works cited: shirt borrowed from friend in college and never returned (thanks, Syd!); skirt c/o threadcase; fitzwell wedges bought for mere pocket change on 6pm; j. crew belt; breda watch
One of the best things about being in college was having access to all your friends' clothes and I was lucky to have several friends who were my size and had enviable closets. In particular, my friend Sydney always had fun tops, cool earrings, and the best jeans so I was always borrowing things and later begging her to let me keep them. This shirt was one of the pieces I usurped during college; I love the scooped back and the soft color. Sydney has always been ridiculously generous and permissive of my greedy fingers; over the years, her castoffs have become some of my favorite pieces and when I stayed with her this last Christmas, I walked away with a sweater I've coveted for years and a plaid button-up. Now if only I could get her to move a little bit closer, I might never need to shop again.
