I think I'm starting to figure out this FashCon thing! High 5!! It appears if you actually take time to read the notices now and then, you may just stumble across stores you haven’t heard of containing clothes you want to own!! Who knew?? Case in point, I recently stumbled into Temple Oe’s store, Bazaar, after reading a notice that was both amusing and promised boy's clothes - this combination being rare, I immediately told Dove she could stop filing my corns and tped - - - into a furniture store - - - after some mild cursing into Dove’s ear (she likes it), I noticed a sign on the store wall promising clothes around the corner and voila! - another FashCon happy ending!!
I started off buying the pinstriped pants....I like their versatility, easy to dress down or dress up - I dig their style and I really love the hipster 60’s pinstripes. Be warned, all these pants are very low cut, so be prepared to show some arse if you’re not careful. I tried to leave after that one simple purchase (scout's honor), but then I noticed the vest with wide tie combo…with the nice subtle stripes running down the shirt's body and arms, it was screaming to be worn with my new pants - and the tie?...great big wide retro shop sweetness!! You’d think wearing Magikas “Time Has No Meaning” Bracelet (thanks Bo!) would help me be on top of the time at any point in the day, but strangely, six wrist watches all showing different times and running faster than the white rabbit's pocket watch is kind of confusing. On the other hand, there is no confusion with Jeepers Creepers' new Dublin shoes…you know you are getting quality, great looking, beautifully detailed shoes.
After wearing this combo around for a day and a half, which is a lifetime in my 10 second attention-span world, I decided to go back and add a few more Bazaarities to my closet. I had fun mix and matching my new threads together for all the world to see (or my three readers…love you guys!!). While I really do like the styles I found there, I'd really love them if the textures didn’t blur so much upon close inspection and it would be great if they came in separates with more layer options - dare to dream!! That being said, if you need me, I will be at the mirror in the washroom, carefully plucking all the white hairs off my head…….3002, 3003, 3004, 3005….
