I love my friends.
This blog post by my friend Courtney CRACKS me up. And it also made me wonder why I haven’t worn a dress with jeans lately. It’s a very comfortable, yet cute, way to hide a muffintop. As she pointed out, wearing a dress with jeans is definitely a “get-up.”
I work in a very conservative corporate environment and we (my friends and I) get regular comments on our attire. My friend Anna wore yellow tights last Winter that earned her plenty o’ unsolicited comments and stares.
Verdict: Many people in an office setting do not handle “get-ups” very well. This is something I find endlessly entertaining because usually the person who offers the unsolicited comment is, in fact, wearing some misguided form of a get-up as well.
Also … I just feel the need to say this somewhere … teased blonde bangs are no longer okay. There. I said it.
