I received numerous emails regarding the little Proenza Schouler skirt I wore here. I enjoy wearing pieces that have a story. It makes a great piece all the more special. The other day I was flipping through an old issue of Vogue when I came across the editorial version of the skirt on Maria Sharapova. All the more funny since, I happened to be wearing my skirt that day. It's always nice to find yourself reacquainted with a familiar photograph.
It's not the red and navy version from the runway that went into production, but it gives you a sense of how many iterations of a piece there are. This version has the little square embellishments sewn all around the skirt and contrasting vertical ribbons running down the front. I never tire of looking at a piece that I own with fresh eyes. Most interesting are the changes that are made to pieces and items that never make it into production. It's infallible that each season I fall in love with an item that is never produced even though it appears in fashion magazines. Such is life, but it certainly makes the one of a kind pieces something to treasure.
