Swish

So if you follow me on the Twitter you will have known that over the weekend I purchased a fairy princess skirt. Well ok, it's a square dancing petticoat but I like to wear it as it's own skirt sometimes. And by sometimes I, obviously, mean once to go to the pub for lunch (ok ok I got her to cut off the tags and I wore it out of the store!) since I only acquired this bit of heaven on Sunday.

I wanted to make this full skirt even more pouffy and give it extra twirlability! And since it's meant to get cold again I wanted something bright to take advantage of the beautiful sunshine!

sweater & skirt: Smart Set, the skirt is from 2005
tights: Celeste Stein, gift
shoes: Hard Hearted Harlot via ebay
petticoat: Sam's from Decadence Vintage in Edmonton



Today I am thankful for the sidewalks being 78% clear of snow and ice! It makes the walk to work faster as I'm not shuffling like a granny and makes sashaying and strutting that much more effective!

OMG. How amazing are the coloured tights?! The fluffy petticoat does give the skirt a nice oomph and shape. I suppose you can also twirl around prettily!

I love the tights, but by now I think everyone has said that, too!

The petticoat is awesome, and is making me very excited for mine! I had a wedding dress fitting this weekend, and had them remove the multiple layers of crinoline. There is enough for two, so I'm going to turn them into petticoats and dye them different colours!
