Pretty Dancers

Today’s Winter Edition Challenge prompt is to draw inspirations from a certain decade or region, so it’s a no brainer for me to channel the 1950’s with this lovely circle skirt. It’s another rather impulsive purchase from Etsy, but I don’t regret it because it’s so swirly, it’s embroidered with little dancing figures, and pockets! A dress or skirt with pockets is always my weakness.

I was also thinking about adding a scarf for the ABC’s of Style challenge, “K for Knit”, but it was a little warm, so I made do with the cardigan. Hey, it’s knitted, right?

  12. Michelle says:

    The skirt is definitely a keeper.

  13. Love this! You California girls are killing me. A winter challenge is just not the same for you. Swirly skirts are the best.

    Wow. I saw the first picture and immediately thought “50’s”. You got it to a “T”!

    Seriously love the look you created. That skirt is divine. 🙂

  17. Megan says:

    You look gorgeous, this silhouette suits you so well. And I really like the pictures under the tree.
    You should probably buy a big petticoat to put under the skirt. 🙂

  19. Love the last photo where you’re spinning in the skirt! It’s totally something you ought to wear dancing 🙂
