After putting on today's ensemble I realized that almost everything I'm wearing (including the necklace) came from one of Ann Taylor's stores. I'm quite pleased considering they no longer tend to stock my size in store (so much of my buying is buying online and hoping things will work out). I did throw on a red scarf and a dark brown coat, but I was too cold rushed to snap another picture.
Do you all avoid garments that require dry-cleaning? I don't usually mind because I've become such good friends with my Dryel, and during the winter I always have a coat or two to clean. So I bought these dry-clean only pants without a second thought (the clearance price definitely helped my decision). When I pulled them out of the closet I noticed that they were rather wrinkled, so I pulled out my handy Downy wrinkle releaser (I swear I'm not getting paid by any of these brands). Well, I'm a dumbass, because the wrinkles just ended up with wet spots that didn't seem to want to dry. So then I busted out my hair dryer and tried to blowdry the water spots out (it mostly worked). But I was still left with wrinkles. So in a moment of what I thought of as genius, I heated up my straightening iron and ironed out the pants. Well, apparently if you iron a small wrinkle it creates a weird white shiny residue on the pants. Or maybe it's because I was using something originally meant for hair. But anyway, I was wearing these pants today regardless of water spots and shiny white wrinkles, and I have realized that learning how to use a regular iron might be in my best interest.
