Pinspiration Tuesday

There are times when I buy something I think is really cool, then it just sits in my closet.

And sits. And sits.

I occasionally do this with things that I am slightly intimidated to wear (don’t know what to wear it with, it’s just stuffed in a corner, doesn’t fit like I remember). But I have found the outfits I feel the most comfortably confident in are the ones I throw on. This skirt (that I bought back in December, here) was one of those intimidating pieces. And it was just so nice that Pintrest solved my wearer’s-block!

This kind of day is my kind of day.

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
