    Some places (Value World) lack dressing rooms. The technique is to wear a tight tank top under clothing, then find the full length mirror in the corner and have at it. Try on a tunic and use it while trying on pants. Or hang out near the full-length formals, using them as a screen. (Yep, I would have been a hippie if I were older. Can also use the beach towel technique, seen at every cycling event everywhere.)

    Tonight I picked up a cherry red jacket-style top that could be worn to play Christmas eve or an office gig. $5. A brand new stocking that will fit over my cast, $1. A pair of slippers that I will modify into cast-friendly house shoes, $1. And a stand-on turntable thingie ($1) that swivels back and forth for exercise, so perhaps I won't need bigger jeans over the next few weeks of foot repair rest. <3 thrift stores!
