About This Video: My friend Gail Theile wore a plaid maxi skirt and black cardigan to her retirement party a while back. I didn’t get any decent photographs of her that day, so I pestered her into meeting me for lunch and wearing the outfit again, so I could capture a few images to show on JLJBackToclassic.com.
After we’d finished taking the photographs–and my cell phone battery was on its last leg–we thought of filming her in the skirt, because it flared so beautifully when she moved.
Above is that video, which unfortunately is quite short, since my phone died mid-shoot. But once viewing that short clip, I realized it was much more than just a video about what a woman had worn that day. Because, when Gail twirled, she sparkled. That’s what true beauty looks like.
