Six is enough. Maybe.

Tshirt: Target, new
Skirt: Goodwill, refashioned

I bought another black tshirt. I own six black tshirts now, all slightly different. This one has a bit of (not visible in the picture) gathering at the neck.

Whooping cough is for suckers

What I Wore to Work Today: Monday, October 8, 2012
Tshirt: Target, new
Pants: Goodwill, $1 Thursday
Shoes: Payless
Earrings: Garage sale

I had an appointment for a pile of regular basic doctory stuff for $25 copay, thanks to my health insurance plan’s coverage. Sure, they’re just doing it to encourage cheap preventative care instead of expensive treatment and crisis management down the line, which is fine by me.

I got my first flu shot because she said, “Do you want a flu shot?” and I said, “Ok”. Also, I’m 30 now and maybe shouldn’t rely so heavily on being young and fit and in denial about the reality of infectious disease. It felt like a little flame of fire shooting into my arm, a surprisingly loud pain. I also got a tetanus shot since it had been ten years since my last one. Nothing for you to see here, diphtheria/tetanus/pertussis, you better move right along because somebody got herself a DTaP vaccination!

No idea

Pants: Goodwill, $1 Thursday

I don’t remember this day. A calendar tells me it was Thursday. The picture tells me I wore pants. That’s all I got, I’m sorry.

Hawaiian shirt to clutch refashion

 

Several months ago an acquaintance-friend sent me a facebook message saying this was weird, but he knew that I do that refashioning thing and he had some bright Hawaiian shirts he was getting rid of and did I want them? Yes, yes I did. I asked him to select the two brightest and I’d pick them up at his new place the next time he and his roommates had a party.

I turned the first one, a bright orangey-red paisley print, into a clutch.

Where is the love?

What I Wore to Work Today: Wednesday, October 3, 2012
Dress: Forever 21
Cardigan: Target
Belt: Xi, came with in blouse
Shoes: Target

I bought this dress in summer 2003. To put that in perspective, the top songs from that summer included Clay Aiken’s “This is the Night”, Beyonce & Jay-Z “Crazy in Love, Lil’ Kim & 50 Cent “Magic Stick”, and Black-Eyed Peas with Justin Timberlake “Where is the Love?” I believe this dress can be considered vintage now.

Hockey lockout

What I Wore to Work Today: Tuesday, October 2, 2012
Dress: Goodwill, $1 Thursday
Cardigan: Target
Belt: Gift from Sarah
Shoes: Target

You know what I’m not doing while typing this post? Listening to a hockey game. Because the first several weeks of the NHL season have been officially canceled. There’s a lockout and when I last checked a resolution was not yet in sight. I guess it’s time to start following another sport. The Arizona Cardinals are doing quite well so far, losing their first game to the Rams after starting 4-0. The part I’m having trouble figuring out is how they can skate on the grass.

’50s hair

What I Wore to Work Today: Monday, October 1, 2012
Blouse: Ross
Skirt: Goodwill, shortened
Shoes: Payless

My hair was doing some sort of flip at the bottom, all the way around, like I had done it on purpose. I was ok with it. Also, it was funny because I don’t own a curling iron or hair spray. Are those the tools you’d use if you wanted a ’50s flip to your hair?

Shoelace upgrade

What I Wore to Work Today: Friday, September 28, 2012
Tshirt: Target
Jeans: Goodwill, shortened
Shoes: Payless
Shoelaces: Target

I need new sneakers. Not true running shoes, but casual sneakers to wear with jeans or during improv shows, preferably a color like dark green or blue, but I’ll accept brown or black. It’s harder than it sounds because I don’t wear leather, and because my entire search consists of glancing at the options during the occasional Target or Payless trip.

I bought new shoelaces to extend the life of my current pair a couple more months, since it was pale dirty then-pink-now-grayish laces that were really dragging them down.

Spider plant resurrection

What I Wore to Work Today: Thursday, September 27, 2012
Dress: Target
Belt: Target
Shoes: Target

The spider plant near my feet was $1.50 at Home Depot or Lowe’s or whichever big box store is just down the street. It was a few pale yellow squishy leaves, sitting on the left-for-dead clearance shelf. I said, “That plant can be brought back! I can bring it back!” I took it home, repotted it in the larger container the basil came in (may it rest in peace), and left it outside in the sun with daily waterings. A few months later and it’s flourishing.
