‘I Mean What’s a Protest Outfit?’


Occupy Wall Street protester Liza Tichenor, 30, Master of Arts student at N.Y.U.: “I’m wearing heels and they’re really comfortable. I kind of didn’t plan to be protesting. I mean what’s a protest outfit? Like in case you get maced or arrested? You have to think about the elements and the forces that come up against you. The pencil skirt is vintage I got at a thrift store. My gauzy shirt I just got the other day and I’ve worn it maybe four times already. The sunglasses are Michael Kors.” [NYT] Earlier: If You Haven’t Been Dressing Up to Protest on Wall Street, You’re Doing It Wrong
