When I go shopping, my goal is to find the most unusual or dramatic piece of clothing. I love the challenge of styling a particularly peculiar piece for everyday wear. It is just too bad that THERE IS NOTHING TO DO IN TUSCALOOSA THAT CALLS FOR A FULL LENGTH SEQUIN SKIRT. So here's to all of the clothes I passed with a heavy heart and instead opted for more "functional" pieces. sigh.
