simple pleasures

How is it that high-waisted pants are an across-the-board atrocity, but high-waisted skirts are the best style of clothing ever invented? Hoping to do double duty in Manhattan after a life-altering appointment with a counselor (more on that later), I stopped in an H&M to find a new white tank top and walked out with three of the latter, never having tried one on before.


I just played dress up for an hour and discovered a whole new wardrobe. All my t-shirts, wife beaters, and what I thought were now-too-juvenile college-era tank tops suddenly look actually kind of stylish. For someone as lazy as I am when it comes to dressing myself (and, ok, pretty much everything else), this is nothing short of revolutionary.
