What I wear, when I wear it, and how it works on my bike
A clothes moth lives about three weeks. The female moth lays 40-50 eggs (although she can lay hundred) which hatch within 4 and 10 days, depending on temperature and humidity. The larvae may stay caterpillars–which are the beasts which eat clothing and other fibers–for up to 2 1/2 years. The pupation phase lasts 8 to 10 days in summer and 3 to 4 weeks in winter.
The temperature has not yet turned yet and I don’t yet need to bring cooler weather clothing out, which is good. Nonetheless, I bought a felted skirt in a lovely wine color at Uniqlo, as long as a transtitional ponte dress with a t-shirt for underneath.
But in exciting news, I used some of my remaining Fluevog winnings to buy these beautiful Ella Bakers, made from a delicate Italian leather that features real dried flowers underneath a thin layer of clear patent. They are far from practical, but beautiful and quite a pick me up.
Otherwise, I’m just cycling through the same five things, wishing I was not afraid to unpack the rest of my clothes.
