I have been on a mission to cleanse my closet of clothes that no longer suit me by sorting through every article of clothing and deciding whether to keep, donate, sell, or alter. In this process, I found so many shirts that I LOVED but the silhouette was too long (because I used to wear a lot of long shirts with skinny jeans). So I took a handful of shirts to the tailor (if in NYC, I love Alteration Specialists — across the street from our apartment!) with high waisted pants and asked them to crop them. Yep, a 40 something year old wearing cropped shirts. I am so happy to recycle (upcycle!) clothes and I feel like I have a whole new wardrobe. Take a look at my awkward selfies in cropped shirts — and I highly recommend the process of making new from something old! Here they are!
I love this shirt and finally have so many different pants that it will work with.
Men’s fashion alert! As many of you know, I grew up in Eugene, Oregon, where there are as many men’s dress shirts as there are Republicans…(I only knew one or two families that were Republicans….call me a hippy liberal). That’s not to say I don’t have a view on men’s shirts, because I am EXTREMELY OPINIONATED. I can’t stand (bold underline italic) men’s dress shirts that are too big (or men’s clothes in general). Why is it hard for so many men to find clothes that fit well? Fortunately, Ken has found a new custom-fit shirt service that is user-friendly, reasonably priced, and makes great looking shirts.
OK OK OK, totally hippy, totally Eugene….and yet, totally awesome *and* totally on trend. BIRD SHIRTS! How can you NOT fall in love with them?
3 amigos all in bird shirts! (Me and one of my besties Bridget and her husband Joe)
