Why is it when I wear a skirt I feel, just a little more dressed up...or a little more ladylike even?
Even if the skirt is a five year old, black jersey skirt?
One that is more comfy than my "good jeans"
And has me twirling about and feeling lighter on my feet.
I salvaged this skirt from the very very top of my cupboard as I was still doing some major shedding, sorting, cleaning and re-arranging. I tried it back on, and remembered how comfy she was.
Well, I think I've worn this skirt about three times this week. It's uneven, and un-hemmed (it came like that - luckily i can fix hems!) and it has exposed seams - to some it seems, well, unfinished. But I love it.
I laughed when I went to visit our host - she has a similar little skirt story too. I love the way accessories can add a bit fancy too. I made this little scarf years ago from some satin I loved at Lincraft. I only bought 20cm of it, and whipped up a small scarf. I wear it around my head or neck.
So this skirt, is getting a new lease of life and heading back into the territory that is my wardrobe.
Have you saved an item of clothing you forgot you had or were planning on ditching?? Sometimes having a break from a piece of clothing does make the heart grow fonder (hahah!)
