It’s been ages since I last wore this Hello Kitty tie neck blouse. When I bought this blouse, I thought it would receive a lot of wear simply because it combined two of my favorite things: tie neck blouses and Hello Kitty.

Unfortunately, these two opposing forces worked against the shirt in practice. I didn’t want to wear it to work because I felt too juvenile and inappropriate wearing Hello Kitty to the office. Yet the style and color of the blouse was hard to integrate into weekend wear.

Have you ever bought something that sounds amazing in theory that didn’t end up being a closet darling?
