here is my week in review post for this week. i know it looks like i have been having a lot of four day weeks lately, but really i just had another self-imposed snow day this week and worked from home one day.
i want to talk about my outfit on thursday (the second from the right) for a minute. it is quite possibly one of the worst outfits i have ever worn. i think anyone in their right mind would gloss over it, not draw attention to it, but i'm actually glad i suffered through the entire day in that ensemble as it taught me that something about it clearly didn't work & i should quit trying (by that i mean the dress is going in the ebay/goodwill pile).
the dress hadn't been worn for nearly 3 years, and rightfully so. it's a wrap dress with too deep of a v-neckline. i attempted--badly--to make the neckline higher with a safety pin, which is clearly obvious. i put my hair up halfway through the day, which looks sloppy. yes, that is a giant hole in my tights. and the drapey knit fabric of the dress highlights lumps & bumps in all the wrong places. am i missing anything? probably. i'm not trying to be hard on myself, but i definitely understand that i wouldn't be doing myself any favors if i believed any part of that outfit to work. that's one of the reasons why i like taking pictures of my outfits everyday and why i am enjoying this "no longer neglected" challenge. who knows how much longer that dress would have stayed taking up space in my closet if i hadn't finally worn it this week and realized it just doesn't work. if anything, hopefully i can inspire others out there to pull some neglected items from your closet and give them a try or give them away. just do me a favor and don't click on the picture to look at it any bigger (oops, i know by saying that you're going to click it now, aren't you?!)
stay tuned for more neglected items next week... but hopefully better outfits!
