Saturday's Inspiration: Take me out for a spin



These two photos remind me of my vintage skirt that's been hidden in the back of my closet for far too long. I could try to come up with another combination than this one I wore a year ago but I like the powdery colors so much I would probably end up repeating this look or just adding a pop of color with a bright bag like this girl below.

And speaking of ankle lenght skirts... I could really slap myself when I saw this picture of fellow blogger friend Nil on the Sartorialist rocking a long white pleated skirt. I used to have almost the exact same one (which would be perfect to wear now) but in a hasty decision last winter (e.g. a brief moment I've gone crazy) I was convinced that I had to dye it black. Having bought a dye for the wrong fabric my formerly white skirt turned out an uneven greyish purple and landed in the trash bin...

ouch sorry to hear about your skirt! i know what you mean, you have something in your closet for a very long time, and after a while you decide to do something with it! most of the time it is the wrong decision. i have thrown the wrong things away! love the skirts but it is not me! too peachy and feminine. but i am sure you look smashing in your vintage skirt
