I bought this Roberto Cavalli skirt several years ago on eBay and never wore it. I kept saying I was going to have it shortened - but never did. And I never could figure out what to wear with it, that didn't make it even more over-the-top than it already is.
|Brown denim, with a celestial print.|
|And a little mermaid-pleat|
|It has loveliest pale aqua-green and ivory-white nebulae, gold stars and script, gold hardware, and leather zipper pulls|
|The pattern makes me think of The Golden Compass, or Sting's The Soul Cages|
For the past several years, I have vacillated between selling it, and keeping it. I could not bring myself to sell it. I love the cut of the skirt, and I LOVE the print. Oh I do love me a celestial print!
I finally decided that it was ridiculous to keep this skirt, when I could sell it and use the money for something else. So a few weeks ago, I took pictures and wrote the listing for an eBay auction. I had it all done, and previewed the listing...
And I thought, "Nope. I'm going to get it shortened, and I am keeping it.... and I am going to wear it if it kills me!"
I took it to my seamstress last week and asked her to shorten it, and she refused. She thought I should leave it as-is, so I did.
Yesterday, finally, I wore this skirt. My happiness factor - like the pattern on the skirt - was out of this world!
|I am SO glad I didn't shorten it!|
I now have a few Cavalli pieces in my wardrobe (all hunted down relentlessly on eBay), and they are all like this - sexy, quirky, imaginative, over-the-top. This is definitely a brand I can get behind!
