Lessons Cher (from Clueless) taught me

There's no shame in having "lucky clothes."
Tenacity is most impactful when delivered politely.
And perhaps most important: take photos. You can't always trust mirrors.

With that in mind although I was pretty sure this See by Chloé bargain skirt from Yoox was going back (it is flimsy, somewhat see through, and unlined), I took photos. And they confirmed my suspicions. Even on sale with a stacked code, this skirt isn't worth my closet space. I like the print but I don't have room for sheer and flimsy. It is too short to wear sans tights so c-ya.

I think it looks fabulous on you!!! But you know what works and doesn't. Sad though!

Oh damn! I really thought the lessons were going to be:

- always have something baking when a boy comes over
- learn a new word each day and try to use it in a sentence
- high school boys are immature; always try to date college boys

And for what it's worth, I love the skirt on you!

Archives, I agree! Such a bummer.

Anon, thanks so much! I promise in person it isn't worth keeping.

Pamela, thank you for the compliment.

Roxy, you have me in stitches! I have indeed learned those lessons but I was thinking mostly of those related to clothes/my closet. haha I dreamed many dreams of someday having that very beta closet software program she had that cataloged her garments and assembled them!

Most excellent movie reference! If that was a smidge longer it would be worth keeping. It's a very pretty skirt.

Oh, what a shame! I love this skirt in the pictures.

erin said...

awww! sorry, but i do think it's super cute!

Wow...I think the skirt is truly STUNNING on you.

Jessica said...

It's such a pretty skirt, but I wouldn't keep a flimsy piece either. You'd think that a designer brand could step it up.

such a pretty print, too bad it didn't work out for you
