Believe it or not, this may be the most expensive outfit I've worn on this blog. And it's completely the fault of the blouse! I got this blouse over a year ago at White House Black Market. It had an elastic drop waist band at the time...since then I've done a waist band-ectomy and removed it! I felt sooooo pretty in it. The champagne color, the silk, even the pirate collar. So when I forked over $80 (pause for effect) for this bad boy, I felt like I was making an investment that would pay off HUGE. Do you know this is only the second time I've worn it? In fact, I almost put it in the eBay pile. But I do still love that color!
Which reminds me now why I don't spend that kind of money on clothes. Basically, if you figure out $ per wear, I've paid $40 each time I wore this top. Turns out it was NOT a good investment. I have items in my closet that I've spent a couple of dollars on and love and wear more than this top. I think that I'll stick with my thrifting. Although, I love how this outfit looks and feels.....I don't love it $120 worth! (The shoes were $40 and sooooooooo worth the money!!)
