Red Sails in the Sunset

As an intermission between photos of what other people were wearing at Sunfest this year, I thought I'd show you the outfit I put together that was the most fun for me to wear.  I got this fabulous skirt at The Sentimentalist and had been waiting to bring it out for Sunfest.  It was handmade and I think the rose and gold fabric is silk.  The temperature had dropped a few degrees and there was a lovely breeze the day I wore it which made the skirt billow like a sail.  My favourite articles of clothing are those that inspire a narrative, and wearing this skirt made me feel like I should be standing on a windswept cliff, scanning the horizon for my lost love's ship.

  3. The skirt is simply divine! I love the color, the volume, the shimmery fabric, the high waistline and the smile that you have as you wear it. You must have had many admiring glances as you swept by.

  5. The colours and sheen on that beautiful skirt are amazing, such drama! It works really well with the simple vest and leather cuff, to reduce the "costume-iness" of it, if you see what I mean! Though as you know, I'm not averse to a bit of costume drama myself! Did you spot any ships or lost loves on the distant horizon? xxxxx
