THREADS

Do you ever forget you thrifted something great and then come across it later and realize you've been missing out on some good outfits?? I must have thrifted this skirt several months ago. I folded it up (thus the wrinkles) and put it at the bottom of my skirt drawer and never wore it. On Sunday, as I was looking for something to go with my grey top and necklace from the lovely Laura of Roots & Feathers (which is so beautiful and goes with everything), I stumbled across this forgotten skirt. It's extremely comfortable, pairs well with neutrals AND has pockets. Which is always tops in my book. ;)

  13. Thought you might be interested to know that I owned this very J Crew in the early 90s, and I've often wished I hadn't parted with it!
