Ten Years of Dots

Polka.  Dots.  A certain little polka dot skirt from The Limited to be exact.  A skirt I've been rocking for the last ten years.  Ten.  Count 'em.

Sure she's a little big on me right now, but she still looks cute belted.  She's a classic.  A wardrobe staple.  This little lady's been mistaken for PRADA for crying out loud!  (True. Story.)   After all we've been through together,  I don't think I could ever let her go.  You can't Goodwill memories people!  This little skirt and I are friends for life.

Here are some highlights of our journey together.

2003 - Opia NYC -  Jeree's 21st Birthday Bash:

With the Birthday Girl
Limited halter and skirt, Coach bag (my first!), my favorite white gold hoops,
Movado watch (another item I still wear and love).
 Charles David shoes (not pictured).
Love that after all this time I can still call these fabulous people my friends.
When you've been friends with someone for over 25 years you can get away with censoring an accidental boob shot.
Sure, she's going to want to kill me, but she can't get rid of me now.
Like the polka dot skirt, we have too much history.
2006 - Central Park - Stevie Pops the Question

Yes, that's the exact moment he proposed.
We had just seen The Phantom of the Opera, had a carriage ride through the park, and were taking a walk.
He takes out a disposable camera and asks some poor girl sitting on a bench doing her homework to take our picture.
I go to pose, and before I know it, he's on his knee, said girl is gasping and clicking away, and I'm saying "YES!"
Good.  Stuff.
2013 - Upstate New York - Easter Sunday Best

The Skinny on my Outfit:
Francesca's earrings, Flea Market Girl necklace, H&M top and sweater, Limited skirt,
anthropologie belt, Hue tights, Target wedges
I need to buy some clothes that fit STAT.

What's one item in your closet that you will never get rid of?

Have a great weekend kiddos,

  1. What an awesome history you have with you skirt! I have several items that I've been wearing for many years now that I don't think I could ever bear to give away. You do make such good memories with some of your clothes, it's true!
