One of the most irritating feelings is when you bring something home that you absolutely loved in the store, just to see that nothing in your collection of clothes compliments it well. Its out of left field for the what you’ve been harboring in the closet and theres so little time to be sourcing the stores or thrifts shops to find specific items. I’ve had this battle with this particular skirt and for some time. I loved the linen material with vertical gold/ orange metallic strips and the coarse like shape that it created once I put it on. There were many time that I had given up on this skirt. I’ve had it collecting dust, tried giving it away to family members, and I even thought of donating it. But somehow it would resurface or manage to get back to me, like some sort of lost child, reminding me like “hey, I’m cute, I’m here, LOVE ME! you got me for a reason…”
Well, it finally happened, the nourishment come like water to a drying flower. The beautiful thing is, it kind of happened by accident. I was observing the pretty detailed packaging design that the Versace perfume came in, which smells like a sweet vanilla scent, that I received for my birthday. After a while, I became a bit inspired by it. The metallic strips of the skirt expressed the metallic design, while wrapping my belt expressed the icon Versace medusa symbol.
