Athens, Georgia – Easy-breezy, all-black outfit, accented with gold chunky heeled boots. The outfit at its’ base level is comprised of a structured [meaning ‘boxy”] black minidress and black opaque tights. I’m all about comfort and simplicity. Posting a few shots [taken last week] when I was out of town for Thanksgiving festivities which illustrate “The Look”.

Oh! Here are a few hand-selected records I’m listening to today:

Spirit of Ecstasy/ The Way to Nepal [1980, 2012/ Caprice] – Åke Hodell

TP [1980/ Philadelphia International Records] – Teddy Pendergrass

More Than Little [1971/ Dot Records] – Little Peggy

Somewhere in The Carolinas – Here I am. Outdoors. In a vehicle. Standing in a field. Slouching on your couch. Flipping through vinyl. Donning a favorite casual outfit.

This look consists of a black round neck tee, black high waisted skinny jeans, a pair of Chelsea boots and a black oversized blazer. I wear a fat black digital wristwatch. The blazer’s lapel spruced up, sparingly, with simple decorative pins. It’s easy. Old school artsy: All-black [or, close to it], tailored and a touch slept in.

Hand-selected vinyl for solo listening:

Organ Favorites [1957/ Top Records] – Beverly Laine + Eddie Truman

Street Songs [1981/ Gordy] – Rick James

The Sound of Philadelphia ’73 [1973/ Philadelphia International] – Various Artists 

Note: More platters were played on this day. Today’s main goal was to secure the Christmas tree and gussy it up.

Done.

Lastly…Would someone, give me a hand and please answer the red courtesy phone?!
