Real Momma, Real Style #46

This was the little outfit that wouldn’t quit. I tried to send this skirt back, but it wouldn’t let me. Something about needing postage…pish posh!

I love this skirt to death, I just was apparently having a fat moment when it first arrived cause I just didn’t like the way it made my hips look. So I packaged it up for return, put it in my car, and it sat.

Sweater: Gap, Top: TJMaxx, Skirt: c/0 eShakti, Shoes: Target, Watch: Michael Kors (gift)

Who knows how long later, I finally remembered to drop it off. In the box at the Post Office it went and back onto the site to pick out my replace I went. Until a few days later when I got a message from my apartment office that I had a package…but I wasn’t expecting anything. Oh, postage, you need postage? You greedy little skirt!

With the skirt now back in my aparment, I couldn’t resist trying it on just one more time. Maybe I magically lost weight? Maybe I was just tired and didn’t see it right? Maybe LJ handprints on the mirror were distorting what I saw?

Maybe the skirt just knew better than I did that it belonged here :)

For more great fashion, I’m linking up to What I Wore Wednesday on The Pleated Poppy. You should too!

  1. Great skirt!! I love the way it found its way back to you, and I’m glad you’re going to keep it. It looks good on you.

    I have had the same thing happen, by the way, with clothes I put in my donation pile, that never quite make it out of the room. After a while, I pick them up again and voila, back into my closet they go. :)

    Hi there! I was just looking at this skirt on eShakti, and thinking, “I’ve seen this somewhere before…”. Then I remembered your story of how this skirt earned it’s way into your closet! Can you please tell me a little about the colors? It looks blue, ecru, and tan trim, but not sure if that’s true to life. You always look great!!
