The hills are alive,
With the sound of music
With songs they have sung
For a thousand years – Julie Andrews, The Sound of Music
I was lucky enough to have grown up with musicals. It plays a huge part in making me who I am today. And this skirt takes me back in time to the day I first watched a musical. It was amongst the best musicals ever made – The Sound of Music! I was awe-struck by the beauty of the hills coming to life through music and the magical way that your favourite things could make everything better. But most of all, I wished I was one of those children (even in those “curtain clothes”) in a midi skirt singing and dancing to the sound of music. Although this isn’t the same skirt as the musical (mine’s got the modern twist to it), it couldn’t stop my heart from swelling with happiness – the very same feeling I experienced the day I saw this musical for the first time!
