Anthropologie times two

I wrote a post recently for the Huffington Post about National Cleavage Day– and how I  lost my own cleavage (and both breasts) to breast cancer.  I’ve learned not only how to laugh about this situation—but how to dress for it.

I hit the jackpot when loose fitting baby doll tops became stylish.   I didn’t know how long they’d stay in fashion so I grabbed them whenever I could find them.  Like this brown top that I found at Anthropologie. 

When I went through my closet recently, I discovered that apparently I liked it so much I accidentally bought the same exact top TWICE.   This one still has the tags on it.

It’s chocolate brown, , much darker than it looks in this photo.   I like this top because it artfully camoflages my missing breasts—but it looks even better if you’ve still got yours.

    You are obviously a survivor. Yeah, congratulations! I am a 9 year survivor and have received positive reports about my cancer so far.
    I would love to have your Brown Baby Doll top. It’s just my size too. :)

    Hi, Darryle!

    This top is adorable. I have realized that brown looks much better on me than black does. I’m a mom of two who has had a rough year of moving, job-hunting and helping my family adjust to our downsized life. A cute new shirt would be a terrific pick-me-up. I also like to do nice things for others. Thank you and bless you!
