The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Remember last week when I was rattling on about shopping my own closet? Well, it was too much fun, and almost free if you don’t take into account I’d already paid for these mostly unworn garments once. Most of these better dresses came from Steinmart’s 80% off the final clearance racks, so they were purchased at better thrift store prices (like $10-$12 each) to start with. I’m so
miserly cheap thrifty.
This is my oooh-la-la dress. I wore it once on the blog with faux pearls and one of my Grandma Jackets (the one from Anthropologie).
The Absent-Minded Professor remarked that I looked like Barbara Bush in the outfit.
When he saw my face, he hastily added, “But much prettier.”
Too late. Into the consignment closet the dress went.
I decided to give the poor dress another shot sans faux pearls and grandma jacket. Now I love it, because all the twists and ruching give some oooh-la-la to my otherwise straight pencil figure.
Has your significant other ever said anything about something you were wearing that made you donate or consign it, due to the less than stellar response?
P.S. I will be catching up on you guys’ blogs this week! Can’t wait!
