    I have always loved maxi dresses and skirts, they are my go to. I had a well loved denim maxi skirt that I gave away a few years ago because it was too big. I’ve never been able to find another one to replace it. I’m glad to have found your company online and that you have so many options! I’ve never really liked midi length skirts but I purchased your Jordan skirt in Navy and loved it so much, I now have it in black and grey as well!

    My closet has maxi dresses and maxi skirts. I love them both. I purchased my first midi from Inherit and love it. I’m so thankful for this wonderful company and all that work for it.❤️
