The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
You guys, I think I did it.
What, satisfied The Man’s dress code?
Wore J. Crew for the first time.
That’s how poor I normally am. No J. Crew for me. I don’t even look at the catalogs. And this was kind of an accident. After I greatly admired my friend Megan’s new-to-her yellow skirt, and moaned
a lot a bit about how I could not find a great yellow skirt in my price range (I did send Megan the link to the yellow skirt ideal in my head, which seemed to be this $600 J. Crew suede pencil skirt), she replied with some eBay links for previously owned yellow skirts in my size.
While Megan is Mistress of eBay, I’ve never gotten a single item I bid on. So Megan told me how to do it, and I scored this awesome yellowy gold J. Crew skirt from a seller that was getting rid of all her size 4 stuff. The skirt is way prettier in person that it was in the eBay photo. I wish I’d bought all of her skirts, but I only got just the one.
What was really weird is I decided to pair it with the gingham button front shirt I scored at a MegaThrift 50% Off All Clothing sale for $3. I’d seen gingham shirts on other style bloggers, but I’d forgotten mine until All Buttoned Up week.
So I was gobsmacked when I took a quick peek at the label, and it says, “J. Crew.” It’s two sizes bigger than I normally wear, but it’s soft and super silky, and I love it and might wear it EVERY SINGLE DAY.
Please help me out, guys. What is up with me and Donna Reed?
