Nestled between wool skirts and hidden behind closed closet doors hangs my new obsession: a sequined, bubble skirt.
For the past few years, I have held off from purchasing a sequined skirt because I could never find one that was just right. Every skirt that I have come across has been either too long, too up-and-down, or too cheaply made. I was shopping online the other week when this particular skirt caught my eye. I visited Gap’s website intending to buy pants for my brother, but my attention was immediately redirected.
I clicked on the advertisement while praying that it was in stock and in my size. Then I realized that I was shopping in the children’s section. Noooooo! Unwilling to accept the facts, I couldn’t stop myself from checking the availability anyway. Similar to when I buy an article of clothing in a much larger size than usual (because it is the only one), I figured what the hell? I had to have it.
So, I bought the little girls’ skirt and nearly died when it actually fit! The best part of all is that I got it for under $40. I tried to find it online, but it seems like the skirt is now completely sold out. Luckily, Melina of .but I like it, also thinks that it is totally acceptable to wear children’s clothing.
It looks adorable on her; I can’t wait to wear mine both dressed-up and dressed-down.
[As an adult], have you ever bought anything from the children’s section?
Do you own a sequined skirt? What is your favorite way to wear it?
