Nonetheless, I ignored the temptation for weeks. Then I started listening to the voice that reminded me that I'd been looking for the perfect denim skirt for ages. Then just when I thought I might responsibly choose this new sensible wardrobe addition, they were completely out of my size. My Mastercard was saved.
Until they replenished the stock or someone returned a too-big or too-small or not-quite-room-in-this-month's budget skirt in exactly my size. And I did the deed. Ordered. Waited and waited. Picked up the package. Nervously tried on the skirt, knowing that returns are always a hassle (except for the wonderful Gap which makes them brilliantly easy).
And I am a very happy camper. This one's definitely a keeper, even if I have to hike it up rather indecently to ride my bike to and from the ferry. I could have wished for a walking slit, for a stride of more than the 18-20 inches this gives me, but I love the hint-of-90s length and silhouette, reinvigorated by just-soft-enough denim in a wash I love. Also enamoured of the raw hem. And the back pockets are flattering! Just sayin' . . . .
So, let's see, questions for you: Do you have a great denim skirt or are you still looking or have you no interest in such a garment (they can be tricky, I know!)?
Do you order online often? regularly? Is that a bit dangerous or do you have some sensible parameters in place? And how often do you have to return items? Is that a hassle? Or do you have a system?
And if none of these questions grab your attention, just comment at will. I'm always pleased to hear from you. Happy Wednesday!
