The Twitter Blouse

Magenta Blouse with Glasses

Sometimes the powers of the internet amaze me in new and exciting ways. A few weeks ago I idly tweeted that I really wanted a magenta blouse. The sweet and stylish Kara from Unusual Form tweeted me back and said she’d be happy to mail this once worn thrifted blouse to me! It’s exactly the mood-enhancing bright color I’ve been craving. I didn’t even feel the need to add many bells and whistles to the outfit since the color had so much pizazz. That’s the wonderful thing about brights: they can turn a basic jeans-and-flats kind of a day into a HOT PINK kind of day. Rachel Zoe might call this my “pink moment” if she ever deigned to talk about my moments…

Another wonderful twitter-related surprise was going to the Essie-hosted party at Milk and Honey Salon this week. We got to try out the new holiday collection, and I selected this pretty greypurplesilver color called Cocktail Bling. I thought it looked nice with magenta.

The moral to this story, aside from the powers of wearing bright colors, is to join twitter (and follow me!). You never know what wonderful fate (shirts? manicures?) might befall you.
