There is a Dynamite clothing store near work so I dropped in. For my taste, they are geared for younger fashionistas. BUT -- I've read somewhere to try things coz you never know! I was drawn to this pretty purple pleat skirt for $8.
It also comes in a bright coral. The hemline is shorter than I am used to. I have been looking for this purple in tops which would go great with my existing red skirt.
The waist is elastic and doesn't look good on me without a belt. I have wide hips so I have to wear it low if I'm to avoid extra poofing. So fun to twirl in. My daughter saw me and she had to try the twirl. She said "Mommy, you're not fat. This skirt almost fits me." (Excuse the tshirt as it was a quick try-on before making dinner.)
It's good that I'm blogging this. I think I have made up my mind on whether to keep.
Have you tried this skirt? Shall I keep this?
