Have I ever told you the story about the time my wrap skirt unwrapped and fell to the floor?

No? I believe as you probably would remember that one. I was 7 or 8 years old so feel a bit of sympathy for me. Here goes the story: My maternal grandmother was a great seamstress and spent many hours of her life stitching clothes for my sister and I. I was craving a trendy wrap skirt so she made for me.

I clearly recall the first day I proudly wore it as I also wore a pair of nylons which made me feel like a real grown-up. At the end of the day of school, I was walking my younger sister and step-brother down the hallway to head for the walk home and I suddenly felt something fall to my feet. I stopped, looked down at my feet and stood there in disbelief.

The item around my feet was my skirt. I stood there for what felt like hours looking at this skirt, afraid to look at what others saw: me standing in nylons and shoes with my skirt at my feet. Embarrassing to say the least! I am sure it was merely seconds until I pulled the skirt up and the went to the girls room to re-wrap the skirt.

From that day forward, I despised my wrap skirt. Can you tell I am pouting?

Now I need some comfort, in the form of vinegary roasted potatoes.

This is an easy way to make your potatoes into a sassy side dish. And who doesn’t love sassy? unless we are talking teenagers.

Go on now, go giggle at someone else…..

aww that stinks! Once whne I was in 4th grade I tucked the back of my shirt into my tights and left the bathroom. Someone ran up behind me and grabbed it to fix it before I walked back into my class!!!

Wearing a skirt in Boston is risky biz. I always wear shorts or dark tights since it’s so windy. Lost count on the # of times my dresses and skirts have gone up.

potatoes look so good!

That is about as bad as the day I had my period on my skirt in 6th grade and a boy pointed it out to me.

Imagine it happening on stage in a musical in front of about 500 people– in a hoop skirt. It happened to me! Haha those potatoes would surely help matters, terrific comfort food. :)

Oh, thats so sad! I have never been a big fan of wrap skirts, but now because they fall off, but because it makes my hips look huge! Your potatoes look marvelous!!

Oh my Jo-Lynne!! I was able to avoid that fate once, all thanks to a hoodie wrapped around my waist.
