This weekend,  I asked Lauren to come with me to check out this furniture store Brooklyn Reclamation down the street, in prep for my upcoming move in May (don't worry, I'll still be at the Marcy Stop). Before we left Lauren's apartment, I caught her preening in the mirror. Lauren is never so happy as when she's dressed in big kid, bad-ass clothes. And let's be real, this outfit was purely for Lauren's street self esteem.

This is why it made it all the more hilarious when Lauren paused mid-stride on the sidewalk to remark with genuine horror and fear, "I'm suddenly feeling very Dixie Chicks." Clearly this did not fit into her fantasies of toughness, which I think have already been well documented on this blog.

Let me tell you, I've never laughed harder. One, because she was kind of on point. Two, because Lauren could dress in full cowboy regalia and still somehow make it look cool. I know because I tried on this exact outfit and looked exactly like a southern music back-up singer--without the irony.

xx, M

  11. Lauren looks amazing... I chuckled at the Dixie Chicks thoughts she had!! I do the same with my outfits when I get a vibe long after I've left the house. I've recently felt dressed very Downton Abbey, very Wicked Witch of the East (the one under Dorothy's house), and Amelia Earhart-like. I'm British and I'm not familiar enough with the Dixie Chicks - I just love the combo of fur, denim and leather. Great photos Micol!
