Continuing my Monday Sassy Fashionista Fall-Fashion Preview with another lucky online-sales find.
One that came with a big fashion oops.
I‘ve been looking to add a new midi-length, stretchy but still-stylish black skirt for fall.
One that would feel at home with well-loved Birkie’s while the weather still allows, or with cold-weather fashion boots from ankle to over the knee.
I scratched that 2022 fashion itch when I took a chance on an Anthropologie sale skirt/tank set for a little less than half its original price.
I‘m always a little unsure that sales items online will be of quality, good fit and fabric.
I was delighted this cute set kind of surpassed my expectations.
With one exception.
The top still included the clunky round, black-sensor tag that no amount of spirited tugging will remove.
In short, I will have to go into a store to get it removed.
I thought about just leaving it on. It actually looks kind of cool because it’s black and funky and blends into the fabric.
But then I imagined setting off sensors every retail place I entered and having to explain to sassy sales reps that I wasn’t wearing hot goods.
If you know what I mean.
Which also means a trip to Anthro in person is now on the calendar.
Always a dangerous stop for me.
I’ll probably just send hubby in since he will be with me on that trip.
On the plus side of things, I love the skirt.
The fabric is good enough to wear in cooler weather. It will look great with a tank and sandals, or with a chunky fall sweater and boots.
It has a partial slip, so there’s no surprising peek a boo.
Adding a little side embellishment of loose belting and reasonable side slits gives it a cool factor, and allows one to walk upstairs with it on, making it a fashion winner.
Catch my fashion drift, Kim K?
It’s Anthropologie: The Shoales. Two Piece. Black. I got it in a medium. Comfy.
You can check out the sale section online if you’re interested.
You might get lucky like me.
Minus the sensory Oops….
I’m thinking I can use it to play witchy for Halloween, too.
Already have the hat and broom.
But that’s for another sassy blog another day.
Fashion tongue in holiday chic.
Is a long black skirt something that you find useful in your wardrobe year-round, too?
