Last Christmas, my best friend was kind enough to gift me with a certificate for ModCloth. I was definitely excited about that gift (in my quiet, internal way)! However, as you have probably figured out by now, I didn't spend it right away. I looked at the website now and then, but nothing in the appropriate price range really struck me...that is, until a month or so ago.
As you have probably also figured out, I have a fondness for nautical things that occasionally manifests itself here. Until recently, I also had a desire to get a full skirt of a neutral color and appropriate length. Lo and behold, this spring Modcloth is offering the Vivacious Venture skirt, which is sailor-style, neutrally colored, and knee-length. Finally, I was ready to use my gift certificate.
For my cute new skirt's first outing I paired it with a brown and pink striped sweater that I bought probably a couple of months ago. With my new brown flats on (it was high time to replace the others!) the colors tied in well together. A simple gold cross necklace and a braided updo were all I needed to complete the outfit.
My only complaint about the new skirt is that the size small ended up being a little bigger in the waist than I was hoping. My main fear was that it would be too tight, it's high-waisted, so at least my fears were allayed.

Have you ever bought anything from ModCloth?
Do you spend gift cards right away or let them sit in your room/wallet/purse for a long time?
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
