Favorite Black V-Neck.


This post is heartbreaking to write. This is my favorite t-shirt. We’ve been through so much together.

The last time I went to wear this shirt, I put it on and I noticed it was so thin it was see through, the elasticity of the shirt was really worn in the shoulders and the minor holes down the hem at the bottom of the shirt were noticeable. The shirt I always felt cute in was no longer cute. I took it off and found something else to wear.

I will be buying a replacement black v-neck ASAP. Here are some of my favorite memories and pictures of me in this black v-neck.

Many times I wore this t-shirt with my favorite scarf. (The one I bought with Item 17). This was taken sometime in Feb/March 2015.
On my 28th birthday. November 25, 2015.

R.I.P. Favorite Black V-Neck. You’ve lived a long, healthy life. A moment of silence, everyone.


Item 37

J. Crew Bridesmaid Dress.


Ugh. I wish with every fiber of my being that this dress still fit me. It’s really sad.

I wore this dress…in 2007. I was a bridesmaid in my sister’s wedding. It’s a classy, gorgeous J. Crew little black dress. But, I was a teenager when I last wore it. It’s a 2P. I was a tiny gal then. I’m still little, just a little bit more womanly. (haha).

This dress is beautiful. I wore it one time after to a cousin’s wedding, but by then it was beginning to be a little snug. There is no way it would fit me now. I’ve known for quite some time that this has been sitting in my closet, but I was like, “I’m going to sell it on eBay!” and haven’t gotten around to it. Well, I’m getting around to it now! It’s outta here!

Take care, J. Crew Bridesmaid Dress!

Item 36

The Poison Ivy Costume.


I LOVE Halloween. It is my favorite holiday and I often think about what/who I am going to be that year…all year long. I’ve already talked about some of my past costumes (Amy Winehouse Item 19 or Anna from “Frozen” Item 22), but this Poison Ivy Costume I made kind of has my heart.

I try my best to go as red headed characters for Halloween. There aren’t many of them, so I think it’s fun to represent them.

Growing up, my younger siblings and I were obsessed with Batman. So I thought it would be awesome to go as Poison Ivy for Halloween 2010. (I think I also wore this costume out in 2013 or 2014 too, but I wore a few different costumes and mixed it up for different parties.)

This was special because I bought the green spandex dance suit and then glued some artificial ivy leaves onto it my mom had stored in the basement. It turned out pretty well and I’ve kept it around since then.

It’s been a great costume and I hope someone else will like it just as much!

Blurry Halloween picture from 2010. I have snagged a friend’s staff and another friend’s Harry Potter glasses and am dancing around. It was clearly a good party.
