Just a quick note to remind everyone that the reader poll is open to vote for your favorite outfit from last month — thanks in advance!
Every year during the McKinley Street Fair in Tacoma, “Graffiti Alley” gets repainted with a new mural, to showcase live art during the fair. This results in a mural for everyone to enjoy for the next year. Sam and I knew we needed to take pics of last year’s McKinley Street Fair mural before it was painted over for a new mural. (And we’ll be back to take pics of the new mural!)
Below is the “angel wings” part of the mural, complete with halo.
It’s so much fun to pose in front of wings! Basically any pose you do looks striking against the backdrop of the wings. (And we just spotted some additional wing murals in the area, so you’ll be seeing more wing backdrops!)
I wore this outfit on a recent weekend, on our way downtown to visit the Washington State History Museum. I borrowed my husband’s Star Wars long-sleeved tee. I rolled the sleeves up a bit on the tee, as it’s a little bit big on me, and I also rolled up the ends of my skinny black jeans. My striped canvas flats fit in with the color scheme of my outfit plus provided a bit more visual interest.
I usually layer this purple-y lip stain under other lip stains, as seen here, but this time, I decided just to wear the lip stain as is.
Here is the full mural on McKinley’s “Graffiti Alley,” from angel wings on the left through to Pokemon-like figures.
I liked this cheeky fellow, with his hands on his hips. I also like that someone else went in later (it wasn’t me, I promise!) to correct the fellow’s grammar. If you look closely or enlarge the photos below, you’ll see someone wrote in an “s” at the end of the word “last,” so that it then read: “Take a picture – it lasts longer!” 😀
