What’s a Snowed In Fashionista to Do?

Posted on: January 31, 2014

Well, I have not been inspired to put together any outfits and been nursing a sinus headache that is now switching to include sneezing…. but cabin fever has set it….

So, I went shopping on Ebay….

I was in a mood for broomstick skirts for Spring and Summer…..

This black and white floral tickled my fancy and is now on it’s way to me…

Black and White looks and Florals  are going to be very strong this Spring, so I’ll be on trend! 

Next up is this brown sequined number….

Who doesn’t like a little bling with their boho looks?????

This is another one brown one with purple accents on the bottom by Coldwater Creek.

Since my previous broomstick skirts are all in bigger sizes before my weight loss, it is definitely time to invest in some my current size… while these are a great start, I doubt they will be it as I still need something in a more vibrant spring color….

And that won’t be a problem as Ebay has many to choose from…

It was fun to get started on replacing these much loved style of skirts that I love to swish around in for Spring and Summer with just a tank top or t-shirt and sandals..Not bad for winter with boots if it’s not snowing!!!!

Dear Readers , have you started shopping for spring , yet?  If so, what have you bought, if not do you have plans to buy something ????


I am grateful that I found something Fashion related to do as I wait for the snow to melt….

I am grateful for Ebay and the variety they offer at great prices…

I am grateful for my hardworking husband , who hasn’t skipped a beat in his new job due to the snow. 

I am grateful that my husband’s skills in training are so strong  and that his skills are noticed and appreciated! 

I am grateful that my kids are just crazy enough to head outside at 1am to build an igloo in the front yard and as I type this at 3 am are still at it!!!!  Remember they are 22, 18 and 13…

I am grateful for the sense of humor of my youngest who put on a song from Frozen to sing as they got geared up to go out.

I am grateful that I am a Mom who supports my children’s crazy whim for late night fun and made them hot chocolate!!!! 

I am grateful for three Snow Days and the surprised family time…

Great skirts, Tracey. I went through a few year period a few years ago where just about all I wore were these types of skirts. I think one reason was that at my bigger size I felt more hidden and comfortable in them. They’re still one of my favorite styles though and I still prefer my skirts to the ankle length or thereabouts.
I wonder if you could just sew up one side of your larger skirts (if they have an elastic waistband) to narrow them and make the waist smaller so you could still wear them?

I ‘ve thought about tryitng to sew a seam in the one elastic one, but my favorite has a side zipper….I love the coverage of the skirts similar to wearing pants but with the femininity and swish of the material creates the best of both worlds…
