I was surprised to read the amount of responses and suggestions last week when I asked the question, “How do you organized your wardrobe?” (click here to read post) It’s a simple thing we do every day – getting dress – yet it obviously takes so much thought, planning, and not to mention, money. Because of your interest, I decided to continue the topic and ask another just as important question. Do you have a favorite piece in your wardrobe? If so, what is it? Is it a skirt, a blouse, or a pair of pants? Does it make an appearance at least once a week or is it a piece to only cherish and ogle at? Was it bought or acquired? Tell me its story…
I have such a piece in my wardrobe. We met about a year ago. I was scarfing down a sandwich while perusing the Internet during my pseudo-lunch break when I first saw her. Infatuation has stopped me in my tracks twice in my life and this was the second (who caused the first? I’m not telling). Most girls fall in love with a man but I fell in love with a hot pink skirt.
We’ve had a great relationship since we first met. Made of the loveliest and lightest chiffon, she twirls, sways, and swooshes with me wherever I go. I’ve worn her with white tees, striped tees, button down blouses, chambray blouses, jeans jackets, and herringbone jackets. I’ve paired her with flats, sandals, and heels as well as pearls, stones, and diamonds. She’s taken me to laid back dinners (she never pays), Saturday afternoon walks, and formal occasions (click here to see how I wore her on Christmas). We have yet to have a fight and she hasnt cheated on me yet. I hope our relationship continues as seamlessly as it has for the many years to come.
So I ask again, do you have a favorite piece in your wardrobe? If so, what is it?
P.S. How to draft a block pattern will be back next week with the sleeve draft. I was busy working on a guest post last week and on Sunday, the day I planned to start writing the sleeve draft post, all I wanted to do was open the windows (it was in the 70s here in Philly) and waste the day away sewing my dress. Ten hours later, I did such that, waste the glorious day away with my sewing machine and To Catch a Thief (Cary Grant and Grace Kelly…. amazing).
