There are a few reasons that I just cut the tags of this button-up shirt today, even though I bought it last year. The first one is that I have too many clothes (but I'm working on that). The second is that I made the mistake last year of buying a few shirts in petite. Petite fits me fine in the arms, but I don't have a petite torso. These shirts just feel SHORT on me. The last one was that even though I loved the color, I couldn't think of what to wear with it. I realized last night as I was playing in my closet that it would work well with this wool cardigan. So, here I am wearing it for the first time.
Another happy note here is that the little flower necklace here had tarnished terribly, especially on the chain above the flowers. I was about to give it to DI when I realized that I had some extra chain laying around in my jewelry making kit. So...I switched out the tarnished chain (it was pretty bad -- it had turned so orang-y it was unwearable), and tada! good as new. Well, almost. There is still a little tarnish on the back of some of the flowers, but it's not noticeable from the front.

  1. Cute outfit and really cute necklace! I would have saved it too! And ugh, how many blouses have I bought and never wore, with tags. I've stopped buying them altogether now, lol.
