It's Nothing Short Of Chic's birthday!! I can't believe it! I feel so happy, so fortunate, and so overwhelmed with gratitude. Thank you, my readers, followers, and supporters, for keeping me going – I love you! Today is the second anniversary of the launch of this blog and its first post!

Transition from day to night with a chic, unique skirt.

The idea for this post came when Astrid F., the hilarious, unpredictable, Beatles-loving, horse-back-riding actress who also happens to be my best friend and cousin, told me about this skirt she had sitting in the back of her closet, unworn and shunned. "It was for a Hallowe'en costume," she told me, referencing the pirate outfit she sported last year. "I've never worn it since." So I decided to help her out a little and style it two ways – day and night – for her (even though she didn't ask for, and probably didn't want, my advice). Believe it or not, this is an item several of my friends own (and never wear), so hopefully, this helps several people.
