Susie. San Anselmo, California. Soccer Practice. October 2014.
As you can see lately, I’m hanging out at soccer games and practices. I know my life seems like never ending glamour and jet set travel – but it’s not, well at least some of the time (i’m being funny here). I trek my kids to their various activities, hoping that maybe the inner prodigy will emerge. Liam tried fencing this week, I woke up with a sword in my face at 7:00 am.
But it’s all really fun, I meet great people and fantasize about someday having my own skills, because my kids have many. I owe that all to Waldorf, we’ve taught them nothing.
This is Susie. Susie runs a private San Francisco family foundation focusing on Mental Illness. Mental illness funds are hard to come by, and it’s refreshing to hear about a foundation working to make life better for those in need. I want to make a joke, but it’s probably inappropriate. Let’s just say, after telling Susie I see my therapist twice a week, she quickly “befriended” me and kept handing me cash.
Susie is a native San Franciscan. She grew up in the city, and lived an urban life. I love hearing stories of her artsy formative years. Attending school in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood, Susie was exposed to the bohemian movement as a young teen. It was an interesting way to see the world, and Susie now only wears Dream Catcher Earrings made exclusively by Chanel. (i’m funny, I know)
I befriended Susie, only due to needing friends in Marin County who wear shorts as short as mine, it worked and we happen to have like two other things in common. I know I keep repeating this, but the 1990’s are making a 2014 comeback – majorly. Susie looks like she is headed to Lollapalooza to hear Ani DiFranco.
Susie’s body type allows for a thick belt and shirt tucked – she’s in proportion. For short waisted women like me, it’s usually better to wear a longer shirt. If you have thick legs, show those ankles – and wear a heel, if possible.
