As I put this post up, I have a confession to make: I am a crop top addict. I have been living in them nonstop for the last few weeks. I think I have also accumulated a trillion of them. And my husband isn’t of any help either when it comes to this addiction. He himself at several occasions came home with a handful of them for me to try and keep. I know come winter time I will have to remedy this addiction. My second addiction also came out of nowhere. I hated stripes! yes I said it I hated stripes. I would always wonder who wants to buy these but this year as the stripes hit everywhere, I have become a big fan of them especially the typical black and white one! so simple yet there is so much you can do to upgrade it. Now lets take the skirt for this example! I first saw this h&m skirt on the website and I awaited its arrival eagerly….only to find out it will never make it to the stores in our state. I called all 3 stores near me and no one had seen the skirt. The skirt was sold out online except in size 2. SCORE i thought only catch- lately I have been in between 2 and 4 size at H&M….sometimes I fit a 2 and other times a 4. I mustered up courage and placed my first ever online clothing order. By the time I placed the ordered I had already looked for the skirt for over a month. All of a sudden it was spotted in a nearby mall and I decided to just try it on. WHOOPS i cant fit a 2! I decided to buy the 4….only to come home and realize I placed the 4 back on the rack and brought home another 2! Finally after owning two of these skirts and having to return them with my size not available in the store anymore, I finally spotted a 4 again online on the website! I immediately ordered it and thankfully this time everything worked out beautifully. I love the skirt and everyone who has heard about the fiasco of this story agreed that it was worth the drama. I mean girls who have heavier bottoms (aka me) just dont fit right in skater skirts and dresses. There is no twirling room but this skirt is perfect for our body type. So i had to have it! Unfortunately couple other family requested I find this for them only….well the skirt is nowhere to be found anymore to everyone’s disappointment.
Let me know what you think about it- was it worth the hassle?
