Although, if it were possible, I would choose to associate with the Anarchist political party, I love dressing up for the 4th of July. I suppose that has to do my tendency to romanticize the WWII era, when women where realizing their worth in the game of war, and it was cool to be patriotic; the color combo is vintage in its essence. Plus, growing up in a small town of 10,000 people, Independence Day is one of only a few holidays where most people embrace getting dressed up. Seriously. Outdoorsy wear or work clothes are the day-to-day uniform here, and it gets depressing.
The above photos are some oldies of Adrienne & I at previous 4th of July parades— over 5 years ago! With July just a couple weeks away, I’m on the prowl for my next 4th of July outfit. It just so happens that Modcloth is having a 40% off summer items sale for the next 6 days (June 15th-19th), and here are my favorites from their sale:
