Skirt #1: Talbots Brand, lined wool, ankle-length wrap skirt with leather side buckle. Retail Price: Between $150 and $200 (maybe more). I actually considered buying this skirt when it was on clearance sale for about $50. I didn't. Now I'm really glad! Size 12.
Skirt #2: Name Brand (I can't remember which off the top of my head), Silk, 6-panel gore skirt. Mid-calf length. Retail price: Over $100? Also Size 12.
I love, love, love Talbots - they're my favorite store! Their clothes are high quality, I can walk in pull something off the rack or order from the catalog and know it will fit me and look nice. But, I only shop their sales because their clothes are way expensive. I usually hit the "Additional 50% off all sale items" and I have snagged some bargains - $32 for a $180 wool crape dress, an $8 silk dress that retails for around $210, a wrinkle resistant cotton blouse for $6.95 (retail $78).
I have yet to beat the price I paid for these two skirts here!
Price each: $1.50
Yep, you did read that right.
I had been praying about how I needed a black skirt or two in my wardrobe. I don't have any at the moment (in any length) and was debating whether to buy a lovely one I found online for $40.
No need to buy the on-line one now! :)
Additional perk? These are size 12. I've been in size 14 for a while. Talk about an ego boost!
