Unisexy’s Comin’ to Town

This season of spirited celebrations is a busy time for all of us. Cookies need to be baked, shopping needs to done, gifts need to be wrapped, cards need to be mailed, grandmas need to be called, and people need to be delivered safely to their loved ones via various modes of transportation. Just recently, Molly, her dashing dachshund Keith Richards, and I all hopped aboard ModAir to head back to Pennsylvania for some homemade pumpkin pie. And though the holiday traveling was hectic, we’re evidence that you don’t have to look like you’ve been run over by a reindeer when you arrive home.  We both packed up our presents to friends and family in a handsome Baggage Claim Tote carry-on, then flew for mile after mile in Unisex-y style.

Things got started with what I thought would be a hitch to our happy journey, but it was no disappointment to Molly, who was bundled up like a pretty package in BB Dakota’s Bahnhof Coat and the In the Loop Scarf in Midnight, when I pointed out on the arrival/departure screen that our plane to Pittsburgh had been delayed.  “I don’t mind the wait,” she said. “This way, even more people in the airport can compliment me on how lovely I look in my Loch Lomond Dress, and how I did such a jolly job of pairing it with the Forget Me Knot Heels. Oh, and how adorable my dog is, too, in his little sweater. It’ll be funsies!”

“Well that’s one way to look at it!” I remarked, in an attempt to make the merriest of the situation as I stood there in my blue twill trousers, blue checked shirt, grey knit sweater, and brown mesh scarf. “I’m just really anxious to empty out my Baggage Claim Tote of goodies into the arms of my darling dears.”

“Oh, Richard! We’ll be decking their halls with boughs of holly in no time! Meanwhile, let’s go a-wassailing through the terminal as we wait!”

So, I joined Molly in a rousing round of caroling with our fellow wayfarers, and in what seemed like no time at all, we boarded the plane. Then just a few hours later, we were snug in our beds with visions of sugarplums dancing in our heads!

Happy Holidays, Unisex-y readers!

About Richard

Richard finds style inspiration in an assortment of historical figures, musicians, and movie characters, including Doc Holliday, Tracy Pew, Han Solo, and El Topo. When not tapping at the computer keyboard for ModCloth, Richard spends his time playing music and dreaming of composing the perfect soundtrack to an epic gothic western film set on a distant, dusty planet, where the cowboys ride rocket-powered motorcycles instead of horses.
