Outfit of the Week - Cheapskate in Stripes

I'm cheap, yo. This isn't new blog news. I learned the difference between cheap and frugal during the whole blender debacle and this post stands to once again prove that I am cheap. I have made a personal commitment to be really careful about spending a lot of money on clothes, yet somehow I found myself in the clothing section of Target (I know, how does that happen?!). I tried on this lovely pencil skirt that fit wonderfully and was on sale for $16. I felt too guilty so I didn't buy it. Then, I laid in bed that night dreaming about the skirt - "A perfect fit. A lovely rich violet. SIXTEEN DOLLARS. Why oh why didn't I buy it?!"  So you know what I did? I marched back into Target the next day and I bought the skirt. But guess what? It was marked down to $11. So, unfortunately I haven't learned my lesson on being a cheapskate yet :)

  4. I really, really, really like the simple way that you styled this outfit. It would be perfect for my office! I tend toward solid tops and patterned bottoms, though, but I think that it creates a really visually interesting look. :)

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
