This is one of those times.
It’s like I’m a flippin’ Xerox machine or something.
I thought this was an ok outfit. Not great, not awful.
I for sure like her shirt better than mine. I liked mine fine when I was looking at my outfit in person, but looking at it now in this picture, I’m kind of afraid I’m going to break out in a Flashdance number or something from Fame. (I’m really sad right now thinking how several of my friends reading this won’t even get those references.)
Striped shirt and tank: LOFT
Turquoise skinny jeans: Nordstrom* (Chris, they were $9!)
Brass necklace: Target
Turquoise and Brass earrings: Sam Moon
Sparkly Leopard Tom’s: Neiman’s
(The Tom’s were a Christmas gift from the in-laws last year, and I pretty much want to marry these shoes.)
*In this instance, Nordstrom happens to be code for JC Penney.
(Which goes a long way in explaining why they were $9.)
I had run into Sephora to get my favorite lip gloss, and I saw these jeans calling to me from across the store (a JC Penney is connected to this Sephora).
Anyway, the jeans are from JCP.
There, I said it.
I have two friends (I can’t mention their names here because they are in a type of fashion witness protection program regarding their connection to JC Penney), but they both have colored skinny jeans that they love from Penneys also.
And I want to know, why is it that we are fine with telling people if something we’re wearing is from Target, but we get shy at the fact that these jeans are from Pennys?
But, the fact remains, I think we should keep this just between us.
Let us never speak of this again.
