I have started to look with serious intent at the possibility of finding a tailor. Not that I want to go "all bespoke, all the time," but there are certain pieces that I want that just aren't mass-produced in my size, assuming they're mass-produced at all. mammallamadevil has corralled her mum into trying her hand at a vest or two for me, which is much appreciated, but tailoring is something that's notoriously tricky to do from the far side of the country. I really should find a local for this task.
While laurie_robey and I were taking our morning constitutional around the building today, I happened to spot a guy on the far side of the parking lot wearing a long-sleeved white dress shirt and a knit sweater-vest. Argh! Envy. If I was wearing that today, I'd be lying dead in a pool of my own perspiration. As it is, I've got on a short-sleeved shirt, have a fan blowing on me, and I'm still uncomfortably warm.
I wonder if there's some way to reset your internal thermometer the way light treatment resets your internal clock? I want to be one of those people who's always saying "Ohmygawd it's FREEZING in here!" so I can dress properly and not die from it.
