Rebecca Davis O’Brien reflects on her attempt to sell her childhood clothes at consignment stores: http://nyr.kr/1alawGW
“What I hadn’t counted on was that our attempt to capitalize on the move would entail reckoning with not just my childhood but my fashion sense. Had Sarah and I been bad dressers? Is Velcro actually unacceptable? Is my Betsey Johnson outfit awful? Maybe I’m not Brooklyn. Maybe I’m not even Midtown East. I’m a lady driving around New Jersey with bags of T-shirts stuffed into the trunk.”
