It is confession time, my style mavens. I was recently at one of my favorite shopping spots when I saw this skirt. Actually, if I am going to be completely honest, I passed this piece up several times over the weeks prior to this shopping excursion, and had been left feeling completely puzzled by its shape and shiny texture. Don’t get me wrong, I can appreciate a piece that has a bit of character to it. However, I just couldn’t decided whether I hated this skirt and the way it resembled a trash bag on the hanger, or if it was one of my favorite finds of the fall season. So, you can imagine my surprise and delight, when I finally tried it on and discovered that its slouchy shape and high shine were the actual reasons that I loved it.
Now, I know this would be the perfect time to insert the cliche about not judging a book by its cover. However, this is a fashion blog! So, I will simply say that one should never judge a skirt on its hanger. That seems much more appropriate.
