One of the changes I have been making in my shopping, is to incorporate more online purchases into my way of buying things. I have been pretty much hesitant up until this year for my various reasons. But as I am aging, I have to say, sometimes it is just preferable to sit at the computer and browse than to drive from store to store looking for that one thing that you feel you have to have.
This leads me up to today’s post. My latest buy that fits my under $25 focus is this print maxi skirt that I found online for $22. Several responses I have to this buy is, first of all, it looks exactly like it did on the website. Because I am 5’10” I was concerned it would not be long enough and pleasantly I found it to be perfect in length. The colors are vibrant and the fit is true to size.
What I did not particularly pay attention to is the fact that it is not cotton. Ordering an African print item, you assume that it would be so. Unfortunately this skirt is fully polyester and kind of shiny in appearance. I was not expecting that. However in going back and checking the website, it did state it was 95% polyester and 5% spandex. I just did not notice that. So that mistake was totally on me. I will pay attention next time, to every part of the descriptor.
So here it is. While it might not be something I will wear often, it does photograph well. And it is not too bad at all.
I am still not fully sold on buying my clothes online, but I am not ruling it out totally either. Sometimes it has it’s purpose and sometimes you just have to go into the stores and try things on. Wouldn’t you agree?
