So many ways to express who we are…

My friend, Pattie Gerrie, has a way of creating an entire picture with how she puts together her attire.  Every detail of her outfits will relate to the story she’s telling that day in who she feels like being.

In the picture above Pattie is picnicking at the Gatsby Summer Afternoon.  Most other women were wearing organdy or chiffon, flowered dresses but Pattie had on Eastern European clothes from the 1920’s.

Pattie enjoys collecting things she loves.  On this day she’s wearing her collection of cameos.

Ethnic is a favorite of Pattie’s.  She loves things that have the soul of the creator in them.  She loves vintage but will also go with quite contemporary worn in a way that can’t be recognized.

Here I am with Pattie at the Carnaval Festival in San Francisco.  Pattie has been instrumental in bringing the Mexican dog, Xoloitzcuintli, to march in the parade.
