Tall Tuesday: Sweatsuit I

Meet the outfit that I wore when I took the first shot of the Moderna: a tall sweatsuit and sneakers that my husband believes to be Converse.

the sneakers

There are so many variations of Golden Goose sneakers that the chances of running into someone wearing the same pair are minimal. I frequently (never) get asked about whether they are worth the price. Breaking it down…

  • Golden Goose sneakers are comfortable though they required a brief break in period. I say this as someone who wore these on a two flight, half way around the world journey, that included running through the Frankfurt airport. The sneakers did not let me down.
  • Some people might find the fit initially awkward, as there is a minor lifted insole. As a result the heel of the sneaker does not rise as high as one typically expects. The lift does not take long to get used to; as an added bonus, it is leg lengthening.
  • The sneakers are 560 dollars. How did I wrap my head around that? Like all pricey purchases I make, I get comfortable with steep price tags by gaining an understanding of how many hours I have to work in order to purchase given item. I do this by breaking down salary to my post-tax hourly wage. Then I calculate the hours and ask myself if it is worth it.

the tall sweatsuit

This sweatsuit is fantastic. It is exclusively available in tall, one hundred percent cotton, and under fifty dollars. It is the same exact cut as the white sweatsuits that I tie dyed last summer, the fit of which convinced to buy the black version.

I am wearing is a US size 10 that has only seen the cold cycle washer and no dryer.
