for many years this was my only fancy skirt. i would wear it to my exams during university, out to formal social events and such. it was my go to item whenever i had to dress up. i know someone is probably smiling right now as she reads and sees this (you know who you are). i've had it since the end of high school and even though i barely wear it now - the last time it saw the light of day was at wedding ceremony two years ago - i decided to give it one more chance to see the world. you see, i still love it, the fabric is so light and breezy, it's black and white, one of my favorite color combos, and it has polka dots, so it's deemed to be a favorite but to be honest it got so much wear during those years that i became bored with it. i'm sure you've all been through something similar with certain items. instead of the fanciness it was associated with in the past, i decided to do a different take on it. i wanted to make it more casual and a bit retro by wearing it as a dress and matching it with a dotted scarf. i guess if you always challenge yourself to come up with new ways to wear an item will never get bored with it.
