Not Your Average Black Pencil Skirt

Mirror mirror on the wall…

You’re the prettiest of them all. And if they disagree one night. We’ll send the baddies out to fight.

I don't know what it is about the Olympia Pencil Paperbag Skirt that just brings out the confidence!

Story time- One night, I wore the Olympia Skirt to an after party event and I felt so good! Sidenote, I design clothes for the every day woman..and I am my demo. When women reach out to me raving about how much they love their SBS piece, that just adds fuel to my fire! There’s nothing like receiving positive feedback about your greatest asset yet… your mind :)

I digress. So, I’m at the party.. having a great time, taking pics and getting a lot of compliments from men and women. A women randomly walks up to me and is like, “Omg, I LOVE that skirt! Where did you find it!?” Feeling very flattered I replied, “I made it.” She looked at me like she had found her long lost sister. She proceeds to tell me about what she does and how there could be a partnership opportunity between the two of us. Another sidenote - this is why I’m very adamant about wearing the clothes I design. To me, there’s nothing worse than someone complimenting me on an outfit that I didn’t create…but saying I’m a “designer”. The proof is in the pudding!

Long story short, the partnership opportunity between her and I did not work out, but I’ll never forget the first time I was ever publicly approached about a piece I’d designed. I believe that when you look good, you feel good, and that night I felt like a million bucks!
