Because this got posted on a quiet day (Memorial Day) I am reposting it for Fight the Frump. Feel free to add your link to your post of the frumpy outfit you purged, to Mr. Linky below.
So finally — I am able to post my outfit in all of its glory. I would have had it posted earlier, but I got side-tracked by these:
Have mercy, are they good! I don’t think they fall under the umbrella of marathon-training food. But there are bound to be some vitamins, or minerals, or sumpin’ in there that is good.
This outfit is old. If nothing else, it will sell you on the fact that J.Crew makes some quality stuff.
Background of shirt:
Purchased in 1993 when I worked at J.Crew during college.
Worn through all four pregnancies. Surprised none of the buttons ever popped off.
Just this past summer, finally began to show signs of wear. And it went downhill quickly.
Background of pants:
Purchased in 2000 after Abigael was born
Worn through the subsequent pregnancies.
Even worn to church at one point, with nice flats. There must be a special prayer of repentance that I must say for that mistake.
Now have no shape – saggy knees, wide at hips. At one point, they had a cute little flare at the bottom. Now they just fizzle. (you can’t tell from the photo, but they are a sort-of cropped length – stop an inch or two above the ankle)
It is time for me to fare thee well, my frumpy outfit. You’ve served me well, though lately, you’ve just served me. I know, without a doubt, fo shizzle, that I got my moneys worth from both items.
So tell me about yours. Link to it here, and invite others to join in the frump purge.
