So I know I posted the other day that my garage smells vaguely like rotting pumpkins (which it does) but I’ve been thinking for awhile about setting up a website or some sort of entity where I can have a never-ending garage sale, donating some of the proceeds to charity, and calling it “Clem’s Garage.” It has nothing to do with my actual garage, which does smell weird right now. (I’m thinking it’s the recycling.)
I am constantly ferreting out items from my wardrobe, which, while still lovely and functional, no longer work for me. Clothes from shows-gone-by, items that I bought on impulse but have never worn, jewelry from back in the day, things of that nature. And they all seem to have a good story to go with them. Or at least, an unfortunate photo on facebook that I had to untag.
This skirt is up for grabs.
Does $15 sound good?
Story behind this garment:
I’m a big fan of personal catch-phrases and have a fair few that I employ on the regular. Ooh, that’s a good one right there! “On the regular.” I’m going to start using that one.
One of my on-the-regular catch-phrases is “Give me a break!” said in a loud, obnoxious voice while making the face seen here in the above photo. This picture was taken during “Stay” at a hot, mid-afternoon outdoor show. It was time for a break. So I gave myself one.
And now you too can take a break in this fine black and grey mini with horizontal button and chain details, size: wouldn’t-you-like-to-know. The first person to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) can strut their stuff in this cotton/polyester blend masterpiece!

So those are the parameters of what I’m hoping will be an on-going blog series where I can tell bits of my story through the garments that carried me there, and pass along those articles to people who can use them in their own story. 10% of the proceeds from each sale will go to my favorite charity – The New Orleans Musicians Clinic. This is the clinic that treats my father and a host of New Orleans’ most valuable musical treasures. I think this will be fun!
