Imagine, dear reader, my surprise when this Banana Republic ad showed up in my mail.
(Now I know you're curious. Why? Is it because she is a broke-a$$ school teacher who can't afford Banana Republic? Is it because she can't really carry off their long, lean styles? Does it have something to do with her long-time crush on Tim Gunn?)
It's the fact that the model is wearing A JEANS SKIRT!!!!!

Is this advertisement from Banana Republic a tease? (They don't have any jeans skirts for sale on their site, but maybe they're planning a HUGE launch. One never knows when it comes to fashion, does one?) According to the internet, folks like The Huffington Post and Popsugar have been giving us advice on how to wear a denim skirt of a little over a year now. Apparently, jeans skirts have BEEN back and they forgot to tell me.
Not sure I'll buy one this time around, as I don't wear anything that doesn't completely cover my legs (veins, you know) and I'm not sure how well I could carry off a denim skirt at this point in my life. Maybe if I wait another 30 years and they come back into style again?
