Clothing Vulture


What I Wore to Work Today: Tuesday, July 31, 2012
Shirt: My friend’s closet
Skirt: Goodwill, refashioned
Belt: Ross, came with a dress
Shoes: Payless

I periodically help one friend clean out her wardrobe. I enjoy the sense of cleansing and relief, she enjoys the organization and free assistance.

This particular button-down shirt has been in my sights for a few years now. It has tiny metallic threads running through it and a belt of the same fabric (which I’m not using in the picture). During each purge I’d hold it up and say, “What about this, I’ve never seen you wear it…” She would try it on, realize it looked nice, and put it back into the closet where it would hang, unworn, until our next cleanout.

This time she relented and admitted it should go in the giveaway pile because she simply wasn’t going to wear it. I swooped in on the shirt-carrion like a vulture. An eager, delighted vulture.
