It is still hot as stink. I'm mellllltinnnnng...
Normally, I detest wrap-around skirts. They don't have enough overlap and they open up when you sit down. I can't imagine why designers keep making wrap skirts that blow open at the slightest gust of wind and put our hoo-hahs out on display for all to see.
However, I love this one:
The inside edge of the wrap is all the way over on my right butt-cheek, where my hand is at my waist! Now that's some smart fabric engineering. It's also silk...but doesn't wrinkle.
I love the muted yet still vibrant colours in this: the green, taupe cream and brown/black. And another cool thing, the underneath taupe layer (with yellow and red accent bits) can also be worn on the outside. Pretty pattern:
Ah, amazing what a little Googling will find. Apparently, this is one of those "make a bunch of outfits out of this simple piece" clothing items - check it out here (click on "Vintage" and go to the 4th slide, ooh, and there's a video on the different ways to wear it, cool). I'm going to have fun with this...this would make a great item to take on vacation.
I also love knowing I got a bargain: I paid $22 and they sell for $59. Ha!
See? I was not exaggerating: Skirt of the Gods! Or goddesses!
The brown tie-top is also new-to-me, from taking in a bunch of my clothes to my favourite consignment shop for credit.
The other stuff:
Good 'ol Naturalizers, Mom's choker and some vaguely Indian-looking earrings.
