Should it Stay Monday: Is this detailing lame? Or OK?

I’ve had this shirt for several years. This isn’t one of those “I’ve always had the sneaking suspicion this wasn’t a good choice” dresses/sweaters/etc. I think it looks fairly good on me, I just am not sure if it sends the right message. Does it look a little like “hey! I’m a plus-size shirt!” or maybe “I shop in the old-lady department store”? I don’t think so, but it often looks that way on the hanger. I pass it over in my closet often, but when I do put it on I usually think I look fine.

camera had the nerve to have a dead battery
It’s tagless and has been washed so many times I can’t read the printed-directly-on-the-fabric label, so I’m not sure what the brand is or where I bought it (I’m guessing Younkers.)

Updated: Poll results

Up next week: No hints! I’m going to take pictures of several things, some of which I want to keep and some of which I think should probably go. I won’t tell you what’s what and am interested to see if you agree with me when you don’t already know what I think.


  1. Ok, so I need another choice in the poll, which is that I like that shirt A LOT, but not with those pants. With the right black skirt I think it would be FABULOUS and you could even wear it to a dressy event.

  2. I agree with Elizabeth. Those pants are not right for the shirt.

  3. Love the shirt, it's not at all unflattering or plus size ish. And I'm fine with those pants or jeans, but I'm thinking I'd go with tan khakis before I'd do a black skirt. I own so little brown that I never really know what to pair it with though, other than, like, more brown. This is why my entire wardrobe is black and white and gray. OTHER COLORS CONFUSE ME.

  4. I like this, but not with those pants, as stated. Dark jeans? YES.

  5. Agree with all. I don't think it's an old lady shirt, but not with lighter colored pants. Maybe a skirt? (I am a skirt person.)
