A SHIRT STORY

There’s a story behind this shirt and while it’s really not significant, it’s still a story. I purchased this shirt last summer during my lunch break at work because the shirt I had been wearing that day was too low cut and the pin I had securing the closure was no long doing its job. So since I had a valid reason to go on a mini shopping outing I decided to visit ZARA;  if I was going to get a new shirt to wear I was going to get one that I’d wear often, there’s no sense in investing in something you’ll only wear once. Anyway, I came across this half mesh/abstract scribble designed shirt and I just had to have it, mostly because of the fit. It’s not a crop top; it literally just fits the way a shirt should fit. Oooo! plus the sheer mesh panels give it a fun edge and a touch of sex appeal. It’s funny that I left work to get a more conservative top only to return with an equally revealing one; in my defense it wasn’t nearly as noticeable and was 100 times more comfortable. Isn’t it strange that whenever I wear this top I always recall that considerably insignificant day?  I guess clothing can do that to you, in fact one of my coworkers mentioned this week that if she has an exceptionally bad day in a particular outfit or article of clothing she stays away from it for a couple weeks—precautionary measures I guess. I kinda like how clothing can stir up emotions, or make you recall old (insignificant or significant) stories it makes it that much more powerful. Do any of your clothes hold stories?

Ooooh! Yay we made it to hump day!
