70's Does 50's Skirt
When I spotted this skirt, I knew it was coming home with me, but it was only after I got home that I realised why-my mother had a tablecloth in a similar pattern. I should have known, almost everything I buy is the result of nostalgia tugging at me.
The colours, are perfect for this time of year, and I'm lucky enough to look good in brown. I'd place this skirt in the late 70's, possibly early 80's based on the fabric, label, and cut, but I could be way off.
Twin Set: Sears, ages ago
70's Skirt: Thrifted, $3.00
Brooch: Antique fair, sometime in the 90's
Earrings: Can't remember, about a decade ago
Ring: Antique shop western, Mass 90's
Bangles: Thrifted, Goodwill
The skirt was purchased on the same trip that yielded some fantastic sweaters, which I will try to get photographed soon. It is still a bit warm for heavy sweaters here, but I'm eager to show off some of the crazy embroidery. Your, "Ugly sweater" is my treasure.
