Jeans revealing more glittering sequins than denim, exposed swimsuits thousands of feet from any body of water larger than a toilet, bolo ties amidst tuxedos, rubber sandals amidst silk hemlines, and shorts offering less coverage than diapers.
These are unofficial Arizona uniforms. Of locales falling behind the fashion index, I happen to live in #9. (indigenous to #2).
With the full fire of summer threatening unfashionable lows in my geography, some have said it's too hot to be haute in Arizona. I accept the challenge and vow to publicly educate my fellow citizens, via a series of upcoming posts, in the art of dressing fresh in 100 degree plus weather.
