Yes, and I fully expect to be one of the boxcars . . . .

I'm a New England WASP - am I not forbidden by law to have sprezzatura?

I don't know.


I am taking it as best "out there" outfit with some classic elements......

I guess this is a good chance to bust out my too short blackwatch pants again.

Yes, you have sprezz. You may be a New England WASP but you could be mistaken for a Jewish Bolshevik. That's a good start, plus you accessorize more than the Pope. Your complexity will give you an upper hand in this challenge.

I am either going down in flames, or out in a blaze of glory.

Oh, great - I've just put the comparisons to Lenin to bed, now you're dragging up Leon Trotsky
.

I promise not to wear the papal tiara - unless it coordinates with the rest of my ensemble.

En garde!
