the moral wardrobe: guest post by Jennifer

My sister enthusiastically volunteered to share a Moral Wardrobe guest post with you today! The Wells sisters look awesome in midi skirts.



I got this great skirt from a church thrift store a few days ago while in historic St. Augustine, Florida. I don’t wear long skirts very often, but I really like high waisted items and I was drawn to the colorful stripes. I paired it with a black tank and jean vest so that I wouldn’t overpower the outfit with pattern (I prefer simple looks). I then added accessories that brought out the colors in the skirt, such as my blue rethreaded wristband and antique red earrings.

P.S. you should really check out rethreaded if you get the chance. They are a great organization whose goal is to help women reestablish their place in society after coming out of the sex trade.

Ethical choices are bolded below:

  • Skirt – thrifted, $2
  • Sandals – thrifted, gift
  • Bracelet rethreaded
  • Ring – fair trade, gift
  • Earrings – antique store purchase, $3
  • Tank top – Target, $6
  • Vest- Ross, $7
  • Cat– animal shelter, priceless
Thanks for sharing, Jenny. I really like that skirt – and Tigger the cat.
