This Incredible Skirt!

Today is my last day in Tucson (big sigh).  The weather has been perfect and I've had a wonderfully reviving visit!

We visited Buffalo Exchange earlier in the week. If you don't know of Buffalo Exchange, it's a really cool place.  Like a thrift store (clothes/shoes/accessories only), but only current styles. Prices are a little higher than a thrift store, but a lot less than at a regular store.  While shopping, Roxy Red says from the other end of the store, "Steph - I found the PERFECT skirt for you!"  And here it is!  It was even in my size!

It's got a tea party scene on the bottom with teapots and teacups embroidered throughout.  It's also lined and has this lovely turquoise trim on the bottom.  It is just such a sweet skirt!

And the story gets better!  Here's what I paid for it:

And here's the original price for this unworn Ann Taylor LOFT skirt. 
It's just a cool thing when the serendipitous parts of life bless us like this!

Love, Love, Love that skirt.
And a bargain. I am doing the happy dance for you, Stephanie.

Yes, it is wonderful when one discovers a little treasure when least expected! Enjoy wearing your beautiful skirt. Perhaps you can model it for us when you have a chance.

Have a Happy Day and safe travels home.

That is a great skirt. I know you will really enjoy wearing it. My favorite apparel with a tea theme are my teapot patterned socks. I've almost worn them out.
