OK. I did not wear the Sparkle Butt pants. I was a victim of my own procrastination. Don’t act like it’s never happened to you!~ I spent the AM having donut holes and watching TV with my husband. Nice and lazy. Then I went over to Tina's to use her washing machine to RIT dye some things. And while we did, we went thrifting. By the time I got home, my husband informed me our dinner dates would be arriving at 6:30. And it was 5:30. So I didn’t have much time to get dressed*
Anyway, long story shot(er)…NONE of the tunics or shirts I wanted to wear with the leggings were clean or pressed. So I had to come up with a new plan. I’m sorry. I still adore them and am going to launder everything I own and clean up the closet this week, so I have clothes again. I tend to let it get pretty desperate before I do, because I’m lazy. But we’ve been over that before.
ANYWAY. I ended up wearing this:
That jacket? I thrifted it and a sequined top with Tina. It was half price day, so they were only 5 bucks each. And I die for this jacket. I sang a tiny song in Salvation Army about how I “like it shiny” and Tina did not even react. This tells me she and Rand must be JUST as weird as Nate and I.
It is dry clean only, so I just Febreeze-ed it, wiped the inside down with a wet towel and called it a day. I totally understand if that grosses you out, but if I have to pay another $5.00 to get it cleaned, it sort of ruins the fun for me. I’m sure I’ll have it cleaned at some point but by then it will just be another item of clothing I own that needs dry cleaning. Do you have newly thrifted dry clean only purchases like jackets cleaned before you wear them?
Anyway, I loved this look. After I got dressed I pretended I was leaving and told Nathan “OK, so I’ll be back in a bit, I’m off to my Dynasty audition” because that jacket is so over the top.
I even wore fancy shoes. I don’t normally. I don’t know what my deal is, but I almost never wear satin or suede shoes. I own them, I just don’t wear them. But I thought “Oh come ON, you have to wear them at some point!”
Of course then it rained all night, and I also scuffed the toe. Classic Erin. It was OK though, the rain didn’t do any damage and the scuff? I totally Sharpie-d it away.
I failed to get a close up of the Talonalia necklace on the new chain, but I am wearing it. I can’t seem to take it off, I just love it!~
*Dude. On a weekday morning, I can get dressed in 20 minutes with no prior outfit planning or anything. Hair , make-up and all, but on a weekend? I swear it takes me 2 hours to get ready to go out. And I don’t look that different than I do weekdays. IDK what the deal is. It’s a random fact of life.
