LOVE the collar. I’m thinking the sleeves are too short for me because they always are. I have long monkey arms. This mauve color has been a favorite of mine for quite a long time. When I was a freshman in high school I wore pink almost every day. So girly. It was like…my thing. I even dyed the tips of my hair pink. A year later I started listening to Sleater-Kinney, Yeah Yeah Yeah’s, other awesome and sad emo stuff and I swore off of pink. Black black black! Jean jacket every day and converse.Then the jacket mysteriously disappeared. I still wonder about that thing. I bet someone was just doing me a favor.
It has been 10 years (wow…) since my pinkaholicness was put to a halt and I still don’t have anything pink…whoa, aside from this huge pink fuzzy robe I’m wearing – thank you Mother-in-law. She recognizes this lack of color in my wardrobe. I do have a pink cell phone that I never ever ever use. That information might be shocking to some.
My Mom (both Mom’s are coming to the fashion rescue here) did buy me the ca-utest black jacket with too short sleeves *tear* that I’m going to try to pretend is supposed to have shortish sleeves. I haven’t worn it yet but I will be in London for the weekend and will try it out there.
