classic with a touch of trendy.
Rexburg, Idaho (a college town) has the BEST DI, because there is a good mix of real thrifty (from the old folks) and last season trendy (from the college kids)...
with my sister in laws i can really discover who i am-- style wise.
especially when i see who they are- and how uniquely different they are.
they say, i am classic with a touch of trendy.
and i like that.
i'm also the sister in law that gets handed all the cute shirts no one else can button across the chest
(if you know what i mean) that's ok... i don't mind their thrifty cast-offs
i really liked one old, 70's, secretary style shirt that i found,
this baby is authentic 70's.
it seems hand-stitched to me, but it has a tag in it so i don't know...
the consensus was that it could be cute with the right outfit and i decided to splurge
$2 later it was mine.
i couldn't stop thinking about this shirt.
wondering, could i really pull it off?
would i ever dare?
i did it.
i wore my secretary shirt today, and i (mostly) loved it.
there were a few times i wondered what i was thinking as i could sense someone's lower drifting stare...
i had a hard time deciding what to wear it with, to tuck or not to tuck...
and. the professor was no help.
he kept laughing and asking if i really was going to wear that...
and telling me i totally looked like "That 70's Show."
someday, i will be able to wear DI ruffles and NOT need to blog about it...
but till then,
and for the sake of my sister in laws,
i will share my triumph.
anyone up for a trip to goodwill?
i think i'm just getting my groove on. :).
