WIWTWT: Aug 26, Eulogy for a blouse

Blouse & tank top: Old Navy
Skirt & belt: Target
Shoes: Shoe Pavilion

I’m downsizing my closet and seeing these pictures has solidified that it’s time for this blouse to go.  I’ve enjoyed wearing it over the years and I still like it, even though it doesn’t do me any favors really, I just don’t love it anymore or feel great in it.  Time to move on.

I remember when I saw it on the Old Navy clearance rack maybe four years ago.  I kept going back to it, even though I couldn’t see myself wearing a sheer secretary blouse at the time.  Or any blouse, really, a blouse was something my mother would mention occasionally when I was growing up and was irretrievably dated, like rouge or nylons.

My shopping partner told me to buy it, that I clearly wanted it and would find ways to wear it, and if I didn’t it was on clearance for something like $6 anyway.  He was right, of course.

You have served me well, sheer secretary blouse.  I wish you only the best.
