First a little back story on the skirt...
When we "popped in" to Anthropologie I swore off any regular priced items.
That is a given. I'm sorry but I just can't pay $70 for a t-shirt.
When I took three items into the fitting rooms and one of them didn't fit I was relieved.
Then I put on this skirt...
And the t-shirt...
When I came out to show my husband I told him in no uncertain terms...
"Please...just do us both a favour and tell me this looks awful on me. Just say it."
I gave him an out and he didn't take it.
The good thing is they were both on sale, the skirt less 50% and the t-shirt less 70%.
So how do you wear a bold printed maxi skirt?
With attitude of course.
"YO YO YO! I got me a maxi and she dah star o' dah show!"
Just let that maxi skirt be the high maintenance diva she is and don't let any other pieces compete with her splendour.
Do you have any ways of tricking yourself out of buying something you know you don't need? Please...share! My methods aren't working.
PS...I wore another boldly printed maxi skirt from Anthro
Or a smaller printed maxi here.
