I was just thinking today that I should explain where this Coach crossbody bag came from since I usually wear fairly inexpensive outfits. I mentioned it earlier at some point, but that was way back when I first started my blog. So, anyway, it was a gift from my aunt, uncle and cousin when I finished my M.A. in English Composition two years ago. (Let’s hear it for out-of-work English majors!) I tend to feel a little self-conscious carrying a Coach bag, yet I really love the style and size of this one. It’s perfect to wear if I’m out walking around all day.
I just got this skirt back from the dry cleaners yesterday and had to wear it right away. It’s one of my favorite Glendale Goodwill finds, and I can’t get over how awesome the color is. And the little speckled buttons at the waist. And the length, fit and comfortable elastic in the waistband.
I also got some new-to-me thrifted skirts back from the dry cleaners, so I’m looking forward to wearing those over the next week! I feel like my skirt collection might be a little too extensive now, though, and I’ve been thinking about using the name of my blog as an excuse to weed out a few skirts that I don’t love as much to reduce the number back to 29. Our closet is too packed — my clothes are on one side, Jasen’s are on the other — and I have to admit that some of my skirts just don’t fit very well and/or haven’t been working with the rest of my wardrobe.
