Skirting the issue
Zut alors, I am behind again with my Web log! I have catching up to do. Tonight I will catch up. I have been slipshod with everything recently. I do not know what it is, I am like a six-year-old. It is all I can do to get dressed in the morning.
Honest, I keep thinking of kids trying to get out the door to get on the bus. That is me!
And speaking of your inner six-year-old, there is this skirt I bought last weekend at one of the garage sales I went to with my mom.
It is funny how you can fall in love with clothes! I remember being in kindergarten and wanting to wear the same skirt over and over. The nice thing is, now I am a grown-up and I can do that!
There is no one telling me not to!
So, this skirt. I paid $3 for it. It is Ann Taylor Loft. Knee length. Made in China. Light green and white print.
I came home from the garage sale and put it on. Then I went to my friend Gary's house that night wearing it.
We got home late and I put the skirt on the chair by the bed. Sunday morning I rolled out of bed and put the skirt on again and wore it to Mass.
That afternoon I wore that skirt to the William Grant Still concert at UB.
Today I am wearing it again! I just cannot help it.
It is a great feeling when you find something new -- well, new to you, anyway, in my case -- that you love. Once in California I went to Goodwill and found a skirt, a short yellow skirt, I loved. I still have it somewhere. I will wear it once I get a chance to go through my summer clothes. Which may be never, let us not be naive.
Anyway, this California skirt, I remember showing it off to Leonard and he told me I looked great in it and took me to dinner. Pennario was the greatest. He had that right, just the way he had it right with his Liszt.
New clothes are something special!
They are something to celebrate!
