MULTI-PURPOSE

I mentioned a couple months ago that I walked into Gap and bought all of the poplin shirts so I wouldn’t have to think about what to wear daily. Well, I’ve done the same thing again except this time it’s Hanes ribbed tanks. I’ve sliced them down the sides, made them bodysuits, and worn them backwards- they’re pretty much the most versatile thing you can own.

Wearing a Hanes tank, pants from the Army Surplus store and Gianvito Rossi pumps. Also, I cut my hair again, sort of inspired by Winona Ryder and my hair circa 2012.

    You look amazing! Love your sense of style, and I have to know-what bra are you wearing? It’s magically invisible!!!

    • Guest

      It’s not “magically invisible” you can tell she’s wearing a strapless shirt bra (the first photo). But maybe she’s wearing one of those sticky silicone breast cutlets. I don’t know. Either one of those 2.

  • Rei Toei

    Love the hair, the tank, the pants… the bra – no so much.

    I’m guilty of being a Hanes ribbed tank “junkie”!!! Moving from Alaska to Alabama was such…..I can’t find an appropriate word to express the “adjustment”…. I’ve always had my go to hair and beauty products that work for me…and I take pride in my ability to shop successfully at thrift stores….Goodwill ….and being that I’ve been the same size forever I have a ridiculous amount of “closet crack”… I design high end doggie couture using only fabrics from Chanel inspired tweed jackets..blazers etc. so I travel to neighboring states etc. hitting all the Goodwill’s because honestly I find high end stuff in the “church or older ladies” section (according to my 13 year old)… and that’s my Niche of doggie couture.. LONG STORY SHORT and back to my “issue”… ALABAMA compared to Alaska… (not the obvious differences….) has been extremely challenging and for someone who is hardheaded and never had humidity issues ….the girl with good hair and great makeup…whether it was laid back on the weekend or work makeup (Auto Sales)… it JUST WASN’T AN ISSUE… and my wardrobe… sigh..I loved dressing up and dressing down…and I loved and enjoyed sharing tips and secrets…always helping coworkers or friends…strangers…then I move to Alabama and my makeup…it’d been my friend for so many years..dependable….it didn’t work….and I went to girls at the makeup counter….and I’m still struggling and I have tried many brands etc… and some are ok but its not the same and it..SUCKS…sorry…it’s a battle and I’m a lover not a fighter and so most of the time when I’m at home I do as little as possible because even if I do my face and it looks good….IT NEVER FEELS GOOD… not really…I DON’T AND WON’T HAVE AN OILY FACE…….so I stick to amazing mascara……use to be simple …but no..even mascara is a battle….and hair…can I tell you that I’m not lazy…but most of the time in Alaska i’d do the easy sleek pony tail and save the big hair etc. for the weekend…PONY TAIL..SLEEK..nope.. I LIVE IN A SIDE BUN BECAUSE MY NECK GETS HOT….THEN MY sleek pony tail turns…under..and curls on my neck…HOW .. I DON’T HAVE CURLY OR WAVY HAIR.. I HAVE STRAIGHT HAIR..I WAS A LICENSED HAIRDRESSER FOR YEARS….AND YET NOW I’M DOING THE SIDE BUN THING…..and if it weren’t for a bet and deal made with my 21 year old I’d be chopping my hair today…it’s February 3rd and tomorrow we are supposed to be up to 80 degrees…

    AND GUESS WHAT MY GO TO LOYAL NEVER FAIL OUTFIT IS….WHAT I BASICALLY LIVE IN…..

    HANES RIBBED TANKS…… I HAVE TONS OF TANKS and numerous summer tops…but I literally went to WALMART… (a store that I’d only shopped at a few times being Fairbanks Alaska didn’t have one until a few years prior to my moving here!. And yet now is a store I frequent being it’s the main store in this small town… ) and purchased about 6-8 bags of plain white ribbed Hanes.. purchasing the best deal for the dollar of course…and I flipping love them…they look good…feel good…they are sexy…sexy as you can get with the least bit of effort…and at home I sport them with man boxers or cut offs.. and I change about three times a day when I’m busy but it’s ok because I have soooo many and they are so easy to wash….and they keep their shape…I even purchased a pack of tall so that I could wear them with leggings or over my swimsuit …… they even look good with a pair of jeans and boots…. THEY ARE LIKE LIFESAVERS!! THE ONE GOOD GO TO THING THAT I CAN DEPEND ON…..even though it’s sad because I miss dressing up…and ya know what else……..being that my husband decided to retire here we purchased a second home with land so that he could have chickens and a goat lol…in exchange he promised a walk in closet…a huge one….and so now I have the most amazing dream closet being built …it’s ridiculous…..and I feel blessed please don’t get me wrong…..but I live in a “wife beater”!!! Don’t get me wrong though… I still shop and am always looking for quality pieces…. however…. I’m usually inside….where there’s an air conditioner…in my studio…sewing doggie couture…with waterproof mascara…a side bun…..in a white ribbed Hanes…cut offs…..Hanes ankle socks because my feet freeze…..
    It’s so nice to know that someone else shares such!!! Now if I could break the stupid “law” that I have that I have to have long blonde hair… and cut my hair!!!
