Do you ever think of yourself as a black and white cookie? Two separate sides of the same cookie trying to live in harmony with each other. Ah, how sweet it is! That's me today.
I'm getting ready to sing kumbaya.
Trousers – BCBG, shoes – Nine West, necklace – by me : ) , shirt – Esprit, glasses - Firmoo
Can you see that the pattern on this skirt is little arrows? How cool is that? Also…this isn't a skirt. Fooled ja! It is wide legged trousers. No joke. Super wide leg. I love it! And…it has pockets! WINNING!
This shirt was not supposed to come home with me. When I went shopping out to run errands I was wearing a dress. Everyone knows if you are a "professional" shopper you will never go out wearing a dress because that means you have to take both a top and a bottom into the change room otherwise you look like an indecisive nudist.
How can you tell what that skirt/trouser is really going to look like when you're just standing there with your bra on?
So, smart as I am, I grabbed this shirt quickly on the way into the fitting room thinking there is no way I'd want to buy it. Oh silly, silly me.
Here is a big fat hint for you ladies (and gents)…if you are trying to cut down on your fashion spending, do not, I repeat do not take extra items into the fitting room. You are just asking for trouble. You know me, I like trouble, heck I married trouble, so the top came home with me. Now it is happily living it's new life as the white part of the black and white cookie.
