Take One

{ What I Wore: burgundy red Esprit fedora hat c/o Surfdome (similar here) // J.Crew blouse // DaisyGem necklace // Citizens of Humanity "Dylan" boyfriend jeans (similar 1 // 2 // 3) // "All in One" clutch c/o Gigi New York // BCBG Generation heels via TJ Maxx }

Well, I am on day 2 of the "Take One, Pass it On" challenge & already failing. But in my defense some pretty crazy things happened. For the challenge I am supposed to take one item from my previous outfit & transform it into a new look. But right after I took yesterday's pictures, I bent over to pick up Doug's poop, & the butt cheek of my pants ripped open. Not just a little bit, like a whole lotta bit. Nothing quite like running down your alley holding a bag of poop, tripod, pug & the butt of your pants closed. As if my neighbors already thought I was crazy... suspicions confirmed. 

So I took those pants & passed them onto the trash pile (let's be honest, my so called "mending pile" should just be the trash, because I haven't attempted to put a dent in it in months).

Never have I been so proud to own 2 pairs of near identical boyfriend jeans (yay for all the money I wasted saved while working for a boutique in college). So moving on, just imagine that these are the same jeans. To get over the other pair, I am personally pretending they are one in the same. We each mourn in our own ways really.
In happier news, my huge mug is currently gracing the home page of the fabulous jewelry shop DaisyGem & what that means for you is this:

Score $5 off my favorite necklace, featured in this outfit, with code "JESS5" or get 15% off your entire order using code "HERE15"
Have you mourned the loss of a favorite article of clothing recently?

P.S. Please take just a second to vote for me in the OnlineShoes competition {here}
It is oh so close & I am OH SO competitive ;) I just dare you to play me in Apples to Apples!

  9. WTF, boyfriend jeans?! If tight skinny jeans can manage to keep it together, then boyfriend jeans should definitely be able to. But as the official president of Take One Pass it On, I say this totally counts. These are the same pants as far as I'm concerned! Love the whole look, BTW.

  10. I LOVE the hat Jessica! Such a terrible (but secretly hilarious) story. I'll take a moment of silence for your boyfriend jeans, they were too young to die...

  11. Ha, I agree. I must say, I loved those jeans literally to death. The jean material was so worn they were buttery soft, but oh so fragile. I have intentions to fix them... or maybe I will just take them home to mom over T-giving ;)

    Thanks for giving me a pass Madam President!!

  16. Haha oh no that is so sad to lose a beloved piece of clothing! I honestly can't think of anything I've recently lost... because I basically replaced my entire wardrobe post-college because it was awful.


    I voted for you in the contest- good luck!
