New Clothes for my New Book

These don’t look so interesting on the hangers, but they’re cute.  This first top I got from H&M for $23 (I think).  It was too long, but I’ve learned from Tim Gunn to not expect perfection off the rack, and to use a tailor.  When we pinned it up even the tailor went, “Nice!” This is my “nice” top for dressier appearances.

I got this vest from Loehmanns for $29 and the tshirt from Hanes.com for $16.  I had them send, like, five different styles and only one was truly flattering.  I will wear this with nice jeans and hopefully new, brightly colored sneakers, and I’ll dress the whole thing up with a necklace and earrings. This is a more casual outfit.

This last shirt is very deceptively simple.  I got it from Banana Republic for $39.  It’s a lot for what is essentially a tshirt, but it’s very flattering and looks dressy.

  1. Now what would Tim Gunn say about your very sad wire hangers?!! I think the top one is my favourite. Are you in a black and white phase or has it always been thus?

  2. Ha. Yeah, the sad wire hangers, it’s true. And I love color. It just kinda worked out this way this time. That last shirt I tried in the colors it came in, but the black looked best on me.
