You know when you stop by a store you've never heard of before, find something you love, and go all, "omg, thank God I did exactly what I did today or else I never would've found this!!!111"?
Okay, so that was super specific but you know what I mean.
Well today I had the minor epiphany of: couldn't that apply to stores that we purposely avoid as well? Not the stores of poor taste ::coughAmericanApparelcough:: but the corny stores you know you wouldn't find anything of interest in. Isn't there a small possibility that somewhere in those racks of graphic tees and polyester blend twin sets there might just be one dimly glittering gem?
As an experiment to just that, I thoroughly browsed the stock at Target, Kohl's, JC Penny, and even Sears. ::le gasp!:: Via their websites of course. You didn't actually think I visited those places, did you?? Below is the expectedly short, but sweet list of items worthy of our attention.
Rouched Pencil Skirt
You really can't go wrong will a good fitting pencil skirt. The cute contrasted bow detail gives it just a touch of sweetness.
It could do for a better pattern but I like the shape. If you're anything like me, you'd pair this with some funky booties and an understated clutch for a night out with the girls.
Not surprisingly, I did not find one thing at JC Penny or Sears. And to think the former had the nerve to take over the Manhattan Mall. Hmph!
Coming soon, I'll check out what's been good with Miss Sixty and round up what's hot at the mall so you don't have to.
