Orange You Glad?

Spring 30 for 30 - Outfit 10
Banana Republic Blouse (similar)/ Thrifted Pencil Skirt (similar)/ Nine West Shoes from DSW (similar)/ Forever XXI Flower/ J.Crew Necklace (similar)
Well, ladies and gents, we are 1/3 of the way through this 30 for 30 and I am excited to introduce you to my orange banana republic top - a purchase that almost didn't happen.

You see, it was the last top of its kind in my size and the seams had come apart, creating small holes along the seams. Still, I loved the color and the style of the top, so witty me (or at the suggestion of my mom and sister) asked the sales person if they could sell me the top at a reduced price since it was "damaged." She said yes and 20% off an already on sale item later the top was mine. I had the shirt fixed in no time and 2 years later this top, its seams, and I are still going strong. Moral of the story - if there's a will, there's a way.
