And, I Told Everybody
Normally, when I get to work and discover my clothes are inside out, my shoes don’t match, or heck yeah, my skirt’s on backwards, I sheepishly slink into the loo and make things right.
Today, when peeps said, “I love your new sweater!” I promptly announced, “This is an old sweater on backwards!” And then everybody had to have a closer look. I also added that my necklace is 20-year old Ann Taylor, and my oldest, The Graduate Student in Costume Construction, left the black pumps at my house about five years ago.
This girl cannot take a compliment.
Where did I get the idea to give a rather boring sweater new life? From The Karina Chronicles’ recent post “Clickity Click!“. (I tried to cool down the “party in the back” for work by pairing the sweater with a matching camisole.)
|Loft sweater (clearance last year); Loft skirt (clearance last year); Ann Taylor faux pearls (circa early 90s); AK pumps (left at my house)|
|Button up first, and then slip over your head.|
|Swingin’ in the wind. Man, was it a cold day here in NC.|
Have any of you tried wearing sweaters or blouses backwards?
