I finally got to go window shopping this weekend – I was looking for a cute top to wear out to my Brother in Law’s party – it’s been a long time since I had gone out. Ever have that realization, when you look at your wardrobe, how styles change as you get older. I’ve noticed that a lot of the shirts I’ve gotten rid of were the shirts that I used to wear to the bars.
I used to enjoy getting dressed up to go out. I was never super high maintenance, I never got super dolled up in dresses or high heels, I was more the polo, pearls and flip flops type of gal, or, in some cases, polo, short skirt and flip flops type of gal. With pearls of course. Occasionally a tank top or a glittery top that I picked up at BeBe. But there’s a key difference here. Most times, going out meant going out to meet dudes so we’d slut it up a little bit. I don’t do that anymore. My struggle is finding a cute top to go out that’s not super-skankariffic, but still looks…hot. If you get what I’m sayin’.
So now, when I go out, I have nothing to wear. This is probably the second time I’ve complained about it, but really, I fear there’s not much out there for married ladies who are not trying to slut it up a la Forever 21 style. Or maybe I just seriously lack style. Like, a lot of style, I fear, freaders, I am an imposter when it comes to style in that, I am realizing, I have none.
So I will spend the next few weeks shopping for the perfect black, non-skanktastic, going out top for my pals Bachelorette party (PS If you live in NYC and have any bar suggestions that are not too trendy and don’t charge a cover, do let me know!).
But I’m struggling. Mostly because I’m the opposite of “trendy” or “stylish”. Hell, I’d wear leggings as pants every day if I deemed it acceptable.
Clearly, this is unacceptable. I need help. And a damned black top. Halp???
