It’s A Skirt, Belted

I am very fortunate.  People have always been kind towards my creative outfit stylings, even random strangers.  I am often stopped and paid nice compliments on my choice of dress.  Sometimes, to this I respond, “Thanks, it’s a skirt belted.”  The raised eyebrow, the curious double take, the ‘ooh, I see’ are all common remarks.  I secretly hope that my revelation will seep deep into their subconscious, grow like a seed and later influence their selection upon standing in front of their wardrobe.  Fashion jedi-mind trick.

For instance, today I am wearing a sweeping ruffled, chevron Peruvian skirt as a tube dress tightened with a vintage mustard cinch belt with giant gold hammered discs.  It enjoys a very high ROC.  I found it on a trip to Pa’ia in Maui in a trendy boutique.  Realizing its length would overwhelm my tiny frame (drag on the sidewalk behind me), I tried it on as a dress and it worked.  Here’s to challenging the status quo!

Brave Leather makes the BEST belts. The Marilee Belt in a perfect shade of camel.

Free People Ruffle Skirt can be worn as a dress or a skirt. I think it would look fetching with a fitted tank and a low-slung tribal belt.
