Yesterday a $0.99 maxi skirt, today a $1 pencil skirt. Although both wonderful deals, I think the pencil skirt wins hands-down between the two in terms of style.  The pencil skirt is a classic you can’t go really wrong with. And for the price that I snagged this particular one at, you really can’t go wrong! What’s a timeless item you’ve recently purchased for a fab deal?
