The Bad Buy Book: Tops

The Bad Buy Book is a series hosted by Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge and Nancy of Nancy’s Fashion Style. We wanted to establish together something fun and new. We both talked about our,,Sitting Shoes,, and so we came up with the idea for The Bad Buy Book!

We all do our best to look great in our outfits, choose the right accessories, the right makeup, the perfect shoes, and wait for the best light to shoot the most flattering outfit photos. And now we are asking you to show us the items you don’t feel your very best in. You know, those ,,Sitting Shoes,, that dress that is actually not quite your color, the skirt that is a size too small but the saleswoman said it looked amazing. We all own those items!  And while they may look fabulous, they don’t always feel fabulous! So we want you to show us your bad buys and tell us the story about them! What made you purchase the item?  And why do you dislike it now?  And why not share them with us?  We buy these things for a reason then hide them in the back of the closet.  Now it’s their turn to share the limelight.

July’s theme is:Tops!

Do you also have a blouse that completely brushes your breasts, a sweater that after one wash has a toddler’s size? Or a red shirt that is now pink( and your hubby’s socks too!)?

We want to see them! And we bet a hole lot of other women want to see it too!

So send us a photo before the 10th of July, of you and your blouse, sweater, cardigan or whatever kind of top is your Bad Buy, to be featured in July! Be sure to include a description of your top! or

    Yes, indeed, so many white knits that are now pink and blue! Off the shoulder becomes OFF THE BODY, when the elastic gets too relaxed in the dryer. Love this concept ! Hugs, Elle

      Haha, echt niet!!! Eigenlijk had ik gewoon meer tijd moeten nemen voor deze post.mik was van plan om alleen de mail te versturen maar toen dacht ik, ach ik schrijf ook even snel een post over t! Snel!! Ken je dat! Ik had nog nooit een collage gemaakt met foto’s en ik had maar heel even de tijd en t lukte natuurlijk niet in 1 x. Dus de volgende reminder voor augustus zal er beter uitzien! Ik beloof t! Maar uuuh, ik verwacht wel een ,,Bad,, topje van je hoor!!!

    I wish I had pictures, but I don’t. When I was pregnant I bought a certain top thinking it was going to good on me, wow I was wrong. The neckline didn’t fit right it was too big at the chest and I ordered an xs, it was not flattering at all. Sad thing is I couldn’t return the purple monstrosity final sale. Ugh. I donated it in the end. It didn’t fit right either around the belly too tight. What pregnant lady wants to look like Barney the dinosaur?

      Ha ha ha, oh how I would have loved seeing that on you!
