81. Is there an article of clothing, a piece of make-up, or an accessory that you carry with you or wear every day?
I always carry Burt’s Bees beeswax lip balm. If I didn’t use it every hour I’m awake, my lips would be flaky and bloody.
This wool scarf from Turkey that my aunt brought back in the 80s. I’m rarely without it. It’s so big too, it’s almost literally a grown-up security blanket. And then I’m always equipped if I get cold (which I often do), as I can take my giant scarf off, unfold it, and voila! Victorian Grandma-style Lap-blanket (only missing a little lap dog)! It also doubles as a pillow on buses, and a picnic blanket in parks. I thought I lost it this past winter, and think I actually went through a few of those ‘Stages of Grief’.
I always have a bright lipstick- like Nars velvet matte lip in Dragon Girl- AND a light gloss -like Fresh Lip Sugar- with me, just in case. I don’t wear lipstick every day, but I always have it in case I need some Voom. I feel like a magazine.
There's always a cardigan on my body or in my bag. We are crazy people with our heaters and our air conditioners, and I always regret it when I don't have a layer to put on or take off. I especially like cardigans with pockets, not so much for putting things in (although that's nice), but more as a place to put my hands.
