I should have thought through my choice of shoes a little better because these aren’t all day walking shoes! And because I wasn’t in my usual building, I wasn’t able to switch into my uber-fashionable white sneakers. I wasn’t going to cry or anything that dramatic but my feet are sore from all of the walking up and down the halls all day. I liked the way this outfit looked in the reflection this morning but I'm just not sure about it now that I've seen the pictures.
In December I went to a local thrift store in search of a wool plaid skirt. The stylings of Jill from Spoils of Wear inspired me to try out the look myself. I wasn’t keen on spending a lot of money on a look I wasn’t sure I was going to like. When I went in to the store I spotted the brown/grey/black number with an orange price tag that said $4.99. I kept looking and found a pleated, blue tartan one as well, also with an orange sticker that said $4.99. Seeing as it was December, the month for giving (not buying for myself) I was really hesitant to get both so I chose the one in the picture. When I got up to the counter to pay I found out that everything with the little orange sticker was $.99 so I ran back and grabbed the blue one as well – two skirts for less than $2! Winner – Winner – Chicken Dinner!!!
I love the fact that the skirt on the left has so many neutral colors. It leaves the door open to pair it with so many different things. Did I mention that the original tags were still on the skirt from 1970something? The one on the right reminds me of an old lady version of the Britney Spears "Oops I did it again" skirt. I'm not sure if I'm going to shorten it a little (not Britney short) or leave it as is. I suppose I'll have to wear it the length it is now just to try it out and then decide.
