A wardrobe malfunction leaves this LUXYMOM’s® cheeks flushed.
This is the real life story of Sabrina Shell, as told by LUXYMOM®.
Skirts. Delightful and feminine, these wardrobe staples are true weapons of fashion destruction if utilized properly. A proper figure-hugging pencil skirt practically oozes sensuality and leaves a trail of broken hearts in the wake of the Beauty wearing it.
This is the tale of Sabrina and her cheeky brush with flirtation in a coffee shop one Fall day.
It was a lovely Fall morning and Sabrina was living in downtown Richmond and decided to check out this trendy coffee house that everyone was talking about! She was feeling particularly sassy that day, so she wore a tight black pencil skirt with a fitted white poet’s shirt and killer black heels. She released her inner Jane Russell and cat-walked into the entrance that was packed with men waiting in line for their coffee.
Now, we have all had those days. You know those days. Everything feels like it is just going perfectly. People seem to be smiling more, your makeup looks like Pat McGrath laid it down personally, and your feet are not failing you in your heels. Today is a good day.
Sabrina, eyes forward, smizing so hard Tyra Banks is snapping from L.A., strutted by and literally every head turned! You know how when a Drill Sergeant calls an order “Left Face.” We are there, ladies. So, of course, Sabrina smiles and – ever the lady – makes her order and stands politely to await her beverage.
She felt like it was a scene right out of a movie. She had never received this much attention before! She recounts her entry. It was a really great entry. Like, Beyonce level. She is replaying it in her mind, slow motion, and a song is playing – and then a gentleman interrupts her sublime daydream.
This man approached her with this English accent and said, “Excuse me miss, but do you realize your skirt is ripped clear up the back!”
“I’m sorry, what?”
He looks back and says again, “You skirt is ripped all the way up the back.”
Luckily, she had a jacket and tied it around her waist because there was only one way in and one way out! Her coffee hadn’t arrived yet and all she could think of was – rotate.
Rotate. Just rotate slowly. Rotating slowly so her cheeks were against the counter, she began calculating the distance to the door. The excruciating debate of waiting for her coffee or making a quick escape didn’t take long, and her dignity was the victor that day.
For the most part, she did have a fabulous morning. The feeling of confidence that a great skirt can give you is a wonderful thing. I think the lesson here is maybe run a hand down your back-side when all heads are turning and just make sure there are no dodgy rafts afoot. Coffee is sacred and the only rosy cheeks needing to be shown are the ones Estee Lauder provides.
