I bought this shirt from Goodwill many suns ago and finally got around to fitting it to me this past weekend, just in time to wear it to Mass yesterday. I loved the colors, the fact that it was reversible, and the super-nice fabric. I wasn’t in love with how beeeg it was:
So, I took out one of my fave fitted tops, traced it onto my blue/green number, put a straight stitch along the dotted line and a zig zag next to that for extra stability, and cut off the extra fabric with a pinking shears.
Unfortunately, I had to rob it of it’s reversible quality because I’m simply not good enough to know how to take it in to keep it that way. So, since I already had the above green top, blue it was.
Here’s how I wore it yesterday:
[Just call me Squints Under Cloudy Sky]
My photographer told me I’m an awkward picture taker…touche. He also batted away my idea to picture-take with the fence as the background suggesting our vehicles would be a much better backdrop (also meaning he had to take less steps to humor his crazy wife by taking her picture to put on the www)…
Top: Goodwill $2
Necklace: Ebay $8!!!!! (search “statement necklace” and China will come to your beck ‘n call)
Skinnies: Target $7
Peep Wedges: Consignment Store $5
A whole outfit for $22…not bad, not bad at all.
Putting up my link over at Fine Linen and Purple. Lots more over there!

I’ll be back later this week with a 10 month update on two little crazies and a two-tone dresser…and maybe something else…you’ll just have to come see. :)
