The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
What silken mysteries lie squished between
mightier thicker clothes in the back of the closet.
I forgot about this wrap skirt my husband gifted me with during a 2004 trip to Charleston. I rarely wore it, because I’m so short and it’s so long. I couldn’t figure out how to style it. I might have worn it to the theater a couple of times in the last six years. But with inspiration from my fave style bloggers, I’m finding my own style, and wearing outfits I wouldn’t have dreamed of wearing before – to work.
The comfortable Nine West wedges with the 3 1/2 inch heels also helped make this long skirt happen.

There was a stiff breeze outside, but it wouldn’t cooperate to show you how gauzy and soft the fabric of the skirt is, like a chiffon scarf. The fabric flows like water.

Is there anything lurking in your closet that you bought – but haven’t figured out how to wear yet?
ADDENDUM: Heh. I had this skirt on backwards all day. There’s a gold border that’s supposed to run around the front. Pro’bly explains why it’s longer in the front, too…I clearly need help getting dressed. Even if you don’t have a blog, you should try taking outfit pics. They can be VERY enlightening.
