Anyone interested?

Post by Freedomforall » Thu Jan 03, 2019 12:59 am

Good evening cafe patrons!

I have a Style and Co. skirt. I tried it on and figured out that I do not like pencil skirts. The size is a 12 petite. I do not want money for the skirt. I want to give it to anyone that would like to have it. If anyone is interrested let me know.

Hi DJ
That is a generous offer but alas, not for me.
However, a suggestion, Mods allowing?
Let it go to a promising newcomer who makes a case that he will make good use of it.
Any "distinguished" patrons need not apply.
Steve,

Style & Co is a trade name associated with Macys
Confirming it looks like a PENCIL denim skirt - the hem line does not have that open "A" line airiness -
and those small pockets - well lets not go back into a discussion about that !
Yes it is a SKIRT
Yes it is made of denim material
and YES you can wear it - it is a skirt after all and that is what this is all about !
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

A worthy offer to anyone who is interested....Well done Freedomforall......It is worth noting that men can buy skirts and then deciede
that they do not wish to wear them....wearing a chosen skirt is a very personal thing....
I personally have a preference for wearing a different skirt every day...and only wear one particular skirt once a week or once a month.

It is no wonder there are so many new skirts in charity shops which end up as land fill.....

Come on gentlemen, I am sure one of us will be greatfull for Freedom's generous offer

A line skirts are my desired style. I like flowy and long ones as well. I am still working out my exact syle with tops but these types are my favorite skirts.

Indeed... a very generous offer, but alas, pencil skirts aren't my bag.

Remind us roughly where you are. It will affect the size of the skirt and the cost of posting it.
Keep on skirting,

FFA,

Davey Crockett country, eh! Well, that sure is a long way from me. US size 12 would theoretically be OK for me, but alas I just don't do pencils. I like a but of A-line swing at the very least and preferably a pleat or two. Sorry.
I once had a 'swallowtail', which is a pencil but with a flare of pleats at the bottom rear which allowed the wearer (me) to actually walk in it, but it is long gone.

That would be an awesome goal for me to work towards. I’m trying to lose weight. I don’t see it as an A-line though!

Thank you for the photo of a swallow tail skirt, Tom ...That is a nice style of skirt for an older " Man in a Skirt "
I must admit I an getting older every day..........

I was recently wearing a straight tweed skirt with box pleats 4 inches high, hem just below the knee...........
no problems ,............ I did not even have the local dogs sniffing round me.....................Rod.........

Hi DJ
I reckon that you should now start an auction, bidding from $20 perhaps? Shipping costs to be met by the buyer.
You could also just donate it to a local goodwill store.
Have a look round and you might find a suitable replacement.
Consider it a swap in a good cause.
Steve.

Wouldn't it be handy if there was a website already set up for doing that?
Keep on skirting,
