I'm As Big As A Small Man!

I don't have enough summer shirts (read: t-shirts) to last an entire week.

Before, I would cheat by (gasp!) wearing a shirt more than once w/o washing.

Turns out DC weather makes that impossible, if not unfeasible. Even walking to put a thank-you note in a mailbox causes my clothes to stick to my skin.

So what's a frugal recent graduate to do?

Buy a five-pack of men's undershirts, of course. Size small. 5 shirts for $6.95 is the best deal going.

(And white goes with everything.)

It does make me sad, a little bit, to be going around in a white undershirt during the Year of the Summer Dress, but I console myself with the idea that, by the end of the summer, I might be earning enough money to buy a dress or two of my own.

Until then, I'll girl up my manly shirt with strings of junk jewelry and toenail polish.

Ross is your friend. Ross Dress For Less. I bought a few summer dresses there four years ago for maybe $20 and I still wear them often every summer.

Nothing wrong with the white tee!

It was once my ambition to be so quirky and rich that I could wear white tshirts and jeans everywhere (albeit with fabulous accessories) and everyone would call it a fashion choice. Now... well, you've seen my closet.
