Skirt Angst #1

I adore skirts.

That said,
it seems that I have much angst when it comes to wearing them, as I typically fret over what to wear on top and/or finding the right leggings, tights, or shoes for down below.

This is a new-used Mexican skirt that I bought in a Scottsdale consignment shop for $13.

Here’s a hand-painted vintage Mexican model that I bought for $5 from a friend.

This  consignment shop sweetie was made in Paris!

And this is my long-time favorite ‘artsy’ skirt.

Even though I have a few favorites,
I’m thinking that circle skirts might not be so current right now…
so I thought that adding an underlayer of a slip or another skirt might make them appear  longer (which I prefer since I’m such a shortie) and update them a bit.

I also feel so dressed up when I’m wearing these skirts…
yet I think I’ll make it a personal challenge to wear at least one skirt (or dress) a week all summer long…
and publicly record my progress!

  4. I absolutely adore them. If, ever you think of getting rid of them, please think of me! I will buy them up in a snap! Your favorite is my favorite, I love the faces hiding in the folds of the skirt!!!

  5. Yay, I want to receive follow-ups so had to add this!

  6. Ooh, very pretty skirts!
    You should wear them often!!

  10. I love every single one! I simply can’t decide on my fave. I like the way you’ve kept it simple on top with the black top. You made me remember that I bought a fab skirt similar to yours at a garage sale – then gave it away when I moved overseas, wah!

  11. Those skirts are gorgeous! I like that one you’re wearing with the black top best, but that art skirt is so cool!! You definitely need to wear these often.

  12. No …these are very cool. Global looks are very current, and you have a specific take on this cultural link to where you live and what you love. Very, very cool.

  13. Such pretty skirts, I love the fact you have great individual style….well done you! Love for you to check out my blog? xx

  14. Great looking skirt! I have something similar from Disegual and your pictures remind me that I need to dig it out soon!
