For my inspired outfit, I had to think long and hard about finding just the right pieces to pair with such a statement polish. In the end, I picked an old piece that recently underwent a major alteration and, hopefully, will now get a new lease on life. It all started in Paris; on one of my first shopping trips to H&M – long before it became a household name on this side of the Atlantic – I fell in love with a beautiful silk dress. It was yellow (definitely not my colour) and had a halter neckline (definitely not my style), but I adored its gorgeous floral pattern. At the time, I was about two sizes smaller than I am now – in fact, smaller than I was ever before or have been since. The dress fit me comfortably for about 6 months … and has been sitting in the back of my closet ever since. This year, I finally gave up the hope that I was going to wear it again; but I couldn’t give it up entirely. It was that print that I just couldn’t let go. So, I asked my grandmother to turn it into a skirt. I think it turned out great!
