I am in a fantastic mood! I
think the colorfulness of my skirt is the reason; it just put a smile on my
face as soon as I put it on this morning. Don’t you just love when
something as simple as a piece of clothing can make you smile?
Okay on to the back story of
this skirt, who doesn’t love a good story! This is another fabulous piece from
Forever 31; yep I renamed the store yesterday. I fell in love with a
dress I saw Melanie wearing on an episode of “The Game” back in 2007,
yep that long ago. This dress was close enough to satisfy me, just one
problem it was a “short maxi”. Meaning it only came to my
ankles, none the less it still came home with me. I wore it a few times
but the halter area on the dress was a little more revealing than I cared for
so she sat dormant until this week when I saw this pic. Isn’t that skirt beautiful! Well
for $180 is should be, unfortunately the bargainista in me is torn on if I
should splurge on it.
So I used Ciara’s skirt as my
inspiration for today’s Bloggers Do It Better challenge. I cut
off the halter and thankful there was elastic under the bust-line of the dress
so that’s all I had to do. I have brand new maxi skirt that I love.
So, I want
you to tell about a purchase you agonized over, did you look for a substitute,
did you break down and buy the item or did you just say forget it all together? Let me add I found the skirt at Neiman
Marcus Last Call online for $99 and they are having a 30% off sale site wide,
and guess what? Yep, you guess it, the skirt was sold out!
