The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
This BCBG Max Azria cardigan, scored from a Marshall clearance rack years ago, goes in and out of my clothing donation bag.
Out: It is the most beautiful blue cashmere mix, and I watched it like a hawk until it slowly dropped into a price range I felt was reasonable, like under $15.
In: I cannot figure out how to tie the dang thing. It’s short in the back, really long in the front, and has a belt firmly attached to a gathered waist in the back. If you know how, please, please, please tell me.
Out: It makes me eyes look really, really blue. bats eyes. ridiculously blue, seriously.
In: I mistakenly wore royal blue tights with it once on the blog, and my sister has still not stopped calling me Smurfette. I conveniently cannot locate that post.
Out: I adore it, even if I do look like Smurfette or a Japanese lady of the evening. see below.
In: I just discovered that tying it in front like I did today is the same way a prostitute masquerading as a geisha signals her real career, by tying her obi in front.
I asked a co-worker if she knew how it should be tied. Then we went through all the possible ways, like six, which I should have photographed. She said keep it.
But I don’t think I’ll be tying it again like this in the future…
