'The Brightness of Her [Skirt] Would Shame Those Stars as Daylight Doth a Lamp'


As soon as this pretty skirt hit my doorstep and I ripped it out of the package, I had to blog it.  Love the bright color, love the midi length and love the cotton/linen material.

I had a mind to show it with my beloved fox shirt, but since it was kinda overcast and COLD, I decided to give my mustard cashmere turtleneck one last whirl. 

Finished it all off with some socks (decided to try this trend and I think I like it) and my sky high nude heels (which you saw in my previous post here).  I'm quite surprised that I can actually walk in these shoes.  I used to guffaw at girls who said their 6 inch heels were comfy, but now I see that I was wrong. The platform really does save your foot.  So do, ladies, go and try some on if you are still a bit wary of the towering heel and see for yourself!








I didn't get all the shots I wanted with this marvelous skirt for two reasons, (1) I was in a 'No Trespassing' area and I kept looking around for the police to come and cart me off, and (2) there was some weird animal in the distance staring at me which, at the time, I believed to be a ravenous coyote, and not entirely sure if he and his friends were about to attack me from the brush, I hightailed it out of there!

Do any of you ladies defy the law or brave the wild while shooting any of your pics?

What I'm Wearing:
Cashmere Turtleneck: Lord and Taylor
Skirt:  Asos
Shoes: Steve Madden
Socks: JCrew
Necklace:  Juicy Couture
Cuff: Ted Rossi - Gifted
Claw Spike Earrings:  Asos
Rings: YSL

A BIG THANK YOU to Carla of Cougar Vintage for giving me the Blogger Luxury award! Go and check her out pronto ladies and gents! Her vintage pieces, her bold color choices and prints are drool worthy!  And also again to the very witty Alex, Of Mice and Minutiae for giving me the One Lovely Blog award!  Check out random things about me and blog mentions here!

  1. Stunning. Love the blue with the bright yello turtle neck. Socks are divine and love the shoes. At first glance I thought the socks were actually part of the shoe. Nice. I almost got jumped by a few rowdy squirrels once when shooting for a post lol.

  3. That skirt is gorgeous!! :)
    I'm glad you didn't get attacked by any police or coyotes! Phew! Hehe!
    I haven't really done anything that extreme whilst being photographed for my blog - just standing up on hand rails is all I can think of that I have done ;)

  65. great score on the skirt! I love your accessories in this look.. I don't ever go too far to take pictures.. although this summer I will make my mom come with me to more pretty spots then indoors.. It is helpful to have someone nice/someone in your family to take your pictures because then it is less awkward. haha :)
