Frog Necklace and a Summer Skirt
I love this old Anthropologie Vanessa Virginia skirt so much, not only for the print but also the comfort. The cotton is so light weight yet it does not seem fragile. I have thought about having this copied by a seamstress but finding this exact fabric may prove difficult.
I am a fan of Betsey Johnson costume jewelry and I was lucky to find this frog necklace at Macys on a great sale a couple of years ago. I only have two pieces so far and regret not buying the vegetable style necklace while at Macys that same year. It was on sale but I got greedy and wanted it on more of a sale. I had no idea that it would be so hard to find. The same thing happened with the J.Crew apple skirt. I thought it should have been marked down even further and waited too long. Ebay used to be the place to go when one missed out on an item but the prices have been too high. I never understand why sellers keep items on Ebay for the longest time yet never bother to lower the prices when they don't sell. Wouldn't they rather have some money instead of being stuck with merchandise that clearly isn't moving?
