thank you for being a friend

i'd rather be overdressed than underdressed. i went to one of my young women's school musical this weekend and i was pretty excited to bust out the sequins. sure, i was pretty much the only one who planned an outfit for the ocassion, but i felt great. i see too many sweatpants at special events and i'm taking a stand. sweatpants are for exercise, hanging around your house and robbing banks. and of course, post-thanksgiving dinner.  
jacket- kohl's
sequin tunic- thrifted
jeans- gap forever skinny
shoes- jessica simpson
i felt like a younger, shorter, less crabby version of bea arthur in this tunic. i could actually hear the golden girls theme song as i pulled this over my head. it was like putting my ear to a seashell and hearing the ocean. i just hoped the previous owner hadn't died in it. you just can't wash that sort of thing off.
and the chevron detail is pretty fun too.

Well, thank *you* for putting the song in my head! LOL! I've been hearing it nonstop since I went to bed last night... This includes getting ready for bed, trying to sleep, waking up, going to the dentist, driving to work, having a meeting, sitting in the office. "...and if I threw a party, and invited everyone I knew... you would see, the greatest gift would be for me, that the card attached would say thank you for being a friend..." Imagine that on replay :-D

Oh by the way, apart from your great taste in TV programs, I also absolutely agree on overdressing. I always say it's ok to be overdressed, as long as you look good. Fortunately, sweatpants on special occasions are not as commonplace here. But I don't like jeans in the casino either, as an extreme example. It's a freaking casino night! Dress up for god's sake, people :-)
