I have far too many skirts, but lately I have been on the search for a real leather skirt. I have a few fake ones, but it’s not the same. I have discovered that they can be quite expensive, so started scouring the charity shops.
Last weekend I found one, labeled up in my size. I took it into the changing room…. And it was nowhere near my size. it was at least two sizes too small.
My search continued. Today, in TK Max, I saw another leather skirt, labeled up in my size. I took it in to the changing rooms and it fitted perfect…. Slight snag.
The price was £110. There is no way that I could possibly justify spending that much money on a skirt, no matter how well it fitted and how it felt…. So it went back on the rail. I did buy a few things, and my wife bought some amazing stuff.
We get home, and my wife is going through one of her wardrobes. A few things had fallen off the hangers. As she was collecting them off the bottom of the wardrobe, she said “Oh you might like this”…. She handed me a knee length leather skirt. She bought it some years ago, but it never fitted. She kept it, as she has many of her clothes, as a “one day” item. I tried it on, and it fitted very nicely indeed. I am now the very happy and very proud owner of a knee length leather skirt. I’m so happy that I resisted spending £110 on the one in TK Max. I’m also so happy that my wife has stuff that she has forgotten about hanging around (or laying on the floor of) her lesser used wardrobes 🙂
