Elegantly Costumed

This display of gowns in black, orange, and white replaced the familiar witches, pumpkins, and ghosts of other store windows with costumes of an elegant sort. A song by one of my favorite musicians has a lyric about "calloused men in business costume speak computerese." We all wear costumes of some sort most days, whether we're soccer parents in sneakers, artists, medical workers, industrial technicians, skilled tradespeople, teachers, attorneys, beekeepers, or bikers. One might think twice about wearing one of these strapless numbers to a Halloween ball in Seattle where the temperature dropped to below freezing last night and the night before.

she had the thunderbolt (good initially for me; O)) for the white dress.

Not what I would think of for a Halloween display...too cold for a strapless costume, I guess Long johns underneath would help.LOL
