So nice, I bought it twice
sweater - BR, skirt - Old Navy, necklace - J.Crew, tights - Hue, shoes - Nine West
I mentioned in a previous post that I have no problems with buying multiples, especially if it fits into 1 of 2 categories:
1) It's a basic
2) It's inexpensive
Because I do have a lot of multiples in my closet, I've been trying to be more critical about which items are "so nice, buy it twice" as one of my new years resolutions. So when I saw the black version of one of my favourite skirts of the season go on sale at Old Navy, I passed it by. It was super cheap ($13.99 at the time), but seemed a little trendy to get two of. Then I saw it go down to $11.99 and I again applauded my restraint and passed it by.
Last week, I found the skirt for... wait for it... $3.81. Suffice to say I caved.
Surprisingly enough, I actually think it might become one of my workhorse skirts for the rest of the season. It dresses up my basic sweaters like no other item in my wardrobe and since it's a cotton sateen, can be worn right into spring.
