After career years in Seattle, Chicago, Washington, DC, and Los Angeles ~
I couldn't wait to get out of my suits, heels and brief cases -
and into comfy, casual and cheap ISLAND GEAR.
Carefully researching what Island Gals wore -
I vowed to join their ranks.
Without benefit of a nearby Nordstrom's
I discovered several upscale Thrift Stores right here on the Island.
Imagine - you can find 100% Irish linen shirts for $4.00!
So now I have a closet full of fab shirts for almost every occasion ~
Top them with a silky vest and scarf
Team them up with a faded baseball cap and torn jeans
~ jump in your 1987 truck and haul your junk to the dump.
There are special occasions where OLD shirts are déclassé ~
No prob ~ I still have a few serious garments to wear for dinner
at the upscale Oyster Catcher or Fraser's Gourmet Hideaway
a glorious evening at the unexpectedly professional
Whidbey Island Symphony!
