Fisticuffs

I’ve always loved a good clean white button-up, but I haven’t actually owned one for at least a decade. I just can’t keep it clean enough (and it reminds me of working in an oppressive bakery). This BA grad collection from Natalia Troitskaya (found via NJAL) though has made me realize what it is that I love about the white button-up: the cuffs. And if that’s the case, I don’t even need the whole shirt, just something made of white button-up cuffs. Like a long skirt. Also, I might revive my search for a McQueen men’s tuxedo jacket so I can turn it into a shrug (notice the back of the second look in the third photo). Though perhaps that’s what I should do with the McQueen that is nearly a week into its freezing cycle. Reducing the fabric should reduce the smell, right? That’s just logical. Though at this point, I’m thinking I should probably just resell it. Any offers on a freshly cleaned size 44 wool/cashmere mid-length 2007 McQueen that is perfect other than an expensive perfume smell, some mending done in the sleeve lining (from previous owner) and a couple other small holes in the lining? Speaking of offers, I think tomorrow is the day to photograph some stuff I’ll be putting up for sale. Oh boy.
