Ever have an article of clothing that looks great, but limits your range of motion in some way? You are either forced to stand because something is too short or the girls pop out even after you duck tape the hell out of your own boobs. Well, maybe not to that extreme, but you get the idea.
Today I decided to wear this blazer that I bought while living abroad in London. It’s very polished and modern with 3/4 lengths sleeves that show off my tattoos. I put it on this morning and felt great.
Got to the office and realized that my arms cannot exceed 90 degrees. As I’m typing this, I’m sitting up as high as I can to reach the keyboard. I feel like the Hulk, if the Hulk was a small Asian woman willing to sacrifice movement for fashion. Janelle sad.
I’d take the blazer off, but I forgot to shave. I thought it was a good idea to wear a flowy tank, and figured the blazer kept things covered. It’s also freezing. I basically prevented myself from being able to move around today. Not that I’m constantly raising my arms around the office but I liked having the option.
Did I learn my lesson? Will I think twice before wearing?
I’ll most likely forget, wear it again, and then write another post about how everything in the universe is against me.
On the bright side, I’m going to North Carolina next Saturday AND it’s almost Labor Day weekend!
I’m going to bombard everyone with an incredible amount of mundane beach pictures and food. So much food.
I may also include inappropriate sand drawings. My gift to you.
