What I Wore to Work Today: May 24, 2012
Blouse: Xi, new
Skirt: Goodwill, shortened
Glasses: Lenscrafters, Tory Burch
I browsed through a few stores while waiting for my new glasses to be ready. This sea foam green chiffony blouse with little pink flowers called to me. The ruffled detail at the top reminded me of an Elizabethan ruff, and yet I still wanted it. The bottom of the blouse is elastic and made the shirt pouf out in an unflattering manner, and yet I still wanted it. I said, “Ok, I’ll buy if it’s $13 or under”, and when it was $15 I still wanted it.
I decided to stop wasting time debating and I never looked back.
