Jackpot!

I have been wearing lots more skirts lately. I love the way it feels. I love the way men hold doors for me.

I have been haunting the summer clearance racks looking for skirts. Since I do not yet sew--although I am working on it (slowly)--I am still limited to what is in stores. And since I've hardly worn skirts for years outside of church and formal occasions, I'm starting almost from scratch.

I've had pretty good luck on the clearance racks, but today was the best. I got a beautiful charcoal gray wool jersey Jenne Maag skirt that had been over $300 for less than $30. The shape is gorgeous and it has just a touch of spandex, so it has a teeny bit of stretch and *lots* of movement.

I spent more on it than I've been spending in my clearance-shopping outings but it is classic, well-made and beautiful.

I'd love to find some good, lined, winter skirts. Congratulations of the great deals!

You should check out Blair web site. They have a nice skirt on sale for $10! I just ppicked some up because at that price it is cheeper than sewing one.

Isn't it nice to wear a skirt? I like dresses because you don't have to buy a top to match! I've been looking for end-of-season sales on dresses and found some pretty good deals so far! And yes, having doors opened is definitely a perk...
