Thrift or Theft?

Golly men have long shirt tails!   I wore this to work Wednesday and numerous times had to use the ladies room. That's a whole lotta shirt tucking let me tell you!  I did not enjoy it. ha  I do love the colors of the shirt though so sacrifices had to be made.


 Thrifted Items:
Jeans $9.99 Tommy Hilfiger (Value Village)
Tangerine Blazer $4 Norton McNaughton (Value Village)
Navy/Gold Bracelet $2.80 (Value Village)
Dark Brown Alligater Patterned Mules $9.10 Madeline Stuart (Value Village)

  3. Yumm! That soup looks delicious.
    I know what you mean about shirt tucking...but maybe you can find a reasonably priced tailor to customize the shirt so you won't have to tuck so much!

    1. It wasn't a "painful" sacrifice, just time consuming, so it was ok. ;)

  5. So funny! And then you want it to be tucked in evenly which adds to the challenge. Great colour combo!!

  6. Rules to live by: Always check your family's donation bags. That shirt is brilliant. Keep it. Maybe hem it?

    1. Good idea. I have other men's shirts that I've thrifted and they usually don't fit at big. This was super duper long. Hemming is a good idea.

  7. The shirt is a great match! I keep one or two men's shirts, but generally wear them with the shirt tails out.
