A few weeks ago I was having an outfit crisis and asked my best friend if I could borrow a black maxi skirt. Needless to say, I haven't returned it.

Normally, I swear, I'm really good about returning things, but she told me she bought this skirt in two different sizes, and prefers the other one... so I'm thinking I might just borrow this forever.

"borrow this forever"--I love it. Well, she does have two, so I think you should go for it (and maybe buy her a drink or something)! I love your paisley top--I just bought a paisley printed shirt myself, I love that pattern right now!

Woohoo, yay for stealing skirts ;)
(and yea, stinks that it's not in focus, but I still like it anyway, ha ha...)

Lyddie, I love the look. I have two black maxi skirts and I really need to incorporate them into my wardrobe more. One is very full and the other is body skimming and really sexy. I just can't seem to figure out how to wear them.
You have nailed the look...yeah, that skirt should be yours!

What a nice friend! I like the look, especially the shoes!

I like that term--"borrowing forever." It's so clever and innocent.

But really, that skirt is fabulous on you, and a black maxi skirt (or any maxi skirt really) seems like a staple that so many people have that I probably need.

Can I say that I really like that top, too? It looks so nice with all your gold accessories, oh la la.

I seriously love maxis! Aren't they so incredibly comfortable? Well, your BFF should know that it looks lovely on you! :)Hope your week is going well!

Courtney Erin said...

Yeah, I think I would hang onto that if I were you...it looks great and the fit is fantastic. On a side note, I love your sandals.

I have a black maxi dress which I have worn this week. I will betaking it away with me this weekend too.
If you can - keep it!

Alex Elizabeth said...

I seem to have only summer maxis... I think a black one would be nice, and some other darker colors for fall. I've recently realized that they're such great transitional pieces when you don't want to wear tights!

Alissa said...

Ok, that's it. I have to wear my winter maxi dress more this year!

Amber said...

"borrow it forever" you are brilliant.

TaraMixandMatch said...

I can see why you want to keep it! It looks great on you and would be so versatile!

silvergirl said...

i am pretty sure my friends and i borrowed a few items from each forever in college.
love that you paired a navy bag with the black skirt

Natasha Fatah said...

Meh, that's what best friends are for. She'll get it back, when she gets it back. ;)

Lorena said...

Maybe you can buy it from her ?
I like it, and the sandals are heaven sent.

Shey said...

I love your sandals? Are those the ones you got in your trip to...I forgot where, France? Italy? they are nice. =)

Shabby, Chic, & Cheap said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE those sandals!! My BFF has 'borrowed' quite a few things from me and has yet to return them...we're talking 7th grade here!

Terri said...

It's really flattering. I hope she does let you keep it forever.

Mimi said...

Isn't having fashionable friends the best? Great skirt!

jess said...

You should hang on to that skirt as long as you can. It looks great.

Inez said...

I don't mind a good friend borrowing forever something I have two of. Cute sandals.

Jill said...

Cute sandals. And if you didn't already own a black maxi I'm thinking now you do...:)
