...I should have known it wouldn't last in Paris! My husband saw me staring greedily at all the brands that we don't have in Lyon and offered to take me to Banana Republic and Marks and Spencers. I did not find anything there that fit right despite liking and trying on a LOT of stuff so I was quite dejected.
Hubs is such a darling. He said 'doesn't Zara really suit you these days? I am sure you will find something there!' So off we went to the giant Zara at Blvd. Hausmann. I picked up just two items to try and both fit! The first (pic 1) is a leopard print skirt that hits me slightly below my knee. I am planning to shorten this just a tad. It is 100% cotton so perfect for summer!
The second (pic 2&3) is a lace skirt. This one hits me right above my knee and looks so great on! I am so happy I found it just when Angie wrote her post on lace skirts! It is polyester but unlined. Do you think it would work for summer?
We also just happened to pop into Mango, where I bought this red skirt (pic 4). It is also cotton and seeing how much I wear my red pants, I am sure it will get a LOT of use.
I really should be repentant. But these skirts are so awesome! Plus, I got my result today just after we finished shopping and I got 86% this semester!!! So how can I be sad?
I promise I will be as good as gold now and I will only shop during the sales end of june.
What do you think of my purchases? I am going back home tomorrow so I will put up styled pics then!
