The wardrobe could use some help, I can just see one of those reality shows hosts showing up and saying, "everything has go to go." I'd probably agree in a heartbeat, but unless someone wants to pick up the tab for a complete makeover nothing leaves the closet without a lot of scrutiny. The green shirt ( very uninspired photos!) had a stain on it and was nearly relegated to "the at home" section of the closet which is much larger than the "okay to be seen in public" section. Now that I've tossed some dye at it I'm still undecided about it, but it's more interesting.
The orangey, red, yellow shirt with blotches of black that went blueish will probably make it out of the house at least once. (it's more redish in person.) Yes, I love shirts and practically wear them exclusively for their comfort and anonymity. Most of the year though, I wear short sleeve shirts from the men's department of which the ones that are residing in the closet mostly needed repairing or altering. Buttons were missing on some while others were so long they made me look fat and others needed to be taken in on the sides for a more feminine look. Last Monday is was very apparent that I'd put off tackling the job too long when I ended up wearing a shirt that came from the "at home section" out in public. I'm nearly done with the job and fear that I won't finish the last two alterations now that I've lost the momentum. I can't do anything with the slacks and jeans except pray for a sale ASAP. I'm not sure that I'm ready to wear capri or crop pants out of the house. (Happy Birthday Meryl Streep! You're now 3 months older than I am!)
