Today I wore yet another thrift shopping find.
This oversized black blouse, which is actually a size 14, but as soon as I saw it, I knew that styled the right way it could be a great dress.
I tried it with a thick, black tweed belt that cinches right in the middle of my waist.
Too much cinch for such a gauzy fabric.
Tried it with a thick black leather belt with silver studs.
Too much black and the studs made me look like I was trying to be 16 again and going to CBGB's.
Then I grabbed a silver chain belt, bloused the top out around it and went to inspect myself in the mirror.
I looked like a pirate.
Unfortunately, I was doing all this "experimenting" this morning, with not a lot of extra time to get to work.
I quickly remembered this sweater vest hanging one of the closets.
Despite me initially thinking I was going to look a little too "boho" for my taste, I think it worked out just fine.
And I didn't look like a swashbuckling pirate all day.
