Why So Serious?

Happy Hump Day all!

Have you ever loved an item online but once you got it you were completely turned off? This skirt in this post is an example of that.  I lusted after this skirt for almost a month before I decided to get it. When it arrived, I was like “I’m NEVER wearing this skirt!”. It looked poofy and odd on me.  I was completely disappointed with my choice. Since the skirt was custom made, I couldn’t return it for a refund. I kicked myself for hours for making a poor decision.  After letting the skirt flounder in my closet for several months, I’m pulling it out today. Why? Because it’s not that serious!  There are people out there who would love to have clean clothes to wear.  Honestly, I felt silly for being disappointed over a skirt.  Life is too short to sweat the small stuff so while I’m still not crazy about it, I’ll be just fine!

How do you deal with clothes that disappoint?

Have a wonderful day!

  1. I don’t see anything poofy or weird about the skirt. I like the attitude you’ve adopted. 🙂
    I have a dress that is a bit too short. It’s fine when I first put it on, but sometimes it rides up a bit and your can see my bike shorts in the back. So, I usually wear it with leggings / Capri leggings. Problem solved.

  2. I think the skirt is so gorgeous, however I know how you feel, and I’ve bought skirts like this before and been so disappointed, thought they were so poofy and unflattering on me. But girl you worked it, it looks fab!

  3. You may not care much for it but it looks nice on you. I like it’s shape. I tend to keep things I’ve fallen out of love with in my closet (hoping for someday..and it never arrives) until I get tired of looking at it years later and then dump it off on Goodwill. 🙂

  4. I love the bright colors!! It says “summer” to me! Funny how the thinks I like least on me get the most compliments. You rocked it girl!!

  5. Seriously, I think the skirt is flattering on you. Are the bright colors bothering you? The chambray shirt looks great, but if you want to tone it down some more, opt for black top and accessories, and pull eyes up by popping it with an orange necklace. I hope you wear in again!

  6. Well, if it counts for anything, I LOVE that skirt on you! You manage to wear skirts very well. Me? If I wear a skirt, no matter what, I feel frumpy. I think it’s my shoe collection – it does not lend itself to skirts very well. You are looking fab, as always, Georgette. 🙂 xo

    p.s. if you have Facebook and want to add me, my name is Yvette Rydman – I’d love an add!

  7. LOVE that skirt. I would take it off your hands in a heart beat.
    Keep wearing it and rocking it, you look amazing.

  8. I’ve bought quite a few items of the internet that have then sat in my cupboard unworn because I didn’t like them on me but I think that skirt is beautiful and you look beautiful in it. I think you are really photogenic and have a great sense of style.

  9. Hey, I was expecting a tutu before I scrolled down to the picture! I think it looks spectacular on you and I don’t see “poofy” at all. Love the print too!
