Welcome to my closet lovely, gray, taffetta, maxi skirt. You take my breath away both with your beauty and your false size. Because although your size tag says you are a 12, that stifling feeling around my waist says you are not. But nonetheless, once I shed this months water weight you will be sliding around my waist just fine.
These are the days of hard economic times and shrinking closets (if you are fashion or personal style blogger) and I know that my $15 investment at the consignment store where I found you was sound judgment because I have so many great things in store for you. Holiday parties, future weddings and when I get bored with you, as long as you still fit, I will be taking you to tailor where you will be transformed into a, shorter and even better stunner like this beauty, Expo Taffeta Fit & Flare Dress, now on sale at Kohl’s ($130). Muah lovely piece! Onto the hanger and into the closet for you until Thanksgiving.
What I am Wearing:
Top: This is my black one shoulder H&M dress worn as a top.
Skirt: Jessica McClintock, grey taffeta skirt (Consignment store). Gray maxi skirts must be really popular this season. Most of the similar grey maxi skirt, like this **NEW**Smuta Flute Skirt sold at Nordstroms ($152) found on Lyst.com, were unfortunately sold out and/or were way over my $100 price point. A search on eBay yielded this similar gray satin skirt ($112.10)Yikes!
Shoes: Nine West Patent leather t-strap heels.
