This is one of my purchases from yesterday. I washed it last night just so I could wear it today. In Spanish, we call this estrenando - I believe the fashion blog term is "debuting". The difference is that you'd actually use "estrenar" in a normal conversation, whereas "debut" sounds a little weird when you're talking about clothes.
And if you're Puerto Rican, when you're estrenando, someone might tease you and say something like, "¡Qué fiebre!" which basically means that you're so stinkin' excited about your new clothes that you don't even have the decency to wait a couple days before trotting them out.
So, yes, there's a little fiebre going on here, but y'all just don't know how long I've been searching for a leopard print skirt that was in my size and not very expensive. I thought about wearing this skirt with teal or green or red, but when I tried it on yesterday, I was wearing a black cami, and I loved the simplicity of the look. It let the skirt take center stage, so I stuck to it. Besides, I get to keep this forever - I can wear as many things as I want with it at later dates.
Oh, and this sassy little skirt has pockets. Pockets! And leopard! I might move in, y'all. You can just forward my mail to my leopard print skirt.
