Skirt Joy and Planet Love...

Like my skirt?  I absolutely adore it, and for more reasons that one might imagine...

You see, I purchased this Amanda & Chelsea skirt from an awesome consignment store in Cambridge, Massachusetts (The Garment District) last month while on vacation.  My little lovely still had all the original taggings on her; including the manufacturer's $98 price tag...

I, however, paid less than $20 for her.  She's a real find, too--leopard print, lined, pristine and made of this thick woven fabric that feels (and looks) oh so very rich.

Of course, I'm thrilled to have found such a fab bargain.  But, lover of this planet that I am, my pleasure also comes from a purchase that kept an unwanted garment from being discarded (hence, from a landfill).

I adore finding "unwanted" treasures. Don't you?

Joy & peace, T.
