Modcloth Is My New Best Friend

My first order from Modcloth came – three full skirts – and I am in love! I have always wanted to be able to wear skirts, but I could never find any that fit me well. My mom and I tried to make a skirt a few years ago from a Cynthia Rowley pattern, but we couldn’t get the waist right, so we gave up. That was before I knew the magic of skinny belts. Here are the three skirts that I bought.


Stitch Fix #3 – February

This was my request: “This time I would like dresses and/or skirts. Think Zooey Deschanel. Maybe a cardigan? Nothing too drape-y. Everything must be work appropriate (conservative charter school). Please try to send me clothes that are long enough. Thanks!”

I pinned and pinned. My pinterest board was full of fun patterned fit-and-flare dresses in colorful fabrics, full skirts with structured waistbands, and a few cardigans.
