*definitely* more casual than my getup from yesterday…hahaha! so, after going to a few of these, i think i finally found the trick to convention dressing. you move from room to room & from inside to outside. rooms can be stuffed full of people & unbearably filled with the stench of sweaty humanity, then you’re in a bigger hallway that’s virtually empty & the AC is cranked to freezing. it’s warm inside & then windy & cold outside. yesterday’s outfit was big, with lots of fabric, but billowy enough that my clothes weren’t really touching (i.e. suffocating) my body. plus that dress had cutout holes running down the sleeves. so, same for today. i’m wearing a thick sweater which is almost like a dress on me, but it’s so holey that i was warm when i needed to be & cool when not. make sense? maybe not. it sure did work for me though! i guess what i’m trying to say is if you’re going to be in schizophrenic temperature conditions, long sleeves + lotsa fabric + holes = thumbs up!
on a side note, this michael kors sweater i got at a heavy discount from the now defunct tratutti. it was new with tags $295 & with the going out of business sale, was a mere…wait for it…$17! i know, what a power buy huh? i just felt i had to pay homage to tratutti, one of my fave online (& local) consignment stores…now very much missed :(
on another note, check out this GINORMOUS hello kitty tote bag i scored on day 2 of the convention! there was a booth there that if you bought a $20 t-shirt, this was the bag the t-shirt came in O.O it’s beyond awesome. i don’t even know how i’ll use it IRL O.O it’ll be my new panic room when the zombies attack…hahaha!
after the convention, MDH & i ran some errands around the city before heading home. one of those stops was ladurée on madison for some yummy french macarons! i thought comic con was a shitshow, but arriving at ladurée 1-1/2 hours before closing time was the shittiest of shows. the line extended halfway down the block (and you know how long a new york block is) plus it moved slooooow. it was a rough 1 hour wait, but i treated it like my voodoo doughnut wait in portland. some things are just worth it! well, worth it for the first time. would i do it again? probably not. there are enough places here in boston for me to get my macaron fix. good thing my outfit theory still proved correct here. even with the drop in temps to the 50s & the warmth of the sun waning, i was still good & at least not freezing freezing during that long hour wait outside. yeah…functional indoor/outdoor dressing skills…i haz it! that…or i’m just too lazy to carry a light jacket around…bwahaha ^_^
