When it comes to closet organization, the golden rule is if you haven’t worn it in a year, toss it. The last time I cleaned out my closet, I tossed a lot of things I hadn’t worn in a year (or more) and promptly regretted it. But one thing that I couldn’t let go of was this tomato red skirt. It didn’t fit—it was too small and every time I tried it on, it was so tight in the waist that it felt like it was going to cut my body in half—but I couldn’t bring myself to get rid of it. So it sat in my closet—until today. I lost weight when I got sick recently (and expect to gain it back quickly) so I decided to wear this skirt before I put the pounds back on. I think the color looks great with turquoise so I accessorized with a turquoise snakeskin belt, turquoise feather earrings and a necklace. Oh, and a scar that actually makes me feel like a bit of a badass. Or maybe a bit of a klutz.
