What I Wore (to get acupuncture)

There's a first time for everything.

Such as getting acupuncture.  (In hopes that my migraines will disappear.)

But what in the world do you wear to an acupuncture appointment???

Would they make you change into a robe?

I had no clue.


I'd been wanting to wear my thrifted (for $3.98) sweater, so I paired it with some Express shorts and a silver belt and went on my way.......

When I arrived, I was instructed to lay down on a massage type table just as I was.

So while laying on the table getting pinned, I wondered what would have happened had I worn jeans.  Because my legs were pinned in a few spots.  My feet, head, arms, and neck were pinned too.

And my eyes were squeezed shut for the duration. 

I was terrified.

But as it turns out, I survived.  And made an appointment for next week.

I will probably stick with shorts for that session too.

And next time I won't be shaking in my flip flops.


  1. I really like that shirt and acupuncture? You are brave

  2. Are there benefits if you don't have migranes? Now I'm thinking I can handle this and I'm curious to try it.

  3. Can't wait to hear if it helps, I get migranes too!


  4. Hope it helps with your migraines. I had them for most of my life & they're not fun. By the way....you looked perfect for acupuncture! Jan

  5. Super cute outfit!! Girl you are a brave soul, I could never do it.

  6. Your leopard top is so cute! And what a steal for $4! Was the acupuncture painful? I get so terrified of needles that I couldn't ever do it. I'm following now!

  14. Happily following you back you brave pinned girl :)

  15. Hmmm, i'm surprised they didnt have you take off your top or anything, like if you were getting a massage. I used to go to acupuncture all the time and love it! It really does help, i think anyway. I've had needles in my ears and all in my face. Hehe....Glad you could go! Hope it helps your migraines.
