I've had this vintage skirt lying around for two years and last night was the debut... It has wonderful deep pockets but it was originally longer and slightly dowdy so, I did what I do best... I shortened it. The easiest way to update vintage is to play with the hem length. I just need to watch that I don't recklessly shorten everything. The appeal of vintage is that, when worn right, it is timeless. I, however, am not timeless and I don't want to be the 42 year old with the closet full of fabulous miniskirts....or do I?...
This picture was taken along the water front. They've spent a lot of money cleaning up the waterfront in recent years and there is a great path several kilometres long that runs along it. There's even a beach if you follow the trail long enough... I know the water has been cleared for swimming but I still felt pretty daring putting my feet in there. The good news is that I woke up and my feet still looked normal... not glowing, no extra toe... I don't know if I'll swim at the beach any time soon... But maybe if I have kids, they can go swimming there and if they grow up fine then I'll know it's OK to go in.
