It's a great feeling when you find a piece that you've wanted for months. Inspired by this skirt from Oscar de la Renta's 2013 collection, last spring I went on a hunt for pink silk skirt to add to my spring wardrobe rotation. My search online and in stores didn't produce an affordable version that I liked. Nevertheless, a chance trip to a sample sale in L.A. months later did. As the saying goes, sometimes you find what you want when you're not looking.
Life can be like that sometimes. You go about your day doing mundanely only to discover the right opportunity, person or thing that you've been looking for. It has happened to me too many times to count. It helps me to keep an open mind, because the things that you least expect can and often do lead to beautiful beginnings.
