Start Wearing Purple

Friday, September 16, 2011
Seriously? I tied my shirt again?? I know. I'm so original it's awesome. I loved wearing this skirt as a...skirt and not a slip this time. It's so twirlable and it even swishes when you walk! I think I'm 8 again to be excited about things like that. But, really, I can't be the only one! What gets you excited about your clothes?

  1. Well, I don't get excited about my clothes, but I DO get excited about anything that makes me feel 8 again--sledding, making pancakes, little things.

  2. I most definitely get excited about a swishy, twirly skirt!  I especially love a maxi that flares out at the bottom and flows when I walk.

  7. I always feel more elegant and fun in a twirly skirt! Plus it looks way cooler for my ballroom dance class.

  8. I looks great! A very clean and simple outfit, but yet very stilish and comfortable :) I would definetely wear it and add a luxury watch to it. This way it will have an extra touch of glamour to it :D

  11. You are totally allowed to be excited about a twirly skirt. Pretty sure that's why they were invented.

  12. Lol, I too get excited about twirly skirts. Something else that gets me excited about my outfit is when my accessories match to the "T"

  13.  I love twirly skirts too. They're especially great for the warmer seasons because they don't stick to you as much. Love the corsage you added!

    I still twirl in skirts and dresses (even if they're not swishy. it's just fun!).

  26. I'm a big fan of the swishability of skirts as well as the tied top.

  27. After all your professions of love to the shirt-tie, I decided to try it. I came to the conclusion I will be tying more shirts. Those with larger..ahem..'girls'.. should all try it (elongates the torso since the ta-ta's tend to cover that bit up...)

  30. Honestly? Swirly twirly skirts are my absolute FAVE. Nothing wrong with being in your 20s, going on 8 :)

  31. i love things like that. what gets me excited about my clothes is when they are too big (cause I've lost weight!!!)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I really like that skirt on its own. Seeing your tied shirts is making me wonder if I can pull it off... probably not. 

    P.S. Thanks for being one of the only people I've found who doesn't dig Missoni. People out here in the suburbs are flipping out over it and I really, really don't get it.

  33. Loving that bag!

  34. I am just starting to add jewelry to my outfits. I like the store "Charming Charlies" which has color coded accessories galore! I sometimes bring in a top or skirt and their staff is really helpful in assisting me in finding jewelry that fits both my personality and the clothing item I brought in.

  35. Very cute--I love the silhouette of your skirt. :)

  36. Golgol Bordello is one of my favorite bands! So that's funny that you titled your post that. :) I love the shirt tied or otherwise!

  37. I know this may sound way too girly (though I'm not really into the pinky girly stuff) but I really love it when I find a piece of cute clothing that has a bow on it.

  38. Swishy skirts and I are like BFF's. And you got knotting in my head and I had to do it the other day heh...
