Welcome back to another Thrifty Tuesday!
I am still searching for the perfect red skirt, and I thought I had found it. Until I got home. I bought this:
This skirt is a size 8. I can wear anything from a 4 to a 10 in skirts (weird, right?). There’s no brand tag in it. I probably should have examined it a little more closely in the store, because I could barely put it on. And let’s just forget about zipping it. To be fair (to the skirt and my hips), I think it’s just the lining that’s too tight. I’m still going to look for the perfect red skirt, but I might toy around with removing the lining of this one.
This next skirt is one that I’ve been eyeing for about a month. I told myself that if it was still there this time, I would get it.
I love these pleats! This is by Worthington, which thoroughly surprised me. I rarely bought J.C. Penney’s Worthington brand when I worked there. Their selection has obviously improved.
I thought this shirt would look smashing with the red skirt, but really, it’s just smashing. I can’t pass up a good ruffle, emphasis on the good. My inner Gleek* thought that the brand’s name was heelarious. New Directions!
And last, but certainly not least as I have been eyeing the black sweater section of my Goodwill for a couple months looking for a new one, I bought this sweater. I’ve been wanting a simple black sweater for work. Just one of those ‘throw on and go’ type things that I don’t have to worry about matching with a certain pair of pants or a skirt. This one is perfect. And the simple details on the cuffs sold it for me.
I think I did well this shopping trip, even with the too-tight red skirt. I mean, I did talk myself out of buying a pair of cream, high-waisted sailor pants. Small victories, right?
*Actually, let’s be serious. There is no ‘inner’ about my Gleek-y tendencies.
