You know what I hate? I hate it when people say something was meant to be.* No, no, NO. If you want something to happen, make it happen. Don't just rest on your laurels and hope good things come to you.
That being said, I do believe this top was meant to live in my closet. I tried it on last week at ARC Value Village, and then put it back on the rack without buying. Then? I thought about it for DAYS. So when I returned to ARC and saw it hanging just where I left it... a week later... I know we belonged together forever. Awwwww, it's like twue wuv:
My favorite part are the sleeves. I like a tucked-up sleeve - I'm lazy, and the sleeve is rolling itself up so I don't have to:
The only downer? It's now too cold in MN to wear a sheer 3/4 sleeve shirt without layering something over the top. So this is what I actually looked like all day:
The Outfit Of Destiny:
Dark-rinse jean jacket, Goodwill's last massive garage sale (God, I miss those sales)
Sheer plaid tunic top, New York and Co. by way of ARC Value Village
Black leggings, Old Navy on sale for $5!
Grey OTK socks, Target for just $5!
Black leather faux Frye boots, Target from my SIL for Christmas 2010
*I was a Realtor for years, and it drove me nuts when my clients would say, "If we don't get an offer/If our offer isn't accepted, then it wasn't meant to be." NO, you dip-shits. That's when we NEGOTIATE. GAH! Your damn house ain't going to sell itself! Your damn house ain't going to buy itself! Quit being so damn passive-aggressive and work with me, people!
And that is why I am no longer a Realtor. The End.
