consider the apron

I just got out of surgery and have some extra "baggage" to carry around. Went out to a musical event last night. The inside out stussy shirt (places pockets inside, where I need them) wasn't going to work in public and I needed to come up with something.

1) Apron. Functioned but looked too weird added to big shirt + long skirt. Plus had to tie at empire level, not sure if it'd stay in place.

2) Small purse on a belt. This purse I got for African safari in 98. Has both removable shoulder strap and big loop to slide onto a belt. Swiped a belt from Severo (my belts buried somewhere). Functioned but looked like a huge goiter or deformed pregnancy. Considered naming it "Manny."

3) Chinese satin bag on belt. Perfect. Has a small strap to loop on belt AND drawstring to secure "baggage." Sort of Renaissance Faire looking.

So why "Consider the Apron"?
Exene was sporting one at the gig. She looked so cool.

Her red peau de soie tango shoes + white anklets rocked too.
Severo took some great pix. They're on my Flickr
