Life Candy Friday: Twirly Skirts

I love my twirly skirt. When I put it on I feel youthful and light. Do you have a twirly skirt? Was there a twirly skirt in your past?

I remember my sister's poodle skirt. It was nothing more than a black felt disk with a hole in the middle for the waist and a white poodle applique, complete with pink collar and leash. Boy could my sister twirl in that skirt!

My mom made a kilt for me when I was in high school. Kilts are classic twirly skirts. I wore that skirt all the way through grad school.

All cultures, it seems, have their version of the twirly skirt. Why? Because they make the biggest impact on the dance floor. And dancing is an international language everyone speaks!

Flamenco dancers, Polish dancers, Irish step dancers, cheerleaders, post war bebop flounces, and yes, kilts! Yeah, even guys like twirly skirts. They are fun, and they make you feel like you're flying.

If you have a twirly skirt, put it on (along with your prettiest underwear) and pirouette the day away!

    I was just talking about twirly skirts earlier this week while watching Dancing with the Stars. The costumes those women wear have some awesome twirly skirts! I really need to find one. I LOVE twirly skirts. They just make me happy. :)

    I have had numerous twirly skirts in my lifetime- well thus far at least. the best twirly skirt I ever had though was actually an old twirly dress that my mother let me wear to my first school dance. It was a simple black STRAPLESS dress, and it made me feel like such a woman. Heck, it made me feel like Audrey Hepburn.
    The part that made it worth while were not the compliments I got from both my friends and that same old group of popular kids but the sense of self confidence it gave me. I felt like I could do anything in that dress! But alas the clock struck ten the dance ended and I had to take it off. It’s a moment that I will never forget though.

    *I love your writing style. It’s very enjoyable because your voice comes across so clearly.

  • Dear Meg,
    Thank you for your comment. It sounds like you had a magical evening in your twirly dress. That’s a memory to treasure. And thanks for the compliment. You are very kind.
