In a fit of craziness over the tiered ruffle skirt, I bought it at FP. Then ofcourse as it always happens, I came to my senses and said, "What the HECK was I thinking?" The skirt is soooo cute. But I feel just a tad bit ridiculous wearing the thing walking around with my 5 year old. Pershnaps if I was in my (very) early 20s, this wouldn't be an issue. But we ladies of certain d'age know that tiered cake-like ruffles and the 3-0 just don't mesh well.
So I made the return, and just in time, too! Saw this morning the skirt is in FS -- Pardon! -- Spring Sale for $79.99. In its place I bought the linen Playa dress in white, the Crystal Chain necklace, and the Featherweight cotton v-neck cardigan. I walked out spending like double the price of the skirt, but I think i can pull off this look much easier and I still get to satisfy my whims for full-effect ruffles.
The Featherweight cotton v-neck cardi I'm wearing in the actual outfit is a much paler, softer color than what I substituted it for in Polyvore. I'm actually pretty impressed with the cotton used thus far. Hopefully it doesn't fall apart anytime soon and keeps its shape. I'm not a fan of the *new* Jackie, per se. I think it's a little too short for my frame, and I don't like the stretchiness... It feels a little cheap. I plan to test out the Featherweight today and see how she does. They're the same price and so far from the looks alone, I might be back to purchase a few more. Plus it has the pretttttiieesst glass looking buttons.
I'll update as I see how it does.
Have a great day everyone!
