Greek Key skirt could work for a recreation...
My immediate reaction was to take a mental inventory of the piece I have, and the pieces I will need to achieve summer style perfection.
Then, what do I do on my fashion and coffee high, but head straight to TJMaxx and hope to make some sartorial dreams come true. I search, meticulously, keeping an eye out for colors and prints and textures... but the only item I find is a tweed jacket, reminiscent of the one from the first look. It's on clearance for $10, the brand is Willie Smith. I try it on, a fellow shopper tells me it looks great on me... But I don't buy it. I think of all the items I was dreaming of finding, that was probably the one I was least interested in. Where are those black and brown sandals, the cream bow blouse, the black and white printed jacket, the striped sun hat... and that damn lace top!?
I tried not to let my lack of purchases bother me. I tried to be proud, but come 1 AM I am browsing Forever 21 and filling a cart with nonsense I don't need... a navy dress with a cherry print, a striped terry blazer, a white lace skirt, a red mini skirt, just because it was $5...
I forced myself to sleep on it, and by this morning I'd talked myself out it.
But the hunt continues.
