When Ross saw this skirt on me his first reaction was “I like it but you do realize that some little old lady wore that to church every Sunday and then died in it.” Eiw, thanks for the image. I like to think I’ve re-vamped it a bit, however. I’m about 5’10″, so this high-waisted, knee-length skirt probably fit at the waist and hit the ankles on the little old lady in question. That’s what I love about the thrifting, one dead old lady’s trash is another non-dead young lady’s treasure!

It’s no secret that I love high-waisted, lady-like skirts. I know not everyone can wear them (again, I’m 5’10″), but are you digging this look? Have you rocked a skirt that clearly once belonged to a dead old lady?
