$1 Thursday: “My husband is running for senator”

What I Wore to Work Today: Mon, Jan 24, 2011
Cardigan: Target
Blouse: Goodwill
Skirt: Goodwill, refashioned
Belt: Xi
Shoes: Shoe Pavilion

I started getting sick on Tuesday and spent most of the night with a 103.4 degree fever.  I missed three days of work, burning my paid time off with stupid illness instead of gallivanting around St. Lucia or something.  I’m back now and I’m regaining my strength.

The dollar day at Goodwill is fantastic!  I bought this pink  suit and ruffled armpit-centric blouse with satin bow for a buck each.  “Dry Clean Only”?  Into the washer you go!  As much I get a kick out of the polyester-y pink tweed that says “while my husband is running for senator I sit on two charity boards and reminisce about when I was still in the corporate world”, I don’t think I’ll be able to do anything with the jacket and it will be donated again.  Its collarless v-neckline does nothing for me in person, although isn’t so terrible in the picture.

    Glad you’re getting better. One must wonder about keeping the jacket for some costume party tho….
