There’s this amazing Portlandia episode where the laugh line is “Put a bird on it.” This references, no doubt, the overabundance of twee paraphernalia featuring the outline of birds and sold to the twee populace. I’d love to make fun of this constantly, and I would, if only I wasn’t such a sucker for anything that has a bird on it.
This sweet tunic was pulled from a pile at an awesome clothes swap that I recently went to. As adorable and comfortable as this tunic is it was also just that much too short for work. To the rescue swoops a simple little black jersey skirt, which adds the two crucial inches to make it work-safe.
