A: I am so full of excitement. Truly.
M: Okay the first is also kind of cheating, but whatever. I have on my list: Mid-Length Denim Button Front Skirt. Now, I hate skirts, as you know. But this won't get out of my head so let's do this. Anyway I was ready to start my search, then found this skirt and bought it sooooo:
M: It could be a disaster and it's final sale because I like to live dangerously.
A: I totally dig that skirt. I wanted it!
M: I think it's so cute. Reviews said to size up, and a size (or two) up was all that was left, so fingers crossed.
A: You can always eBay it if it doesn't work.
M: My next item is a cream colored silk button down. Like Equipment but with a price tag I can stomach. I'm willing to pay a little money for quality though. And it just so happens that TJ Maxx has a million of awesome options and I need your helllllllllp. Ready Set Go.
M: This one is basically perfect, though I would possibly prefer an uncovered placket:
A: Is very good! I like that a lot.
M: Vince silk tops fit me SO well, but this is white and I feel like not as versatile for fall?
M: I also love it in black but that's neither here nor there.
M: I keep looking at this one. I'm part "ooh cute with that denim skirt and booties" and part "Pirates of The Caribbean, Revenge Of The Moms."
A: Hey, maybe you want to be a Mommy pirate, IDK.
M: Real quick, WTF is happening with these shirt tails?
M: I should probably go with the rag & bone Leroy, right?
A: The Leroy is perfect and doesn't have a super long tail which I do not understand.
M: It's insane, right?
A: I would step on it and fall backwards and sustain a nasty concussion.
M: I think the Leroy is it.
A: It's very classic. I also like the black Vince number.
M: I love it. I have the short sleeve version in navy and wear it to death.
M: Besides the fact that this is styled on a cadaver, this is giving me second thoughts:
A: Poor dead girl. She’s the same color as the shirt.
M: I can't tell if the one at TJ Maxx has the contrast cuffs and collar.
A: Oooh, duh. Yeah. Hmm.
M: LAST ITEM is a long line black vest. Which I recognize is kind of weird but look at this. Yes, right? I could probably cheap out on this one but I feel like it would show in the tailoring and fabric quality.
M: This one is basically perfect, DAMN YOU rag & bone. Probably a lil more than I want to spend:
M: This is cute, not as versatile, but super cheap:
M: This one is not bad, but I'm tall and I don't think it will be quite long enough on me to get that black column effect:
M: A less tailored contender, more causal:
M: UGH TELL ME WHAT TO DO. UGH.
A: I personally Do Not Vest but I see what you're going for and I think it's cute. I really love the last option a lot but I don't do a lot of tailored things so it appeals.
M: I worry the last one skews a little Eileen Fisher Chico's Kind of Day.
A: That's probably why I like it.
M: What the actual fuck:
A: It’s like an Escher drawing. Down is up! Lapel is down!
M: I know we say this a lot but it legit looks like a mistake.
A: *Pulls vest thing out of box* "Hey…um…do you think this is..."
M: "Send it to TJ Maxx, boys."
M: I stared at everything for too long and just closed the window. Good talk.
A: Would you like some gin? There's room next to me in this ditch.
M: Yes please.
