A Little Spring Shopping. . .
It's not so bad. The shopping I've done is fairly modest: popping into The Gap at the call of a 40% off sale yielded these two shirts, totalling under $100 together. The top is in a fresh, clean dark wash, fits slim, and promises to finally be the denim shirt that works for me. I've been promised that before, and each time eventually realized those promises were lies. If so, at least I'll get a gardening shirt, right? I'm blaming this purchase on That's Not My Age who issued this siren post not long ago. Danger lurks there -- you may end up craving some fresh denim of your own . . .
I'd similarly blame Duchesse for the white shirt acquisition. After all, she published convincing photos of illustrious women looking cool and classic and sophisticated in theirs. Another promise I should have learned to mistrust, but if at first you don't succeeed. Well, you know . . . So I'm trying again, and I must say, so far I'm pleased with the freshness of this inexpensive number which I've so far worn with a navy pencil skirt, with jeans, and open over a t-shirt and a floral pencil skirt from last year.
