Ok, I caved. I walked by The Gap factory store today and picked up the same long-sleeved tee in a different color: blue and green!
Sadly it’s $9.99 today, not $7.99. Ah well!
(That’s a mirror, I didn’t buy 2 sets!)

I just went to Anthropologie’s website today and saw this page of stripes & polka dots, which is very much what The Closettes have been wearing of late.
I guess we’re not only très chic, we’re au courant.
It’s officially summer here in the Northern Hemisphere, and it’s also peak wedding season for us. I’m on the lookout for new work dresses, but today’s trip didn’t yield any finds.
Here are a couple of mediocre options from the clearance rack that I tried on:
I ended up buying this Ralph Lauren dress – $49, but not for work though. I was actually searching for it last year when planning a photoshoot for ourselves but it was sold out at the Macy’s stores I went to. Glad to find it at half the price this time. Thank you, TJ Maxx!
Here’s a clearer picture of what the dress looks like:
Then I headed over to Target, the always-reliable stand-by for cheap & chic. I actually scored a work dress for $7 last year in Washington DC after I flew all the way there to shoot a wedding and realized my dress was still hanging behind the door at home in Los Angeles.
I bought one in dark blue stripes: $17.99 for the top, $14 for the bikini bottom. Really flattering and adorable, and it would be so cute with an imaginary giant floppy hat that I have no intention to acquire.
No picture because yours truly needs to lose a bunch of weight before being seen in this…
I also picked up this light summer scarf ($12.99) in a myriad of warm tones. I’ll need to cover my hair while photographing an upcoming Sikh wedding, so this was bought with that purpose in mind. My only existing light scarf is white, which apparently isn’t appropriate to wear to such a wedding.
And so it is, a new record for me: 3 patterned items in one shopping trip. Stripes, dots, and a colorful design!
