Good Morning America

And back to school I go!

So from my capitol city love, I bring this patriotic beauty.  Purchased from my favorite vintage boutique in all of DC–Via Gypset.  I happened to catch a glimpse of it hanging in the back behind a closed door…aka it was not for sale yet…But as my going-away gift to myself, I went back and HAD to have it.

The day I left the city, I rented a car, packed it with my many suitcases, drove to Woodley Park, and bought it.  Good ideas.

A 13-hour car ride and day of unpacking later, this is the Evansville debut!

Fancy Find: Yellow, Skulls, & Stripes

So this whole Buffalo Exchange thing, I am a fan.

In a city filled with fancy people, I am bound to find some fancy pieces (that I can afford).

Check this:

Fancy Find of the Iconic Kind

Iconic.

Ralph Lauren was the first label I fell in love with.  (The fact I could correctly pronounce the name without tripping over an accent may have helped).

I have this thing where it’s nearly impossible for me to find affordable garments that fit, cover skin, etc.  Legs.  They are helpful if you need something on the top shelf.  Don’t ask me to go pants shopping with you.  So when I tried on this lovely skirt at Buffalo Exchange, I fell in love.

Even more so when I saw the price ($21 buckaroos).

Shot straight to heaven (as my jaw remained on the floor) as I saw the label.Ralph Lauren Black Pleated Skirt
