Plus, any day that starts with getting to say: "I told you so" is a good day. I picked up this skirt at Value Village when I made my usual trek when I was visiting my parents. My mom and I were discussing it, and she said it was a nice skirt, just not very work appropriate. I took that as a challenge. How did I do??
I did say I'd give Bed-Bug dressing tips on Tuesdays, so my tip today is: "Think outside your usual thoughts on 'business' and 'party' and wear what you can find!". This skirt is definitely suited for party. All I want to do is buy a sequined tank top and hit up a dance club. But grab a blazer, a more conservative underpinning and I'm set for the office! (Please note: I wanted to do a black blazer, but I couldn't find it. I think it's probably in the stash of clothes in Scott's trunk). I LLLOOOVVVEEE this skirt because it feels slightly Edwardian (or as Scott prefers: Tim Burtonian - though I guess that's usually more Gothic Victorian... hmm...)
Edited later to add: Ok, the skirt is too short, mostly because it acts like mini blinds being drawn up when I sit down. Also, it's friggin' beautiful here, so the streets are soupy with melted snow, so I had to change to go grocery shopping, since I got at least 3 "booters" from the bus stop to the apartment. (Special prize* for the first person who knows what a "booter" is!!)
