Hello there, embellished skirt lovers, I'm back with more from my collection.
They fuck you up, your skirts and shoes
They don't mean to but they do
I'm taking liberties with the poem
Larkin would not approve.
This isn't a Mexican skirt, but it is in a similar style. This one's from Target via the Goodwill. The sweep isn't that wide but it would still benefit from a crinoline. As I was just off to run errands I didn't bother.

Check out the sweep on this one.
The skirt isn't vintage, but the blouse and handbag are. I also wore a nifty little purple bolero with the outfit but forgot to get photos. The tooled leather belt is something my cousin Andrea gave me in the mid-70's! I've kept it because I like it, and though I wear it a bit looser than I did in 1975, it does still fit.
The belt practically screams, Arizona!
Whereas the bag screams, Mexico! My love of tooled leather handbags nearly equals my love of a good embellished skirt-luckily they look good together.

Wonder what laid this egg?
Here's a couple more from older posts:
I just unpacked this one for yet another season.
And this beauty that sheds sequins all over.
We have all sorts of air quality alerts this weekend due to agricultural burning in Kansas blowing up our way (Thanks, Kansas!). It sort of limits any outdoor activities with Danny's asthma so perhaps we'll find a nice museum to spend time at. I hope you have a nice weekend, free of air pollution.
