Skirts, skirts, skirts. I’m always on the prowl for skirts. I’m five feet seven and a half inches tall, my legs are long, and skirts that fall below the knee on most girls fall above the knee for me. Most of the time I have to buy skirts a size larger so I can SAG them to fall below the knee. I also have to do this because I’ve got a smaller waist and my hips and behind don’t lie.
So, I initially saw this Mika Rose skirt here and while it’s on sale now, it wasn’t on sale when I first saw it. Then I was browsing the actual Mika Rose website and the skirt was out of stock (in-stock now black, cream, and coral)! I ended up finding the skirt on the Jen Clothing website and ended up purchasing it.
The skirt has a rear zipper, a stretchy waist, and a cotton lining. When I ordered the skirt I was expecting actual lace. This skirt is lace-like. I didn’t read the listing correctly because it definitely says crochet lace. That’s a mistake on my part. At any rate I like the skirt; it’s comfortable and fits well. I do wish that the hem was a little bit longer and that the lining was the same length of the skirt. Jen Clothing shipped the skirt at lightening speed, so that was awesome! I’ll definitely order from them again.

Wearing: J Crew Blouse (last worn here), Mika Rose skirt from Jen Clothing, Kate Spade Charm heels (purchased via Poshmark…I bought these shoes in the fuchsia like color for my wedding and I love the gold pair, too! I had a credit on Poshmark, so I ended up paying $30 for these shoes. Woo! There are cheaper and lower heeled versions by J. Renee here, here here, and here*.)

Have you heard of Poshmark? Poshmark is taking the online “yard sale” community by storm! I first heard of Poshmark in December 2011 when they first launched, but didn’t download the app or sign up until April of 2012.
Poshmark is a quick and painless way to list items from your closet and make some cash. Poshmark also makes it easy for sellers to share items across a variety of social media platforms (I’m still waiting for Poshmark to feature Instagram!); what a great way to attract new customers!
Let’s get down to real business! I’ve sold several things using Poshmark and after some thought I’ve decided to make Poshmark my one-stop-modest clothing shop! I often get emails, Facebook messages, and Instagram comments questioning if I’m selling things from my closet and I can finally respond with, “YES!”
The items listed in my Poshmark closet are either from my own closet or items that I purchased specifically to resale. The items posted are in new or nearly new condition. I’m listing all of my items for $25 (some less).
It can be very difficult to purchase clothing online, so I do my absolute best to describe all items in detail and provide as many photos as possible.
If you haven’t signed up for Poshmark, what are you waiting for? Join now using the code HPFAW to get a $5 shopping credit. The app supports iPhone now and according to their site an Android app is on the horizon. If you don’t own an iPhone and see something you like just send me an email!

Spring is en route to a neighborhood near you (or not if snow is still pelting your rooftop), so be sure to check out Sole Society for the latest and greatest (and cutest) in affordable footwear.
I’ve had my eyes on these flats for awhile and I think I might just bite the bullet and get them. I like the pointed toe, the t-strap, and the nice contrast the taupe lends to the vibrant citrine color. They’ll look great with a fun skirt or dress this spring or fall, no?
These flats are $49.95 and are still available in two colors.
Have you ever used Sole Society? I found out about Sole Society from my favorite shoe blogger early last year, and I’ve ordered one pair of shoes from them. They offer free shipping (both ways), classy, modern, and trendy shoes, and from what I’ve seen there are many pairs under $60.
Happy shoe hunting!

Downeast Basics has quickly become one of my favorite modest online clothing stores–and for good reason! They offer a variety of clothing items, their pricing is affordable, and the products are of good quality. I purchased two sequin skirts from them, a blouse, a scarf, some leggings, and a blouse last year and I loved each product.
Here are a few blouses that are currently on sale on their site and MoMoMod reads can save an additional 40% off clearance prices until Monday, January 21st. They do have skirts in their sale items, but from what I could see most of the skirts were 22 inches in length. The length of the skirts might not meet your hemline requirements, but be sure to check them out.
