I have a silk blouse that is lavender, perhaps a shade lighter than this background, which I've probably worn twice before. Why? Because it's always a bit too snug to wear! So because I can never wear it, it's sitting in the closet, freshly cleaned and ready to go.
This morning I tried it on and it was positively loose! (that's GOOD) So I wore it to work, obv, and a few people complimented me on my "new" blouse. Yay! Plus the silk feels kinda silky and nice, which is a bonus.
Cut to lunch time..............
There's a lunch presentation going on, complete with free lunches that include mammoth sized sandwiches and mammoth sized desserts. I opt to skip fattening lunch and instead have my Weight Watchers frozen meal. I should lose like 10 lbs for that reason alone! For some reason "free" is far too tempting for me yet I resisted.
As I'm eating my frozen meal, a huge gob of sauce falls from my fork and lands both on my blouse and IN my blouse. I could feel the slime sliding right down. (That's BAD)
I finally cleaned it all up but there is a huge stain running smack down the middle of my top and I am quite sure the blouse is ruined. (That's UGLY)
And I only wore it once! This morning I was thrilled that the pretty top was now in the rotation, but thought it's so loose it may only be useful for a couple more weeks.
As I'm think about all this, I decide that I will post about my misery and since words don't do justice to the pretty silk blouse or the nasty stain I rummage for my camera. Yep, my plan was to take a quick photo of said stain, but guess what? I left my frigging phone home. Grrrrrr
