Because Grace’s look book is inspired by a place that holds nostalgic memories for me I named it after a song that both reminds me of those places and fills me with those same feelings—”Buffalo Gals”.
(Don’t worry if you haven’t heard it. It’s old…like written in the 1800′s old. You may have heard it in the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life”…I haven’t. I haven’t seen that movie…I know that seems impossible, but it’s true…and a story for a different post. Anyways, if you want to hear a version of it HERE is one of my favorites. It’s a live version by Bruce Springsteen.)
So, let’s see now I’ve told you about the colors and the name now let’s talk about the material.
My Buffalo Gals Look Book uses mainly 3 different fabrics:
That’s right I said POLYESTER.
Let me say it again P O L Y E S T E R.
You all know about my love affair with polyester so you must have expected at some point that I would begin posting about it…and that day is today.
Now, I know what you are thinking, and you are right…kind of. Rust and velvet with brown and polyester?
Yes, that’s weird.
I won’t deny it.
And I’ll admit that many of my looks are exactly what would be worn by the love child of Peter Brady and Blossom.
But that is the way that I like them.
And Grace likes them to.
And maybe, just maybe, you’ll feel a little of the love as well.
I can’t wait to show them to you.
