I bought this longish plain white sleeveless shirt from Forever 21 about a year ago. I had ideas of throwing it on over a tank top, or knotting it at the waist, or belting it... it didn't cost very much, so I just threw it over my arm with the other stuff I chose that day.
White shirts of this kind are not always made equally. The problems with this one? It's just too long. I never do wear anything over a tank top in the summer 'coz it's just too damned hot. I tried knotting it, but the extra length just made the knot impossible to make lie correctly - too bulky. And that belted idea? As it turns out, I don't love that look on myself very much.
To add to the list of wrongs, when I button it to a
sensible certain height, it gapes between the boobs. That's bad. If I open it to the next button, it's just unseemly. (Sidenote: if you have shirts that do that, either have an snap sewn in between the buttons to keep it closed so it lies flat, or let the garment go - the gaping hole between your boobs it the first thing anyone sees, and it's not flattering at all. It's actually kinda terrible.)
Left untucked, it's very straight and very meh. I don't love the collar on it enough to save for wearing under crew neck sweaters or other preppy sorts of looks, and I have other things to toss over a bathing suit if need be. I wouldn't even wear this item for sleeping... so out it goes. No harm - no foul.
Also on the pile is this top from Urban Behaviour, which was great while it lasted, and one of my favourites for a time, but it's colour has faded since I wore it to death, so I'm basically over it - I will not cry.
Have you been purging? You've got stuff like this too... faded, ill-fitting stuff. GET RID OF IT!!
