So I bought this adorably cheap shirt from Forever 21, and it’s becoming my Marge Simpson shirt.
Everyone has that “Marge Simpson” outfit - you remember, the episode when she joins the country club and buys that pink Chanel suit. She can’t afford another one so she just keep re-wearing it and altering it, until the other ladies catch on. My BFF and I call our standby, never fail, favorite clothes our “Marge” clothes.
ANYWAY. Back to the shirt - it fits fine, and is adorable, but there is a gap in the bust bewteen the buttons, and I cannot be bothered with it. So let’s fix it.
I can sew, but what good will that do when I have to take the thing off at the end of the day. I’m not an advocate of fabric tape…usually, but in this case, it does the trick.
A few weeks ago I signed up for (and later canceled) the biggest scam of my life, Birchbox. Yes, 10 dollars for a bunch of samples you can get for free. I’d heard good things, but unfortunately, it was a waste of money. “Dramatic eyeliner” that was worthless. A sample one-time use bronzer (hello, I am see through, PASS). A “could have gotten this for free just by walking through Macy’s” sample of Juicy’s latest perfume (yes, I liked it, but should I have paid for it? no.) And then these fabric strips. OH WAIT, I’m forgetting the *free* download from a band I have never heard of. WOW. THANKS A LOT. I want my money back!
Getting back to the fabric strips. I found a use for them with this shirt - and luckily, hadn’t thrown them out. They did the trick. Worth ten bucks? MEEEHHH. I only had to use one, and it lasted the entire day, but then again, so does duct tape. Here are some stupid photos of me putting it into action. Thanks to Scott for taking pictures (he’s the bomb <3)
EXTREME CLOSEUP. WOOAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Mission accomplished. WAHOO!!!
