We strolled across the courtyard and into the store. With my to-go tea in my left hand, I began to rummage through the racks with my right. I found a mint condition, black, cropped leather jacket originally from Wilsons. It fit like a glove. I took my jacket over to the wrap desk to finalize my purchase, when the sales associate said, "Would you like to take advantage of our Buy One Get the Second 1/2 Off?" I went back to peruse the store once again when I spotted an adorable skirt in black. I carried it to the dressing room (passing my husband who sat comfortably in a chair outside the fitting room) and said, "I'm going to try this on real quick." He looked up from his phone as a form of acknowledgement. I slipped the skirt on and squealed in delight. It was so cute and flouncy. It made me want to dance! Out of the dressing room I came to show my husband. I twirled around and did a few side steps. Yep...I danced right in the middle of the store for anyone watching to see! My husband just smiled and said, "I guess that's coming home too?" I said, "With it being 1/2 off, it's only $9.00." He said nothing more. Went to the cash register and finalized the deal.
On this day, I can hear The Jacksons singing Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground) in my head. The cut and design of my new skirt, with the tiered elastic bands, encourages me to move. Standing on top of the music notes, I sway and flip my skirt to my own musical serenade. I'm having fun! (Tweet this) Having fun in fashion is of the utmost importance. You should feel like strutting your stuff in your clothing!
ps. I actually did dance with the Jackson family at the premier party for the Jackson Family Dynasty that my husband was the sound engineer for. Here are some pictures of us with Jackie and Tito. I wanted to get one of Marlon but he left early (sad face).
