The woman suit

It was titled “woman suit” but it was actually a floor length skirt and a long sleeve button up shirt.

A chocolate brown colour with blue and white little flowers all over it, my dad told me it was hideous.

He wasn’t wrong. When I put the top on, I looked like a frumpy business woman, and in the skirt I looked like a wannabe hippy.

I bought the woman suit anyways. I had a sewing pattern in mind for the top, which I’d been wanting to try for a while. And the skirt was a flattering cut, other than the whole floor length thing.. I felt confident I could make the woman suit fabulous.

Then I got home. Let it sit for a day, and realized it was a ridiculous buy. It cost $17.99 (outrageously expensive for Salvation Army, I figure it’s because there was AT LEAST $50 of fabric put into making it…. ) and I just didn’t see myself having the time to sew it into what I had originally hoped it would become.

So I took it back.

I’ve never done an exchange at a thrift store before and holy cow what an experience. There is no such thing as refunds at Salvation Army, and no gift cards. So taking the woman suit back was a matter of replacing the $17.99 with different objects. Does that make sense? It barely did to me either.

Housewares are SO cheap, and like I’ve mentioned before I love cups/plates, and almost anything that’s retro.

49 cent mugs, and some badass whisky tumblers.

Can't decide if I love of hate the print on these pots. They're definitely unique.....

So I replaced the woman suit with a bunch a stuff. None of it currently in rotation, I’m saving it for the post graduation move out.

What’s my parents garage good for anyways, right?…………

until next time,
