honesty is the best policy

So I am not actually wearing this right now. or today. 
In reality I am wearing a very stylish life guard shirt & shorts. 
I know everyone should have a set in their closet.
thrilling. I know, please try to contain your excitement.
But lets play pretend that I am wearing this today

My description for this entry:
"I would like to enter this outfit for the Chictopia Week of Giving because I can not stress enough the importance giving back to the community.
I am submitting this outfit for my favorite Thrift Store the Rescue Mission of Trenton because they have an AMAZING amount of programs that they run (english lessons, long term and short term shelters, rehab, and other community programs) that are funded from the profits made in their thrift store.
All of the clothing for sale is donated & I make sure to give back by volunteering and donating my clothing.
It is important to feel good about what you are wearing and not in the sort of “Where did you get that, I love it” receiving compliments sort-of-way but deep down when you know that your money spent and the clothing you donate and wear goes to actually helping people in need in your community.
It is like karma and recycling with the added bonus of seeing the programs succeed to help others in need."
