I've never known why, I just hate wearing a white blouse. I'm okay with other color blouses, or even a white blouse with something else on it, but plain white is no good.
Polos too. I have never liked a polo and I always thought it was because it was a bit yuppie-esque.
Today, I had what Oprah would call an "aha" moment.
I was getting ready for an interview. I was putting on a light gray suit and a white blouse. I know, I just said I don't like them, but they say it's good for an interview.
As I'm putting on the shirt, I had a flashback to my 12 years of Catholic school and it hit me!
I hate white blouses and polos because I wore them every day for 12 years! It's the damn uniform quality to a white shirt that I hate! It's nothing personal against the color or the style, just more than a decade of trauma wearing these shirts!
