Damn, I hate that store. Or maybe it's just my willpower. I tried on black pants. Oh, wait. Shoes first. Found a pair of Dansko sandals!! Also a comfy pair of Clark's sandals, and a low-heeled pump that would be perfect for trying on black pants with. Back to trying on black pants. In addition to the great-for-work basic black pants, I tried on a pair of OMG-I-look-hot-in-these black pants from Charlotte Russe. What was I thinking?! Well, they were just in the pile of black pants, who knew how fabulously un-work-wardrobe they truly were.
Well, fabulous black pants stayed on my body while I went back to the clothing racks to find a shirt to wear with them. And here's the part I hate: I'm a person who sews. I can mend things. I can restyle things. Therefore, thrift store clothing with little "problems" can become my newest project. I'm so bad: at least 50% of the clothes I buy at thrift stores need some form of alteration before I can wear them.
Among my $30 (after the half off) worth of purchases were two blouses with unwearable sleeve issues. Here are the "before" pictures:
And again, can't raise arms because of the tight gathering on the sleeve band.
