Bad Joan goes to the Post Office

We all have a to-do list; grocery shopping, dry cleaning, post office, etc.  But even the most basic errand can be made fun if you've got the right outfit!  Check out Bad Joan's recent trip to the post office in her high-waisted denim and burnout tee...


When she arrived, Bad Joan perused the list of prices and services available ...

Bad Joan decided to use the automated machine where she received help from Vicky.  They chatted for a bit and Bad Joan found out that Vicky has worked for the post office for 23 years and that she has 10 grandchildren!

Bad Joan also discovered that there is bill that could close down many local post offices.  Since Vicky was so awesome and helpful Bad Joan promised to share this info with her lovely readers.  For more info on the current situation click HERE  ...  


... After thanking Vicky for her time and information Bad Joan paid for postage ...

... mailed her letters ...

... and went on her way ...

No matter what you are doing, a cute outfit can put a smile on your face!  Have a great weekend!

What Bad Joan is wearing:
- Cloud V-Neck T-Shirt by Jenny B - Retail $45 / Sale $19
- Tiered Fringe Bag by Carla Mancini - Retail $620 / Sale $198
- Earrings and Bracelet by Bilitis - VINTAGE DEAD STOCK COMING EXCLUSIVELY TO BADJOAN.COM IN 1 WEEK
- Pants - Grey Ant

GTBB,
Bad Joan

Super funny post!! Loved it!
And yes, we always have to look fab, no matter the situation!
For example, WHY so many people decide to disguise while doing tourism or taking flights??
I just can´t understand why you can´t choose a comfy BUT COOL outfit!!

XOXO

You look marvelous and documented your visit perfectly !
I have heard about the postal system being in trouble and its a shame- because it is so efficient !
Where I live IT SUCKS. They steal everything.
