If You Love Something Let It Go….

You’ve all heard the saying: “If you love something, let it go.  If it comes back to you, its yours forever.  If it doesn’t, then it was never meant to be.”  Well, although it is highly unlikely that “Unknown” was referring to a sequin embellished midi-skirt, it is this very quote that best describes my love affair with the skirt you see below.

Flashback about 15 years.

On a habitual Marshalls shopping trip with my mother, I instantaneously fell in love with the perfectly embellished, gold sequin beauty you see below. I convinced my mother that I absolutely NEEDED this skirt to further my existence and proceeded to list each and every upcoming event, Quinceañera, school dance and holiday I could potentially wear this skirt to; and I did.  I wore this skirt several times before deciding to do with it what I normally do with clothing I have convinced myself I will not wear again; give it to my mother to send to Nicaragua.

Well, my mother, being the borderline hoarder that she is, decided NOT to send this skirt to Nicaragua and kept it around for the day that (in my mother’s words) I “learned to appreciate choice pieces.”  About a month ago, more than 12 years later, my mother resurfaced this enchanting midi skirt and I fell in love all over again. With rich embellishments and midi-skirts being two of 2014’s hottest trends, I have to say this skirt’s feature on Sun Fun Fashion was simply meant to be.

This skirt really is enchanting.  I plan to keep it around quite possibly forever.  I consider it the first piece of my “Vintage Marshalls” Collection!

Thanks for your time! Have a wonderful day!
