There’s a great story behind this skirt. In 2010 when I was still living in Connecticut my helpmeet and I ventured home to Edmonton for a visit and I bought this adorable leopard print skirt with pockets at a local Joe Fresh. The only problem was that they didn’t have my size in the store but I was so smitten with the skirt that I opted to get a size down and just deal with it. Which I did, for over a year in fact. But my closet kept growing and eventually I needed to weed some things out and so this skirt was donated to Goodwill. Fast forward to 2012. I go into the Edmonton thrift paradise known as Value Village and find my leopard print skirt again – this time in my size and for the grand price of $5. Hello beautiful and welcome home! Anyways, I busted it out for a pizza and wine dinner at Famoso on Whyte Avenue last week. I am so happy that we’re reunited.
