Shoes: Thrifted – Jeans: Old Navy – Sweater: Thrifted (Similar) – Button Down: Thrifted – Necklace: Gift from Mother-in-Law
I know I just wore this sweater and posted an outfit containing it last week, but I love it so much that I pretty much have to force myself NOT to wear it every day. But it’s hard! I mean it’s just so stinking comfortable, and I have no self-control when it comes to comfy clothing. So, I stared at it for a while in my closet on Tuesday, then I sneakily put it on, and right before I was about to give myself a lecture for wearing this sweater too much, I remembered that it has a funny story connected to it that I have yet to tell you. It was decided, I HAD to wear it again so that I could provide you all with a good ‘ol chuckle.
So, here goes.
While at the thrift store (the way any good silly story starts), grabbing up this beautiful peach of a sweater, I overheard two ladies talking. Okay, okay, I was eavesdropping. ANYWAY, these ladies were standing about 10 feet away from me at a mirror outside of the dressing room, and they were trying on clothes OVER their current outfits to avoid waiting in the dressing room line (smart broads).
Now, before we go any further, I should tell you that these ladies were about 80 years old. And with that out of the way, here is what I heard:
Lady 1: “This top is fantastic, if only I could get it over my magnificent succulent breasts!”
Lady 2: *Laughing* “What?!”
Lady 1: “What? That’s what my husband used to call them, my ‘Mag Sucks’!”
Lady 2: *Laughing* “Oh… goodness!”
Lady 1: “Well, these clothes are all so great, they make me want to go party!”
At this point I had to quickly walk away to hide my obvious laughter. I hope I’m JUST like that when I’m eighty.
