Say yes to polyester
Please excuse the Muppet face*. I was battling hormone raging pre-pubescent kitty this morning and I was probably try not to laugh as that white tried to teach me a lesson. This red skirt is in response to Sal who asked about our "happy" pieces. I am not in a bad mood today, but I thought I should wear the skirt that always makes me pretty cheerful. I picked it up for $7 in the "vintage" section at the Ragstock in Uptown Minneapolis back in 2004. It wrinkles easily, the wrap style isn't entirely secure, and the buttons look very cheap, but I love it so much anyway. It's basically indestructible.
I realize that in the past, when I've worn this cardigan, the outfit shots suggest that this is a grey cardigan, but it's actually striped!
Stripe cardigan: LOFT (consignment)
Button up shirt: JCrew (interview top from 2007)
*(A term I stole from my buddy Koo, referring to the silly look one sometimes makes in a full on shot)
