I fell in love with this Express skirt months and months ago, and have been patiently waiting for it to go on major sale. I gave up on it a while back, but the other day I happened to stop in Express to look for some work clothes when I spotted it on the clearance rack. Of course they were out of my size, and I almost cried to an employee. I was walking out of the store when I thought..."Heck, let me just try on a different size and hope for the best." Well, sure enough, it fit! A bit snug...the type of snug where eating a full meal and sitting hurts, but I will make it work. I don't dress up too often, even on a girls night, so I thought the only occasion I'll have to wear it is a wedding. One of my friends from college got married this past weekend, and thankfully it was warm enough to wear this outfit. I did feel my look was not fall appropriate and a tad out of my comfort zone with the skin showing, but I took the risk. I bought the top last minute at Forever 21 for $5!
