I had about 10,000x more fun sorting out my wardrobe when I blogged about it (approaching a year ago, I believe?!?).
I’m taking a page from Hollywood and creating a sequel long after anyone needed or expected one. That’s right—the Fashion Blog You Never Knew You Needed returns for part 2, in which I expand my wardrobe and buy clothing of a business casual nature.
My obsession is ModCloth, but I also managed to get a bit of thrifting done at my local Goodwill and put together some pretty nice outfits if I do say so myself. Allow me to introduce you to my recent-ish fashion acquisitions.
The Spring Weekend:
2. The Librarian with Too Many Sweaters (Or Not Enough???):
3. The Vintage ‘80s Chic Colorblocking Throwback
4. The Weekend at Woodstock
What about you? Any fashion finds you are particularly proud of lately or on the prowl for? What I would really like is a pair of sweat pants that look like dress pants, honestly.

I can’t pretend I’m even a little bit interested in the prompt for today (and by today I mean Wednesday). One of the suggestions: a series of vignettes connected by drinking your signature drink. This would be easier if my signature drink wasn’t tea and sadness. And by that, of course, I mean tea brewed with my tears and sweat. (Ugh, I’ll stop, I promise. I don’t want to be responsible for you being unable to drink another cup of tea again.)
So let’s talk about what I’ve been doing with my thrilling weekend. Today’s task (besides getting caught up with blogging, cooking, and watching Filth): sorting out my closet/making room for my nice new professional wardrobe (ha).
Honestly, I really, really like throwing things away. I have too much stuff, largely comprised of books, kitchen gadgets (you will pry my brûlée torch from my cold, dead fingers), and clothing. I also have a large collection of Beanie Babies in the basement that I was completely ready to donate, but my mom didn’t want to get rid of them (you’re part of the problem, Mom).
Since I know this sounds like the most fun ever, let’s play a game where you guess if I kept that piece of clothing, threw it away, or denied all knowledge of its existence (as in went back into old photos and edited it out, Stalin-style). Except not really a game because I’ll tell you immediately what decision I made. It’ll be more like I invited you over and told you we’d have a fun afternoon, but instead you got stuck with me interrogating you about my wardrobe decisions (and then completely disregarding everything you suggest).
We’ll start with an easy one:
How did you do? And, more importantly, how did I do? In 10 years am I going to look back and think my life could’ve been completely different if only I’d kept that dress with the giant ass bow?
