The Limited Trolled Me Today

20130417-225039.jpg

I was incredibly excited when The Limited Twitter account posted a picture of their new arrivals. Why? Feast your eyes on that beautiful bright green pencil skirt above! It’s a beauty, isn’t it?

I reposted the picture stating that the skirt would be mine. The Limited even retweeted my statement and the wheels were set in motion.

When I finally turned on my computer, I clicked the link to the new arrivals, so I could get a good look at it, as well as the price. Stand procedure, right?

Well, I scrolled up and down that page and never saw the skirt I fell in love with this afternoon. Well, I saw it, but it wasn’t the same as the one shared on Twitter.

We live in an era where photo filters are king. Just look at the success of Instagram. We slap a filter on almost every photo we take. It seems that The Limited altered the picture they shared, because the green I was salivating over is completely different than the shade of green for sale on their website. The green is identical to the green pencil skirt I scored from Express a few years ago. (Below)

It's pretty. It's so, so pretty!

I don’t need to get another standard green pencil skirt. I would have been alllllll over that bright, almost neon/lime green skirt, though.

The search continues!

ETA: The Limited’s Facebook page shows the true coloring of the skirt. So, they only pulled a fast one on Twitter users.

It’s Mine, All Mine!

It's pretty. It's so, so pretty!

It's pretty. It's so, so pretty!

I got my beautiful green pencil skirt from Express back yesterday. Shortly after I bought it, there was an accident that required a trip to the dry cleaners.

The picture doesn’t really show the vibrant green of this skirt. It’s soooooo pretty and I’m glad I finally snagged one! A tip for others who may be looking for one: don’t go by what’s available online! Check out your local store.

Last week, I went to the product page on Express.com and saw that it was back in stock. The problem was that the only size available was a zero. Now, I’m thin, but I’m not that thin, yo!

When I woke up the next day, I made a call to my Express store to inquire as to whether or not they had my size/color in stock, and they did! They put my size 4 on hold, and I had 36 hours to pick it up. Perfect!

Wanted: Express Cotton High Waist Pencil Skirt

So I’m seeing average temperatures in the 20s lately. It is what it is. I live in the midwest.

My favorite clothing stores are cruelly rolling out their spring lines, regardless of locale. I tried not to look, and was successful for a while, but they’re also snail-mailing and emailing me with promos. Today, I caved and took a look at Express. I’ve already fallen in love with one particular item.

Do want!

Do want!

This is a cotton high-waist pencil skirt that retails for $59.95. I’m a big pencil skirt fan and have several; including 2 from Express. I like that these appear to be light-weight cotton and come in oh-so-fun colors! My current pencil skirts are black or gray; which are staples of my wardrobe. My friends always make fun of me for all the black/white in my wardrobe. I’ve made an effort to branch out and have added quite a few color pieces to my closet in the past 6 months. They’d be proud!

Looking ahead to spring, I am definitely drawn to bright colors such as green, blue, pink, and yellow. For this particular skirt, I want green first, and then the pink, as shown in the picture above. Express hasn’t sent me any coupon codes lately, but I know where to find them online ;). This time next month I may have my beloved skirt!

ETA: I got it!
