Maxi skirts/dresses The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book

collage maxi skirts dresses

Isn’t this a lovely theme? Maxi skirts/dresses! And that coming from me says a lot. I never liked maxi skirts or dresses that much and never wore them until this last summer season. I received a gift card and thought: lets give it a try! And bought this fabulous skirt! And that was it, now I am loving maxi skirts/dresses!

Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge and myself started this series after we had hosted The Bad Buy Book for a year. Now we are ready for a new challenge! Every 15th of the month we show our Good Buy or Good-Bye item. And we want you to join!

What is The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book about?

It is a collage of outfits! You can choose yourself whether you want to show a Good Buy (which is an item you are really exited about) or a Good-Bye ( which is an item you are going to say good bye to). We will keep buying a Bad Buy from now and then, you know, it was so cheap, you were in a hurry and really wanted(needed) to buy something etc.

But of course we also have those purchases that can make us so very happy. A piece of clothing that you have had for years and that you also wear a lot. Or something you bought on a holiday, and every time you wear it you get that holiday feeling back. Every month you can choose which item you want to send in. A Good Buy or a Good-Bye. We will provide a theme for each month!

So let’s start with The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Maxi skirts/dresses!

First my dear blogging friend and co-host Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge

Tie Dye maxi skirt

At the beginning of the pandemic, I bought this tie dye maxi dress from some fly by night online retailer that no longer exists. The other two dresses I ordered from there were duds but this tee shirt dress has turned out to be one of my favorite dresses ever. Definitely a Good Buy!

Wool maxi skirt and blazer look.

I don’t often wear maxi skirts or dresses, but this brown wool skirt really fits my vintage/Dark Academia style, plus it has pockets! So it’s definitely a Good-Buy in my book.

Here is my Good Buy maxi. I’ve had this skirt for 8 years and it still looks great. And basic black is just so easy to style.

I bought this maxi for a possible plane outfit. I love dresses when traveling because they make it easier to go to the bathroom!!

I’m glad you pushed me to do this because I’m going to style a post about ways to make a maxi work for the winter. Thanks for the inspiration!!

Black and blue in one outfit

It is a bit of a nature-magnet when I wear it “in the wild” (aka outdoors), as it picks up sticks and leaves from the ground. Despite this, it’s one of my favourite black skirts (and I have many) due to the sheer Drama of swanning about in it. It’s most definitely a Good Buy!

I wore it for hosting my mom for lunch, both with my turquoise sweater (and slippers!) and with a Tool concert tee when I had a hot flash!

This maxi skirt was a good buy! It goes with so many things and I love the dark floral print and pretty pleats!

I love this dress. Can’t even begin to tell you how old it is.  I bought it at Banana Republic.  It has pockets hidden in that voluminous skirt.  It fits through thick and thin!  I feel like a goddess in it!

And here is my maxi skirt.

Definitely a Good-Bye! Why did I buy this one? I guess just to try a maxi skirt. Well it was pre loved and I already sold it on. I just wanted a maxi skirt and tought the colors would be nice. They are, but not on me.

December’s theme will be: Sparkles!

And now hop over to Shelbee’s blog to see what the other fashion bloggers are wearing!

    I think that colorful maxi is gorgeous on you Nancy. It’s so funny how we don’t like new things on us at first. That’s why I will keep something for awhile, because you just never know!!

    I could beat myself up for not participating. In fact, I was fully prepared to send in a photo but … life got in the way, I guess. Such a shame that maxi skirt is a goodbye for you. I think it’s gorgeous! xxx

    I had forgotten about maxi skirts for quite some time; they used to be my favorite mom outfit in the summer paired with scoop neck tees and flip flops. I bought 2 at the end of August and am determined to wear them again when the weather warms up.
