My $20.00 Skirt

So yesterday I was running around the city, taking care of my errands, and I passed by a little boutique with some really cute dresses in the window.  I have passed by this boutique many times, but that particular day, I decided to stop in.  The dresses were gorgeous...they were Diane vn Furstenburg.  Need I say anymore?

The price tags on the dresses ranged from $265.00 and up.  Secretly, I was saying to myself, "Lauren, get out of here as quickly as you can.  These dresses are NOT in the budget right now, so don't even taunt yourself."

As I'm thinking of my exit strategy, the boutique manager and employee start going on and on about how much they love my skirt.  Now this skirt, is from the fashion house of Hennes and Mauritz, also known as H&M.  I saw this bright orange a-line number back in December and it really caught my eye.  I get so many compliments when I wear it, and because bright colors and colorblocking are on trend, my $20.00 orange skirt, got a lot of attention that day.

I got several compliments while on my jaunt around town and as I was standing at the crosswalk waiting for the cars to pass, I heard a "you look really nice."  I turn my head, and there's a handsome stranger in a suit who nods in admiration.  "Thank you!"
