Orange You Glad

Sunday, April 25, 2010
I snagged this J.Crew skirt at the Plato's Closet in Provo. It's such a fun print! My closet is lacking in color and bold prints so I had to snatch it up as soon as I saw this.

  89. I was in Provo last weekend; didn't have time to hit Plato's closet, but did hit the Shade & Down East Outfitters.

    We have a Plato's Closet here in LV, but last time I went was a bomb. Maybe I should try it again.

  94. I just found this skirt at Goodwill for $5 and LOVE how you put it together! I can't wait to wear it :)

    ReplyDelete
  95. That's so funny!!! $5. So awesome. I'm actually selling it now because it rides up a little too high for me! :(

    ReplyDelete
  96. Oh no! Well, mine was too big so it was either ebay or alter. The pattern was too cute to not wear, so $25 later (so much for the $5 skirt!) I'm having it made into a respectable mini skirt. Can't wait! Thanks for the reply :)
