It’s Kind of a Funny Story

There are moments where I’ll pick up a piece and it’ll trigger a particular memory. I can remember the reason why I bought it and why it’s one I remember. For this particular skirt, it is kind of a funny story.

A week before leaving New York, I managed to ask a guy out on a date. Quite out of my comfort zone, but hey I’m trying to step out of it. After much denial and many “omg’s”, it finally sank in that well I DID THAT. I asked a boy out. The only issue with this afterward is that I had no clue what to wear. A day before the date, I walked into an Urban Outfitters in search for an identity. I searched through racks, looked at mannequins for outfit inspiration, but STILL not one thing resonated with me or whatever identity I was going for—till this day I still don’t know what I was looking for.

In the midst of giving up and figuring out what I could later conjure up from my hole in the wall closet, I decided to take a peek into the sale section just for curiosity and fun. Which leads me to the plaid skirt you see. I picked it up and to my surprise, it was only $10 with an extra 40% off.  Let’s just say this skirt ended up being one of the pieces I wore on that date; but of course, after many outfit changes and fights with myself later. But that’s a story for another day…
