Daily Look: Hand-me-Down
Shirt: Ann Taylor Factory // Shorts: J. Crew // Shoes: Me Too via Marshall's // Bracelet: Gift // Ring: Madewell // Sunglasses: Ray-Ban // Lips: MAC Rebel // Nails: UO Basics Hot Tub // Toes: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pep-Plum
When I came out dressed in this outfit, my husband asked, "Is that shirt new?" I told him that it's new to me, but that it's actually many, many years old. Sam bought this shirt from the Ann Taylor outlet store while we were in college (I think), back before I even knew what a peplum was. She passed it along to me because she doesn't wear it any more, and I've always liked it. Yay for hand-me-downs! I tried to wear it earlier this year to work, but I actually got completely stuck in it when the side zipper caught on a loop of thread meant to hold a belt that this top originally came with. I had to literally cut myself out of the shirt and find something else to wear, and ended up being a leeetle bit late to work. I finally got the courage to try it out again, this time making sure there were no threads to turn it into a straitjacket, and now I'm excited to try it again for work.
Do you get hand-me-downs from any of your friends or family members?
