I've been just dying to get out of my boring work uniform and into an utterly sickeningly girly outfit. Sigh, just my favorite!What's more girly than socks, light nudes, and a hair bow...Nothing ♥
Speaking of work though, I completely forgot to mention in my last post the most horrifying experience I had at work the other day. Long time followers of my blog know my struggle with OCD and my extreme fear of throwing up. I am on medication to handle my anxiety for it, but occasionally I'm faced with a situation I simply can't avoid. On Thursday four different customers threw up at work. I was so incredibly upset. I could have just handled it happening once, able to calm myself down, but it just kept happening again and again, re-triggering my fears. It wasn't from the food, but because it was dreadfully hot that day for Ohio and making people sick. I went to the storage room, crying my eyes out because I couldn't control how upset I was. I know being scared of someone throwing up is one of the silliest things in the world, but I just can't help myself... It was embarrassing enough to cry in front of the managers and not be able to do my job to the best of my ability, but it was definitely a strengthening experience for me. I handled it a lot better than I would have a few years ago.
Anywho, I got this skirt from OASAP a few days ago in the mail and was really excited to have a neutral skirt. As you all know, I've received two things from them previously with mixed reviews. The bow belt I got was superb, and the red suede heels I got a disaster. And what do I think of this skirt...? Hmm...definitely not as good of quality as I would have liked. It's super wrinkled and when I got it caught on my camera case velcro it snagged. Not to mention the fabric was so see through even when I wore nude underwear. Another thing I found odd is that when ordering it, the garment was one size fits all. I received it and was shocked at how short it was and I have no idea how a tall person would wear this. I'm 5'3 and it was the shortest thing I've ever worn!
Anywho, I hope to see you all tomorrow and be back with another outfit post before I have to work five more days in a row! x
With much love, Lauren.
