I got teased at work today by the bosses for my excess of color! I didn't feel like explaining to them (dressed in varying shade of grey, black and beige) that I wasn't dressed crazy colorful to make a statement*, but because I was cold and doing a Made in USA project. Being cold, I had to put on my warmest (and brightest) jacket with pants (no skirts today!) to stay warm-ish. And no, the sandals did not keep me warm, but my other shoes made me look like I was hitching up my pants for a flood.
*...Actually, I take it back. I do dress this way to make a statement. The whole project is a statement. If I'm dressed in weird outfits, it's partially my taste, and partially because it's not as easy to have a versatile wardrobe only Made in USA, unless you are wealthy, or sew all your own clothes (in which case, one must have MUCH time on their hands).
My friend, Amber, knows all about my cold toes and boot woes. She just texted me saying that http://www.shoebuy.com/usa-womens-shoes/p3.htm has Made in USA shoes. The link here goes to women's Made in USA shoes, but to narrow the search, just type "Made in USA" in the search bar! I might get these below!
PS. 15% off today for Veteran's Day on shoebuy. I didn't get the day off work, but I can get 15% off shoes!
Hello! I'm a 30 year old gal with a liking for doing year long projects. I've done a year without any form of chocolate, a year without coffee shops, and 5 years without gum (and I LOVE chocolate, coffee shops, and gum)! A year wearing only American Made should be the hardest yet, though*.
