Black Velvet Maxi Skirt
How is everyone's holiday going? I actually really love the time between Christmas and New Year's. I feel a little invincible. So much has happened in 2010 and I'm about to kick it out the door. I am so hopeful for the new year. Just you wait 2011, I have a feeling you are going to spectacular.
My Christmas was great. I flew out on Christmas Eve to visit my parents in Austin. It was incredibly relaxing to just lounge around the house and eat cookies and watch tons of cable television. I miss cable. On the day after Christmas, I got completely caught back up on the last season of Weeds. I got to spend lots of time with parents, and being an only child... I really like that. Anytime I can have all the attention to myself, of course, I totally prefer that.
I have a story for yall today. When I was in junior high and high school, I had this long black maxi skirt. It was stretchy polyester with a split that went right up the front right below my knees. When I walked, the flaps of the split would whip back and make this slapping noise. Although, I hated walking in that skirt, I loved the way it looked. Maxi skirts can look so elegant and feel so casual. Let's take the exhibit above. A black velvet maxi skirt (ahhhh!!!). I feel so classy and meanwhile I am sitting cross legged on my bed still wearing the same skirt (I'm writing this at night). I picked this baby up at Buffalo Exchange in Austin. I think the Buffalo Exchange in Austin is probably my favorite resale store in the world... yep.

By the way, I am slightly obsessed with Lands' End Canvas at the moment. I love all the stuff I got from them. And, they aren't paying me to say any of this, I just really love their stuff... true story.
