Danbury Street Style: Marcus Dairy
Ohhh, this is like finally catching that elusive, big, beautiful fish after trying, season after season…
Introducing Faith, server extraordinaire of Marcus Dairy.
I saw Faith in this very uniform the first time I went to Marcus Dairy, last year, and of course I didn’t have my camera, and I wasn’t even sitting in her section, but I vowed I would document her style for Danbury fashion posterity.
Today, I was finally successful.
I just adore her fantastic (she called it ‘cheerful’–indeed!) plaid bowtie, and coordinating red apron. I noticed she also always has this sparkly, dangly pin on her collar.
I have several of just this type of apron in offwhite, that belonged to my great-grandmother, I guess from her days of operating the family hotdog stand/diner.
And of course, I didn’t have my camera, so these are phone-photos that are not doing her justice. But Faith was so charming, and gracious in letting me take her picture. And she told me about her mother, who ran a farm stand, but was a bit of a fashionista, and was a pioneer of mismatched, multicolor accessories.
Yes, there is a story there, and hopefully Faith will call me so I can give you a full report.
