Pleated Maxi, Please



First of all, I need to confess.  I sort of failed with the spending freeze, but before you start judging and shaking your head at me, I only technically spent $5.00 after I used my, ever so handy, store credit. I mean, if I can go 30 days and only be out five bucks, I consider that a ginormous success and plan to pat myself on the back.  Justification: This skirt is a versatile, staple item that I will wear for years to come.  Realization: We all know that I will NOT wear this for years to come, but I will definitely get $5.00 worth of wear out of it.  Whew, I feel better getting that off my chest.

I will say, that maxi skirts are one of my favorites right now.  Besides the fact that they are cute and comfy, they hide my prickly legs when I am too lazy to shave. Yes, I still shave my legs.  I haven't jumped on the laser hair removal bandwagon and I am okay with that.  Am I one of the last ladies standing that hasn't taken the laser plunge?  Please tell me there are some of you out there that still get a little stubble.

Cheers to confessions, hiding prickly legs and of course the trusty maxi skirt!

I'm dying to find a maxi skirt, I'm still on the hunt but I love yours! And nope, still shaving my legs here too, and that's on a GOOD day. Stuble is a regular around these parts and I don't know that I'll ever get that laser business.

$5 for that skirt was definitely worth the tiny interruption in your spending freeze! Loving the pleats. And I still shave my legs too...isn't the laser really expensive?

I still shave my legs...occasionally. I'm on Day 3 of my shopping freeze and holding strong. I do have a $25 The Limited credit that expires on the 22nd, so I may have to break the freeze...eek.
$5 was totally worth it for that skirt.
