I love your skirt

I’m baaaaaack! 🙂  I know I’ve been away for way to long. Sorry guys, I promise there will be more posts coming later.


Wearing "A Taste of Grace" orginal skirt by Janie M. Davis.vpin

Wearing “A Taste of Grace” customized skirt by designer & owner,  Janie M. Davis.

You never know what a simple greeting and kind word(s) could lead to.

If I had not said these simple words, “I love your skirt!” I would not have the fabulous high-waisted maxi skirt I’m wearing here today.

A woman walk into an event I was attending. She was wearing a gorgeous high-waisted african print maxi skirt. I immediately leaned over to my husband and said, “Oh my goodness, I love her skirt”. Once I saw she was walking towards me I instantly and literally reached out, tapped her, smiled and said, “I love your skirt”.  She replied back, “Thank you, I made it.”  My mouth dropped open. Everything about her skirt screamed quality. The construction of the garment and the way she wore it looked tailored, crisp, sophisticated, chic …just beautiful. I asked if she had a card and before we left the event I had her card. Her name is Janie M. Davis and owner of A Taste of Grace. I emailed her as soon as I got home that night.

Despite being in town for only a couple of days for personal pleasure and not business:

  1. Janie stopped by JoAnn’s Fabric to get a tape measure.
  2. She and her husband stop by my home before leaving town.
  3. She took my measurements.
  4. Stayed in constant communication.
  5. Shared several fabric/print options via text.
  6. Shipped the final garment to me via priory mail.


I could not be happier with her work. I’m so very happy I spoke to her that day. I think she is amazing because she is a genuinely friendly person. She’s so delightful to be around.

When I received my skirt I immediately tried it own, snapped the photo below, sent it to Janie and told I loooooooove it!


When time permitted I wore it again,  slightly styled differently and photographed it with my Canon EOS 5D Mark ii camera. See photos below:
