I was excited about his skirt when I bought it.
It fit! It was comfortable! It had POCKETS!
(The pockets are the best part. Love em.)
I wore it once and noticed a funny smell. A funny chemical smell.
It's not just me that noticed it. My mom and Justin could smell it too. I'm thinking this is my problem:
It was made in China. (I'm not saying all clothes made in China smell.) Obviously it's sprayed with something horrible. Maybe something about the dark denim wash? As I was Googling for answers that seemed to be a problem for many people.
I have washed it twice, soaked it in vinegar, baking soda, and lemon juice. When it gets hot the smell gets stronger. The smell as I was ironing it nearly knocked me over.
I'm clothes-poor and to finally find a skirt that fits and looks cute but I can't wear it is torture.
I'll keep trying to wash it, etc. but the smell is so strong and chemical-y, I don't think it's ever going to go away. Besides, I don't really think that having it next to my skin is a good idea.
Let me know if you can sew - I'll send you my measurements. I want a skirt just like this without the smell!
(No, I never noticed it in the store. While shopping yesterday, you better believe I was smelled everything that I bought!)
First of all, Happy Birthday to my mom and aunt today. Hope you ladies have a great day!
Second, I have a crazy long list of things to get done before the weekend hits. I don't think there's enough hours in the day, but we'll see.
Here's to getting to it! Happy Wednesday!
