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!

    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.

      Awww thank you! I have a dress like that too but I cant wear leggings with it. I plan on selling it. Maybe someone else can get better use out of it!

    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!

      Thank you! You hit the nail right on the head! Im glad you can relate! 🙂

    I love your belt! Where did you get it?

    • May 22, 2014 / 1:53 am

      Thank you! I got it from Old Navy like 4yrs ago.

    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. 🙂

      I think we’re related! I do the same exact thing. I just cant let go! LOL

    It looks fine on you, but I understand what you mean. There are some clothes I have that just don’t ‘feel’ right on me even if they look fine.

    • May 22, 2014 / 1:30 am

      Exactly! You just know when something feels right. Its not ugly by any means but I just dont like it on me.

    Looks stunning. I really like it on you.

    Glad you jumped in! You are wearing it, yes ma’am you are! Very cute.

      Awww thank you so much! I like the print, just dont like how the skirt looks on me. 🙁

    I think that skirt looks great on you.

    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!

    • May 22, 2014 / 1:23 am

      It wasnt the colors it was the fit. It’s kind of poofy on me. I doubt Ill be wearing it again. It will probably go in my “items to sell” pile.

    I think it’s pretty.

    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

  20. May 22, 2014 / 1:26 am

    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.

    • May 22, 2014 / 1:57 am

      Awww thank you very much! I too have a few items just sitting in my closet. Thats why shopping online can be such a headache!

  21. May 22, 2014 / 3:40 am

    I like it. I’ll take it off your hands. 😉 No, but seriously, I will.

    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!

    • May 26, 2014 / 3:57 am

      Thank you! You can see the poof but trust me, its poofy! LOL
