Skirt Alert! Dancing Skirts

dancing skirts

On today’s Skirt Alert we are featuring some skirts from off of our Pinterest board, ‘Dancing Skirts’. We liked these skirts because they look like something cute to wear on the street, but able to dance in spontaneously if you heard any music. Of course some people do not wear dancing skirts because they would never think of spontaneously dancing. Ever. Never. EVER. Other people do not wear dancing skirts on the street because they would HAVE to dance if they heard music, and the non-dancing skirt keeps them from doing that. Actually, that was how the pencil skirt came to be; did you know that? Ahem. Sorry, off the point. Anyway, here are four of our favorites.

1. The Gray Flamenco Skirt.

This skirt reminded us very strongly of a flamenco skirt, perfect to swish around and stomp your feet in. However, we would have to wear different shoes with this lovely mermaid flamenco skirt, because the model’s shoes do not look exactly stomp-worthy.

2. The Square Dance Skirt.

The perfect skirt to go to a barn or square dance in, this skirt has the perfect country and dance style. I could wear it willingly with a white western-style shirt and cowboy boots.

3. The Red Ballet Skirt.

Of course we had to add a ballet skirt, and this one is just the right style so that it doesn’t exactly stand out on the street, but still looks full enough to plie and jete in! I like the wide waistband and the narrow bow. I would wear this with a plain white tee and black …  you guessed it, ballet flats!

4. The Royal Blue Anthropologie Skirt.

I loooooove this skirt! I don’t know exactly what kind of dancing you would do in it, but it looks like it would be really cool when you twirled and it spread out. I REALLY like the handkerchief hem, and I would wear this anywhere, anytime!

Well, leave us a comment telling what is your favorite kind of skirt!

Always be Exciting,

Skirt Alert! Pink Ribbon Skirts!

For this week’s Skirt Alert! we are featuring pink skirts in honor of Pink Ribbon/Breast Cancer Awareness month.  As we were searching for pink skirts, we found so many fun shades of pink and so many great options!  Get ready for some Pink Ribbon Skirts!

To start with is the Fluer Field Skirt at Anthrpology by Orla Kiely.  This skirt has so much pattern and texture, we imagine the wearer would have to endure some touching and stroking of her skirt!  The shape reminds us of the bubble skirt we refashioned earlier in the week.  The folks at Anthro recommend a lacy femme blouse and raspberry pumps for a ladylike look, and we second the motion!  All in favor…

Also Antro has this awesome skirt!  They call it the Calabria Pencil Skirt, but we call it amazing!  Look at that texture!  I mean really!  And the color is such an intense pink.  Wow!  We love the shoe pairing too!  Metal tipped shoes are all the rage right now.  This one’s definitely going on our Shoes & Skirts board over at Pinterest!

Over at Urban Outfitters we found this Sparkle & Fade Silky Ombre Maxi Skirt.  First of all, as tall females, we are always excited to find Maxi skirts long enough for us, and at 42”, this one fits the bill.  Speaking of bill, it’s on sale for $14.99, so hurry, hurry!  And then lastly, dear readers, you know we have an ombre weakness, so you just knew there was going to be one pink ombre skirt in this collection didn’t you?!

Isn’t this fun?  Sometimes the sound of a pink skirt seems repulsive, but this next one is here to show you how pink can be fun, fun, fun!  Over at Modcloth, we found a pink skirt aptly named Coral Centerpiece Skirt!  With the pleats and the lace inset, we’re just itching to start a new (copycat) project, but we have a post to finish!  Sigh!

On to JJill!  They have this great skirt Tropical Scene Easy Skirt.  It reminds me of a skirt I made one time out of toile home decorating fabric.  It was in brown tones, and I loved it so very much!  Not having worn it for a while, I might have to pull it back out into rotation!  Or even better, we could refashion it!  Oh, now my fingers are really getting itchy!  The elastic waist on this skirt makes it so very, very wearable, one to wear all day and night!

Last, but not least, Ann Taylor has an adorable Perforated Lace Cotton Pencil Skirt in…pink! of course!  We love the look and style!  They are calling the color Guava Juice…mmmm! Makes us thirsty, thirsty for one of these cuties!

Well that’s this week’s Skirt Alert!  Leave us some comment love and direct us to your favorite (pink) skirt!

Make it beautiful,

Skirt Alert – Ombre Skirts

For today’s skirt alert, I decided to do three ombre skirts. I love ombre, especially on skirts!

1. Athleta blue ombre skirt

This is a beautiful ombre maxi skirt that looks like it would be sooo comfortable! I would wear this with brown flats and a brown tee.

2. Anthropologie peach ombre skirt.

I loooooove the lace detail that fades down into a gradual ombre! so classy! I would wear this with brown pumps and a white button-down top.

3. Anthropologie blue giraffe skirt.

The giraffes on this skirt are so adorable!!! I love the tie, and the way the color is darker at the top of the skirt instead of the bottom. I would pair this with black flats and a black button-down blouse.

Well, that’s this week’s Skirt Alert!

Always be exciting,

Skirt Alert! Anthropologie Archival Collection Skirts

In honor of their 20th anniversary, Anthropologie has reissued an archival collection of 20 items.  Three of these items are skirts, and are featured in today’s Skirt Alert.

Sightseer Pencil Skirt

The first is the Sightseer Pencil skirt.  The folks at Anthropologie recommend wearing it with pointy heels and a moto jacket.  Sounds like a perfect outfit for mid-morning tea!  It was originally issued in 2004 with an A-line shape, but reissued with a pencil shape.

Duck cord skirt

The second skirt in the collection is the Duck Cord Skirt.  Reissued from 2004, it clearly is made for a tourist to wear on the streets of Europe…with a light cardigan and some comfortable low walking boots.

Ruffle skirt

The last skirt in the Archival collection is certainly not the least!  No…I’ve saved the best for last!  Presenting the ruffle skirt.  Have I ever mentioned how much I love ruffles?  This one makes my heart flutter!  Just look at the variety and flow of those ruffles.  While the Anthropologie people suggest a casual sweater, I can’t imagine anything this wouldn’t look good with!  I also can’t imagine where I’m going to find $188 to buy it.  Maybe it’s time for the gals at Skirt Fixation to try a copycat version?

One thing Anthropologie archival skirts prove is that skirts can be timeless, updated and beautiful!  Sounds like what we’re all about at Skirt Fixation!  Well, that’s this week’s Skirt Alert!  Until next week…

Make it beautiful,

Audrey
