Throw Back Thursday Fashion Link Up: My First Maxi Skirt

I have a mind that remembers that most mundane things that are totally useless and forget things that are important.  I have known my husband now for 16 years and I still get his birthday mixed up.  To my defense, it's a mix up of one day so it really isn't that bad. On the other hand, I am really good at remembering people's faces and conversations that we've had.  

I remember the conversation I had with the sales person at Banana Republic when I bought my first maxi skirt.  It went something like this...

Me: Do you have a matching top to this skirt?
Salesperson: No 
Me: Do you have a brown top to go with it?
Salesperson: No
Me: What can I wear with this skirt?
Saleperson goes and pulls pink top and says you don't need to match the skirt and pink with be a good contrast.  

I remember thinking, why would I wear this with pink?  There's no pink in the skirt.  I bought the skirt anyways because I just loved the pattern and figured I could wear it with white.  This skirt is at least 4 years old and I am sure back then I would not have worn it with a windowpane top with it.  I am now wiser with fashion and I am bolder with my color choices and it gives me more option to wear this skirt.  

I can't consider myself having any special talent (like singing or dancing) so I will say my talent is remembering useless conversation.  What's your special talent?
