Wearing the Pants

Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence. ~ Erma Bombeck

Wearing the Pants

I am American. And we celebrate one of the most North American of holidays, Thanksgiving, like most everyone else—by eating turkey. Thanksgiving at my house is a very casual thing—my mom, my dad, Eshi and my family do a potluck at my house. My dad makes the turkey. My mom makes sweet potatoes and brings a pie. I make mashed potatoes and beans. Eshi is promising cranberries this year after she shuddered seeing the blob that comes out of a can. We eat, we enjoy, we laugh, and we relax. It’s the way a holiday is supposed to be—a holiday!

I think of homes where kids come home from college or grad school, bringing their changed ways, their own unique fashion and style. The first time I came home from college, my mom asked if I was severely depression—there was so much black in the wash. Now I think there would be brown too—and lots of thrift shop. I hope this look replicates that. First with the new mesh trousers from LeeZu Baxter. With their oversized baggy look and pocket watch, they are a unisex fashion statement. (They are also loose enough to allow stuffing oneself at Thanksgiving. See? I know what I am doing!)

Paired with a woven belt from a pair of boy pants I have from hiwinyu Fazuku and flats from Izzie Button, it’s a charming, almost Annie Hall look, especially with the eclectic hat Marcopol Oh is selling at L’accessoires and a scarf from Drinkinstein Sorbet.

My luminous skin has smoky college girl eyes and light lipstick from Aida Ewing. I modified a Chiaki Xue hair to fit under this cap. One thing about mesh hair—can’t do diddly with it when it comes through a hat. There is still room in the grid for modifiable prim hair!
