Kelli's got a very thoughtful and important post on her blog about the decision for young ladies to go to college or not. I, on the other hand, am going to be silly and blog about a skirt -- a RED skirt. Stacy and Clinton are probably somewhere moaning over my choice of cheap and red, but here goes:
I usually don't wear bright red, but this skirt called my name from the racks of Wal-Mart clothing. Since it obviously didn't cost much and since it is made in the shape that is most flattering for my figure and since it called my name rather loudly, I succumbed to a bit of holiday madness and said what could be more feminine and festive than a RED skirt.
Usually, red wears me rather than me wearing it. However, since this RED is in the skirt I can pair it with a color that is more flattering to my skin.
I have a lovely friend who wears red as her signature color. I think she's actually considered not wearing so much red, but people so identify her with the color that they gift her with purses, scarves, lipsticks, etc., in her special red.
Pink is more my style, with green becoming a fast favorite, as well. But, once in a while, a woman just needs a RED skirt.
