Like I said yesterday, the greatest thing I’ve learned on this style journey is how to work, and re-work things. Along with that has come a new appreciation of stepping outside my comfort zone, or what I think “my norm” is.
So the other day when Minnie (like the mouse. That’s what LJ calls her….stand next to her and you’ll see why it’s hilarious), LJ and I were venturing through the good ole’ stompin’ grounds of ON, I couldn’t pass up digging through the clearance section that was an extra 50% off. Of course, the sweater I’d been dying for, but wasn’t willing to part with $29.99 for, was now on super sale for only $7. One slight issue…
It’s just a tad large
We all know how amazing the ON sizing is, and how you can always walk in, grab your size, and be sure it will fit perfectly, right?
Yeah, you can stop laughing now. So this little beauty is a XXL. I expected it to be big, but tent like is a bit more like it. So what’s a super cheapo fashionista like me to do….
Make it work!
Thanks Tim, you’re a genius
Yes, I will always need to wear a belt or tuck it in somehow, but I l.o.v.e my giant, coraly orange cozy sweater.
Sweater/Belt: Old Navy, Jeans: Gap, Undershirt: Downeast Basics, Shoes: c/o Nordstrom Rack, Bracelets: Downtown
Who cares what size it is anyway? Only I, and now all of you, actually know what size it is. Whose to say it isn’t supposed to be one of those big, giant, sloppy cool sweaters?
I like it. I think it looks good. I got a steal of a deal on it. HEY TAG, I CAN’T SEE YOU! NEENER NEENER NEENER.
