Skirt & Boots....Five Points

Fully caffeinated, I charged out of Drip coffee in Five Points and nearly smacked into this pretty combination--a floaty ruffled skirt paired with embroidered cowboy boots.
Here's another view.

I was hoping to stumble across a treasure as I visited the antique outpost at the corner of Blossom and Huger--and indeed, I did! This lovely young woman with the lyrical name had style, to boot. She and her friends were perfectly charming.

It was good to be out and about the town on a sunny afternoon. You might not have noticed, but I have been a bit indisposed and unable to update this blog. It seems I was the victim of mistaken identity; authorities detained me, believing I was a character known as "The Catnapper". Luckily, the cat-loving fiend was apprehended outside The Nickelodeon theater by a band of children--and I am now free to return to polite society.  I suppose that's what Mr. Shakespeare meant by "all's well that ends well."

Style on Ice....Boyd Plaza

Today, after bidding farewell to the Rothko exhibit at the Columbia Museum of Art, I stood out by the rink and snapped photos of the skaters going by.  What a delightful scene for a fashion anthropologist....a veritable parade of puffer vests, mittens, sweaters, and knit hats!

 This young man looked particularly handsome in a basic Gamecock hoody....
 ...these two seemed at ease on their skates....
... and here, the ever-versatile pea coat in action.
Finally, perhaps the most adorable skater of all.

Daisy & Friend....Riverfront Park

I met these two when Daisy's friend asked me if I'd take a photo. It seems this was the pair's first jog together along the city canal and the pretty young woman wanted to document it. Sweet, no? Of course, I obliged using her camera...then taking a second photo for my files--because she was the third runner I'd passed that day who had matched her neon shirt and shoes.  Coincidence or a trend?
