Lesson Learned

One of my favorite chronicles of constant marketeering and fine sensibility is Ready for the House. Day by day, I am consistently impressed by the scorskies this unnamed blogger with astrological sign Scorpio and zodiac year Tiger is willing to share with all of us. For example, there’s this 1940’s US Navy Uniform that packs a delightful off-duty punch beneath the cuff:

How did I ever miss thinking to attach gorgeous embroidered mermaid with flowing blond hair patches to the undersides of my uniform cuffs before? Of course, my uniform already involves too many clashing shades of orange and a significant portion of metallic gold lycra as it is, but I suspect that any given uniform stands to benefit from such an improvement. Ah, we learn so much from vintage clothing. Thanks for sharing, Mr. proprietor of Ready for the House!

    Not sure if you already know about what those are, they’re Liberty Cuffs.
