An Ode to Polyester


I purchased this shirt for $1 this weekend and I love it. I expect the reason that it was sitting unwanted and rejected at the thrift store is because it is 100% polyester. But for me, therein lies the charm. Although I have not worn a lot of polyester since the 1970's, the fabric holds many charms. It is machine washable, has a flattering drape, and does not wrinkle. While everyone else is snapping up silk shirts at the thrift stores, I'll be in the polyester aisle.

This photo does not do the shirt justice but after having slept a total of three hours last night, it was the best I could do.

Sometimes polyester is just so right. It's so easy to wear!

you're right about Polyester, you can sleep all night in it and it's still straight. And it dries in a minute.
