Today I was feeling a little frumpy so I decided that I'd wear a cute skirt, shirt, and my Mary Janes. Typically wearing a skirt is a no-no at work because of the amount of time that we have to spend in the shop each day. But today, I'm a rebel. Some days I'm like that. :)

The good news is my skirt is a size or two too big.

Call me McGyver...I secured the excess fabric via a safety pin so I don't moon people at work with my skirt slowly working it's way down. Plus, since I'm wearing a longer shirt so it covers up the bunching that happened. No one can know. :) I'm McGyver AND Columbo.

At any rate, one of our receptionists commented on my cute skirt and my ever so SLOWLY shrinking body. I, for reasons I'm not even sure of, showed her my waist where the extra material is gathered on the side.

Our other receptionist was SHOCKED that I would secure my wardrobe with a safety pin. She told me it would so much simpler to just put darts in my clothing.

I was all, Who do you think I am? I don't sew things. She asked if I had a sewing machine. WHAT? No. I'm not that person. I aspire to be that person - the one that makes my kids clothes or Halloween costumes...but really? Not so much now.

Apparently for me, safety pins work JUST fine.

I've totally done that!! If no one can see the safety pin, I don't see the harm!!
