My Kay Look
No one else in the walking group that I met up with last Saturday at the National Cathedral other than me had on 2 inch black suede boots, a paisley corduroy skirt [I made] nor a short little sweater over a beige blouse. I topped the outfit with a black wool sweater/jacket that complimented the outfit.
My hair and makeup– similar to the photo in the sidebar. The other walkers, a bit more casual. Sneakers, jeans, etc. I never feel self conscious about not having on the same type outfit as others in my outing group. I have always been this way. If Darnetta is available– ask her. I do not hold it against you that my mother was not outfitting you from the day you were born. It is second nature to me.
The outfit was causal for me– the blouse worn on the outside of the skirt.
Here are two of many suits I own that I wore to the office. The olive green suit has a double breasted jacket with a long skirt with many pleats. I have olive green pumps that match perfectly. I wore it with a beige silk blouse.
The other suit has a tunic— and flatters my figure. The surprise? The print. I hardly ever buy or wear prints. The plain black pencil skirt that came with it– comes to the knees and the outfit looks great with off-black stockings and black suede pumps. Both very conservative outfits. These are outfits I would have worn to a meeting.
I dressed like Kay Bailey Hutchinson when I was in my twenties? Yes, and I even wore clip on gold earrings that were not too big– and a watch. No other jewelry or accessories. I think less is more– and my hair and makeup tended to add the youth factor. The difference– I would have had sun glasses rolling into the Pentagon or the NAVSEA office and not reading glasses. What is my point? Pentagon– I am tired of “my secretary”– irritating me. Who does she look like? The Kay type that does not understand no. I said no.
My mother found a good deal at Walmart once. I treadmill a lot and can always use more biking shorts for this purpose. I like plain black. Her good deal– two pair of Chrissie [three’s company] type hip hugger shorts with white stripes down the side. All I need now? Two ribbons for my hair– some pantyhose and a pair of knee socks. Beggars can’t be choosy? I do not pay recruiters. Government types with SUVs do not get it. These are the same people blocking my communications. That Kay type should go find a welfare case that does not have suits like hers. I also already know how to use Word. I am a power user. I do not need to learn it.
I am not moving to wrangler– and I am tired of the “Kay type” thinking she is doing me a favor. My mother may have let that woman cut in front of her– I am not. Is everyone clear?
