At first glance, I love this outfit… but I’m going to give you the real inside scoop on this puppy and its emerald green misfit. Although, those of you who find bodily fluids sickening may want to stop reading now… I gotcha with that one huh? You’re all glued to your screens. Well, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
I put this on before church yesterday thinking that I usually don’t wear this shirt because it fits a bit too tight for my liking. As the night went on, all of its other flaws came rushing back to me.
Right when I got out of the car and looked down at my outfit I remembered flaw number one, the weird fabric causes a wrinkle issue. This, in turn, causes the wearer to say something similar to, “Awesome, my shirt looks like it came out of the bottom of the dirty clothes hamper and has never seen an iron in its life.”
Then, after about 2 seconds of band practice, my husband accidentally scratched me with the end of one of his guitar strings causing blood to spill out of my arm. Going to the bathroom to clean up, I found that oozing blood was the least of my problems. I had just found flaw number two… Being tight, this shirt fits VERY close to my underarms. Practicing on stage, under the heat of the lights… Well, let’s just say blood wasn’t the only bodily fluid currently flowing outside of my body, and my shirt was SCREAMING this out for the whole world to hear/see.
So, for the rest of the night I went around pulling on my shirt to straighten out the wrinkles while also trying to keep my arms at my side to hide my growing sweat-marks (which were simultaneously growing larger due to the stress and the lack of ventilation because I was refusing to move my arms). Some time around, oh 5 minutes into the night, I decided that this particular misfit is SO out of the running… and unfortunately, so is the EXACT same shirt that I bought in gray… Note to self: “Test drive clothing before you buy one in every shade!”
-The Flaw Finding Kelley
Wow, so many things to say…
- Thanks for ALL the awesome feedback on that dress guys. I love that we can be honest with each other. It was pretty split, with lots saying that I should give up on the gown and others insisting that it’s a keeper. I haven’t fully decided as of yet, but, per many of your suggestions, I did try it on with a cardigan and tights and I liked that look a lot better. So, we’ll see, maybe we’ll give it at least one try this fall/winter.
- Sorry for the short blogging break. Fall is coming and that means it is time for photos here is Phoenix. Pretty much nobody wants to endure the summer sun in Phoenix just for a few photos, and I don’t blame them. That means by the time September stops by everyone looks at each other and realizes they haven’t taken photos in a year and their family is changing! Which means the hubs and I get to have LOTS of fun making them look good 😉
