Too much?

Top: GW ($5), Jeans: American Eagle/GW ($5), Wedges: GW ($3)

TOTAL: $13

Last week, I posted about how necessity is sometimes the mother of new clothes and how my go-to choice for “new” clothes is, of courese, Goodwill (plus a washing machine, duh!). Well, I bought this tunic/dress/top thingie on the same weekend when I bought my oh-so-stylin’ heart-sweatshirt, and if it hadn’t been the absolute best article of clothing I could find on that particular trip, I might have passed it up as being a little too much—too many colors, too many patterns, too many ruffles, too precious, too…you get the idea.

But, being “too” anything else is better than being too naked in public in my humble opinion, so buy it I did. And you know what? I’m glad I did.  I threw it on with those straight-legged jeans and some wedges and felt instantly accessorized, supremely comfy, and maybe even a bit stylish.

I’m wondering if maybe I shouldn’t go shopping when I literally *have* to have clothes more often. If you see me next week wearing purple, zebra print leather pants and a muumuu, you’ll know I took this theory a little too far.
