Old skirt-New me

Beauty brunette wearing fashionable dress by Camelia Miron Skiba

The other day I walked into my closet and as always I struggled to find what to wear. Who is with me? Mind you I’ve two closets but that doesn’t necessarily means it’s easy. One thing I know for sure: the more clothes I have the more I struggle to find what to wear. Then I get mad: how is it possible not to know what to wear? It’s not rocket science is it???

As I glanced over the bottom and top rows I still didn’t know what to pick, but my eyes fell on a pencil navy blue skirt with a vest that I bought when I was living in Germany back in . . . 1997. 17 year later and I still like this 2-piece outfit. Made of polyester, nothing fancy and yet, after all these years and places I lived in, for some reason this skirt followed me all over the world until I settled in the US in 2003.

Why this skirt? Not sure. But it kind of makes me wonder what is it about it that makes it a keeper? There are no exceptional memories associated with it, no emotions or events and yet, here it is, hanging in my closet, waiting for me to wear it.

There were times I didn’t fit in it anymore. Then I used it as a challenge to drop a few pounds, telling myself all I need to do is to fit back in it and I’ll be happy with my weight. Perhaps that’s what this skirt represents for me: my balance for a perfect weight. Perfect weight=being happy with myself=confidence

Did I just discover the secret to womanhood???

About Camelia Miron Skiba

I WRITE. I LIVE. I LOVE. I DREAM. I WRITE. I’m Chris’ wife, Patrick’s mom and Bella’s owner. During the day, I’m the assistant to the Director in SESE at Arizona State University, and romance’s slave at night. My debut novel "HIDDEN HEART" came out in March 2011. Since then I published four more books and a short novella. I moved to the U.S in 2003, following my heart and the man who stole it. I love comedies, historical dramas and happily-ever-after stories. Each year I participate in one big event that requires me to train. My biggest sportive accomplishment was the 3-day 60 miles Susan Komen Walk. Annually I pick a color I decree my favorite (this year is salmon). I refused to text until 2010, always preferring to hear voices rather than sending emotionless messages. Politic bores me to death and I have no tolerance for arrogance.
