Responsibility aside, if you don’t have a maxi skirt by April 2013, you should really fix that. There’s nothing more comfortable than a jersey maxi skirt when you have to wear clothes, let me tell you. Not to mention they go with nearly everything. (See how I expertly wore a maxi skirt with a silk pajama shirt here. Expertly.)
Yes, that is eleven (11) colors for you to choose from, all made of beautiful, comfortable, stretchy jersey. All for $16 each.
