detail from 14th Century being resurrected in the 21st!

It is interesting that the modern designers have adopted this particular detail. Probably unknowingly, but still... The funniest thing is that I didn't even consider the liripipes to be anything other than cute detail when I bought the hoodies.

I need another pair of trousers. No, I haven't shrunk out of the current ones, but I'd like to have more than one pair in the rotation. I have two pairs that fit perfectly, but one of them has chains on that are not removable. It's not a big problem to wear to work occasionally, but not every other day — I jingle too much and I don't want to inflict that on my colleagues that often. I'd like to find another pair of black trousers with cargo pockets and wide legs. Without chains or with removable chains.

I need a new shoes too. My current pair of cloth shoes with bats on has developed holes in the fabric of the uppers. I have clogs as well, but I've worn them so much I'm tired of them. They are too high quality to toss, but I want to wear something else for a change. I'd like to find another pair of fun cloth shoes and black platform clogs for this summer's rotation.

Other than that, I'm happy with my current style. In fact, I'm happy to have a style again. There were years when I bought clothes only to protect myself from the elements, regardless of how they looked. Nowadays I try to buy pieces that fit in with the other clothes I have and present a cohesive image.
