I bought this skirt a while ago at Milli's. Milli's is pretty much a fashion mecca in Hamilton, let me rephrase, THE fashion mecca. Imagine Moschino and Sonia Rykiel in Hamilton... I can't afford to shop there, it's for the upper echelon of society and since I am (proudly) a super-clearance, bottom-feeder kind of shopper, I usually just leave little nose prints on their amazing window displays. But they had a tent sale this summer and I figured I should go. I'm glad I did, I found this amazing skirt for $50, down from $1500. The best part is that Milli herself (she's a legend...) helped me. I have to say, their service is impeccable. My $50 purchase is a tiny drop in their revenue but yet, they treated me like I was their best customer.
I was a little afraid to wear it for my brother's wedding in Holland. The Dutch tend to stray on the side of casual and I didn't want to be overdressed. Usually Overdressed is my middle name (my parents thought it was a little awkward as a first name, hence it's the middle...) but I was going to see lots of people I hadn't seen in a while and I wanted to make a good impression. But I love sequins and this is me and if having glitter from my navel to past my toes makes me a bad person, so be it.
Besides, I was saving this skirt for a special occasion, and I can't think of a more special occasion then my brother marrying his lovely bride. Honestly, it was such a lovely day! Congrats K & E! We love you! Visit often!
