I bought this skirt when I was a college freshman while searching every store in the mall for something that would turn heads at a party I was attending later that evening.
I'm not sure how, but throughout the years, this skirt has made it through every wardrobe overhaul and thrift store pile I've every created.
While changing in between photo shoots, I saw a glimmer from the skirt, which was stuffed in the corner of my closet. I put the skirt on and coordinated an outfit around the unappreciated garment.
Is the skirt trendy? No. Were people turning their heads as I posed in Grant Park? Yes.
Who am I kidding, I've never been the one to turn down clothes that aren't trendy. Pieces like this skirt make an outfit special, even if it isn't your season's best.
