Just in case you're not up on your fashion blog definitions, I'll tell you what a "closet orphan" is. It's an item of clothing in your closet that you don't wear often. You're welcome.
I have quite a few of these orphans. Today I chose two that I'm pretty sure I bought back in May of 2002. How do I know that, you ask? Well, it's because I bought this outfit for a special event:
I saw Harry Connick, Jr. in concert for the first time on June 1, 2002. I paid a whopping $34.25. Worth. Every. Penny. That man has talent like I've never seen!
Here's what I bought and wore to see Harry:
Every time I wear this outfit I get compliments on it. So *why* don't I wear it? Simple - I forget about it! I'm ditzy as they come, people - I'm just sayin'. And I have had it since 2002. I might pass it over usually for something newer. Must stop that.

I kind of wish I had a dressier top to wear with this skirt. I picked the tee because it matched so well. I'll have to keep my eye out for a cute sweater in one of the shades of pink in the skirt and see if I can't class it up a bit. Stay tuned and you just might see this skirt again. :-)
