Hello seersucker, goodbye summer

Tuesday, September 2, 2014 by Elizabeth Pagano

Though City Council slogged through a lengthy agenda at its Thursday meeting, there was time for a bit of festivity and to make a fashion statement. “In the normal world, it’s devastating if you show up wearing the same outfit as somebody else. And I’ve been very careful that didn’t happen. But it was just time to celebrate the end of summer,” said Council Member Laura Morrison, who was joined by fellow Council Member Kathie Tovo and several staffers in wearing seersucker at last week’s meeting.  Traditionally, seersucker season ends on Labor Day, making Thursday’s meeting the last opportunity this year to wear the tropical fabric in any official capacity. The fashionistas also remind us to to put away those white shoes until next Memorial Day.
