THE CHARM OF A BYGONE ERA

There is a particular charm to full skirts, especially those that are all puffed up and below the knee, reminiscent of the swinging 60's. I first wore this skirt in Milan at the S/S Fashion week 2013 where it received a few stares, in awe I hope! The heydays had a particular elegance, and made a remarkable impression on fashion and the revival of trends. We've also seen the return of over sized and swing coats with wide collars this year, firmly taking it's place in the front row at the recent fashion weeks, with cat eye sunglasses taking the look to the next level. My sunnies are all in the spirit of the bygone era, and the Mary Jane shoes equally at home with the trend of full skirts. I have no intention to discard this work of art after the season, and hope to be sporting this skirt long after it's demise as a fashionable trend......perhaps making it my own signature look?

  20. You could choose other elements for a signature look, but damn, girl, you look fabulous in this one! I'm obsessed with this skirt style, and can't find one except for my leather one. I'm going to lay out fabric this afternoon and see if I can make my own! Aren't they great? And I'm glad to see you wearing these pretty T-straps .. I have similar ones, and wear them with enthusiasm even if they aren't for us short girls! Not as well as you, though, I admit. Pretty you!
