Run Around Week in Review

Our seventh POW (Piece of the Week) is the cabi Spring 2016 Run Around Skirt. With this sexy, elegant, comfortable, flattering, versatile, go-anywhere skirt, we learned to dress like a boardroom goddess; a comfortable superhero; a bright, comfortable professional; a simply elegant patron of the arts; the sexiest woman in the room; and a lady off to the races! We also learned to play with muted contrasts, prints, color, all black, hats and more. The Run Around Skirt can do it all!  

Without further ado, let’s review this Run Around week! Which is your favorite?
