Last week, someone suggested that I try to challenge myself by using the pieces in my closet that I haven't pulled out. They had a point. I LOVE the pieces I wear as evidenced over and over. But I also love the pieces I don't wear. I just feel less comfortable using them for whatever reason.
Today I pulled out a skirt I've had for many years. I haggled with my mom for this one. We were buying a few nice outfits for high school graduation and she was not a believer in this skirt. I had to have it. It had gold sequins, trim, and so much character. I wore it at least once a week for the months following. Since then, I've pulled it out of the closet a handful of times. I love it, but it's hard to match and the cotton-y layers stick to each other. (Super annoying!)
So, here goes.
I may have a Starbucks problem... In my defense, they were offering free treats.
The skirt has some pretty awesome detail. There are wooden beads, sequins, AND ruffles. Amazing!
All in all, I regret not wearing this skirt more. I received compliments all through the day. I loved how full and fun it was. And with the proper precautions, cotton sticking together wasn't an issue.
Possibly a good risk to take...
Also, for those who are interested, Starbucks is offering a free sample of their new goodies from 2-5 tomorrow, March 11th. So far, I've tried the birthday cake pop (delicious!), the red velvet whoopie pie (meh), and the salted caramel square (uber rich).
Worth looking into.
