I loved this little piece when I opened the package that came from Anna in AZ!!

It was a slight spandexy mix but the best part was the attached black tank and black skirt.  I totally had shirts when I was a kid that either had a stitched in faux turtleneck or on a short sleeved piece, it looked like there was a long sleeved shirt underneath, but it was just faux long sleeves sewn to the ends… This totally fit the bill!
