Poodle Skirt Chic

Slightly bouffant ponytail

My best pin up face (bordering on duck face) 
What I Wore:
Dress (worn as a shirt): Made by me (no pattern)
Skirt: Thrifted
Shoes: Thrifted (Talize)
Earrings: Target

When I got this skirt I thought it would look great with my stripey sailor dress as a top. I wasn't sure if it would work because it would have been weird if the skirt part was sticking out at the bottom. Luckily it was the perfect length! It also felt neat having two layers of skirt, kind of like wearing a petticoat, it was so nice and full. I think I need to get a real petticoat to wear because it was a lot of fun, I imagine that is how a real 50s lady must have felt like. It is kind of sad how certain fashion staples of old have fallen by the wayside, younger generations can easily miss out on some great looks and styles. I definitely felt like I should have been sitting in a malt shop sipping a soda while wearing this get up (hence the pin up style photo shoot). A couple of people even commented to me that my skirt reminded them of a poodle skirt. If I had been wearing my saddle shoes it would have really set off the look, oh well next time.    

Today should be a good day. I have to work and then Colin and I are going over to our friends' house for D&D (yup I'm a nerd). We played a couple campaigns when we lived in Halifax, but this is our first Hamilton group. We started playing a few weeks ago and it has been super fun so far,definitely looking forward to that tonight. Hope you are all having a lovely Wednesday!
