Pepto Bismol, Eat Your Heart (burn) Out


Sweater: $4, Jeans: $4, Trench: $3, Shoes: $3

TOTAL: $14

I got this whole outfit—including that epically pink trench—as part of Round 2 of The 30 Minute Goodwill Challenge (click on over to read how I fared my second time around).

And while I usually prefer that my clothes not remind of heartburn and indigestion, that new-with-tags trench from Old Navy was just too perfectly Pepto to pass up.

And the rest of it?

Well, I don’t own a single other item that could be described with the word “argyle.”

And it’s only so often you can feel like a pirate and a Scotsman at the very same time while describing your (itchy, wool) sweater.

And comfy orange wedges to wear in February? That’s just too obvious for words, right?

By the way, if you’re ever wondering how to pull yourself out of a fashion rut, I strongly recommend heading to Goodwill and giving yourself a time limit.

You might end up wearing hammer-pants and a bow-tie silk blouse, but I guarantee that you will leave with something you wouldn’t normally wear.

And with that little gem, I’m all fashion-adviced out.

(Send me pics of the hammer pants, please).
