I bought this skirt ten years ago. This is its first wearing.
Ridiculous, right? But let me tell you, it took AGES to find a top that worked with that very specific orchid pink/dusty rose in the pattern*. Matching the cream was impossible, and a silver top would’ve looked odd. On me anyway. And THEN! Ages more to procure a pair of shoes that matched somehow. The skirt is so old fashioned looking that I didn’t want to go with a contrasting tone, and until these silver shoes came to hand, I just didn’t have anything that worked.
Oh eesh, I’m rambling.
Point being: I don’t subscribe to the, “If you haven’t worn it in a year, donate it,” philosophy. I loved this skirt when I nabbed it on clearance, had it tailored at enormous cost due to the spiral construction, and knew it would someday find its mates. And so it has.
*This shell also magically matches three other skirts, and is pretty much the only thing I own that does. When it dies, I will be bereft.
