What I Actually Wore #0082

Serial #: 0082
Date: 12/08/2012
Weather: 16°
Time Allowed: 8 minutes

These are some of my favourite pants to wear in winter because they are made of wool and are so warm. They are so wide-legged too – it’s like wearing a blanket, and they make me think of guacho pants. I usually don’t wear black with colours, but I think this was a happy exception because a) the jumper is knitted in multi-colour stripes, b) there are pompoms on it, and c) it was new. The wool felt vintage fedora and suede shoes add some shots of colour at my extremities. 

I wore the outfit on a day I was running errands in the city, and amusingly some random African-American guy called out to me in the street in great excitement at my colourful stripes, and thought I must be Mexican because of them! I wasn’t aware that Mexicans held a monopoly on stripes, and enjoyed telling my Mexican friend the story – she laughed and agreed that Mexicans are known for their love of colour (and she is no exception).
