And by the way. I want fashion to include more concealment options!

Recently the weather here in Philadelphia-and-environs finally got cold. I know, it held off for a long time–earlier this month, November, I was out in the yard talking to my cousin Jennifer on the phone about ripe tomatoes STILL growing in my yard (she didn’t put any in, in Alabama this year, because of all the traveling she and her husband did over the summer) but when it’s cold, and my hair’s this short, the ears scream and complain. So wearing these pashminas my wife’s given me for holidays the last couple of years and really wrapping up in them, it got me fantasizing….why can’t modern contemporary progressive American women wear things that cover us up? Why can’t that be just another option, like tights, pantyhose, or kneesocks with pants? Flats, pumps, or boots? Fashion is way too rigid. I wanna see professional ladies be able to wear veils, hijab, all manner of sheltering items yet to be invented, where we’re covered up, and thus getting to think about what we’re doing rather than people–many of whom probably creepy people–looking at us!!!
