2017 best in show

All I’ve got to say, folks, is what a banner bloody year it was.

Yes, I follow the news. We’re all watching the same dumpster fire. But the personal isn’t always political; I’m proof positive of that. 2017 was formative for me in so many ways. Personally, professionally, academically, creatively — I got that much closer to my final form. This year I started museum school and finished my first semester with a perfect 4.0. I wrote my first article for Racked (which was touted in the New York Times!). I taught historical sewing at the Heritage Winooski Mill Museum and was featured in my local paper for it. I drafted a Belle Epoque walking suit and wore it to lecture at the Springfield Steampunk Festival. I got engaged!

This year was filled with feathers and rayons and fabulous brooches. With museums and Manhattans and the cutest ring you’ve ever seen. I’m hoping, in 2018, for more of the same and then some. Without further ado, here are my top ten outfits of the past year.

I aspire to be a bright-eyed girl in a big city, even though I wear glasses and live in what amounts to a hole in the ground.
