Life at the bottom of the Fashion Caste

Mother Knows Best

This is what I wore on a recent day trip to Marquette, Michigan. I’d never been to Michigan before and we didn’t get to spend much time there but Marquette seemed like a sweet port town with tons of cute shops and old historic buildings and houses. We were lucky enough to find a great spot right on Lake Superior to take these photos, just LOOK at that huge barge loading dock (or, the “corridor of doom” as P so aptly described it). Very industrial-chic or something.

Anyways, here’s what I wore: Wool sweater (thrifted, vintage), Floral trousers (stolen from my mother, particularly her 90’s business-lady wardrobe), Wedge booties (thrifted, Nine West), Black leather belt (thrifted), Basketball champs medal/pin (vintage, from great grandmama), Bracelets (thrifted, thrifted, and American Eagle (?))

Until next time,

    • Unfortunately, no. But I saw it in all of it’s Christmastime glory! It was totally decked out. I’ll go back someday for a respectable amount of time and make sure to check out all of the awesome shops I saw. Thanks so much for taking the time to comment!
