#137: Watch the Wear
On Saturday morning two of my bests and I piled into the car with our Pearl Jam and Nirvana CDs in hand, and country livin’ on the mind. We were headed toward the Berkshires of Massachusetts. On our way up through rural Connecticut we stopped alongside white-water falls, farms (not without grabbing bagfuls of fresh crop apples and heirloom tomatoes, nom…), and of course found ourselves in a few antique shops.
I found this 1930’s denim apron for a few bucks.
In that beautiful deep blue lightweight denim of the day, with blue threaded selvedge along the side edges and on the fastening straps.
By Carter’s out of Lebanon, New Hampshire.
Asymmetrical stitching on the bib pocket.
Feeling high and mighty, with hope that my hoarding days are behind me, I try to only pick up things that I can wear or use everyday. So don’t mind me when I start touting the apron around town as a dress.
