My Future on Reality Television

hoarders

hoarders
works cited: j. crew striped shirt; bow skirt c/o spotted moth; steve madden flats; necklace c/o le mode accessories

I definitely do not need any more striped shirts, but the flawed logic of the collector poured poison into my ears and convinced me to buy yet another one one a few weekends ago--it's 75% off, and it's partly linen--so cool for the summer, and you don't have a navy and white one, and it has three-quarter sleeves that are a little different from your other 75 striped shirts and just look at that flattering scoopneck. Nevertheless, I think I will get a lot of wear out of it, even if I am fated to be on an episode of Hoarders because I can't get out of my own bedroom thanks to the overflowing pile of striped shirts blocking the exits, about which I'm shrieking "But they have sentimental value! And they're each so different!"
P.S. Update: Blogger ate this post when it had a conniption fit last week...and sadly it ate all of your very funny comments so the best part of the post is gone :(

I LOVE this skirt!!

If you make it onto Hoarders because of all your striped shirts, can you please let me know so I can be sure to watch the episode? I love Hoarders... it's so scary/crazy/gross/sad/funny.

This sounds familiar lol I share your striped top fetish :)

ha i'm the exact same way with ribbed tank tops. "oh, i can wear them during the summer with plain soffe shorts on bum days, or with a cute skirt, or under a cardigan in the winter! and this shade of pink is a little more honeysuckle, a little less blush than my other 7 pink ones!". i understand you. ha. but in other news, i also love your skirt.

Striped shirts are easy to hoard because they never go out of style. I have a cute ralph lauren yellow/light blue striped number from about 8 years back that has since shrunk in the wash, but I cannot bring myself to get rid of it.

I have the same problem when it comes to striped shirts! I just can't refrain!

Bettina said...

Christine said...

heh heh, sentimental value. (also love the skirt.) (and the SUN, oh God we'll never get the sun in the pac nw agaaaaain.) I may be overexaggerating, but not about the skirt.

i love the gold accessories with the denim skirt. one of my favorite combinations!

and at least you aren't an "extreme coupon-er" or an "animal hoarder." things you collect could be worse than striped shirts :)

I love this outfit! AS a fellow striped shirt hoarder I totally understand what your saying...each one is very different from the next isn't it :)

Sal said...

Not a bad thing to hoard. ;)

Ariana said...

I loved striped shirts! Some idiot told me that because Im a little chubby they werent flattering on me. So I stopped wearing them for awhile. But I just couldnt resist...and dove back into my obsession a few years ago. There is nothing wrong with striped shirts...now if I could only find a skirt like that...Id be set.

Nav said...

It is a very flattering shirt and for 75% off, who can argue with your logic? I love the skirt too!

Salazar said...

That skirt is super cute!

Reading this kinda makes me want to break my shopping ban and go buy another striped shirts in a different color. I don't have any in a warm color yet :D

This is reeeeeal cute! I'm glad you got another striped top, especially if it was 75 percent off! I'm really loving how you styled this whole look.

Sarah said...

I love the skirt! And denim with stripes has always been a favorite combo of mine. Love it with the statement necklace and matching shoes!!

I am so thankful that you're also a striped top hoarder. I was getting worried that it was only me.
