I answered, "No where special."
She replied, "Then why are you dressed so fancy?"
Its funny how that in today's typical suburban American world, a simple cotton skirt is considered "fancy." I guess people are just used to jeans and t-shirts, or shorts and tank tops. When this vintage skirt was made, (in the late 50s or early 60s) this is what typical American women wore on easy errand-running Saturdays. It's super comfortable, waaaayyy more comfy than any pair of jeans.. and more importantly it's fun!
I got this skirt at my favorite Kansas City vintage store, Donna's Dress Shop. Kansas City is a great place to visit if you love vintage shopping.. there are countless stores all within a few miles of each other with so much variety, and great prices!
I am looking forward to seeing how I can style the skirt differently in the coming months, to make it work for cooler weather. I plan on trying to bring out the purple details of the skirt more, and probably adding a sweater and tights. With fall right around the corner, I am definitely thinking about reworking some of my favorite pieces so I can wear them all year long.
