Day 348: My Favourite Colour

Who: Melanie at Bag and Beret

What: The Travelling Yellow Skirt Freak Show

When: A while ago (have I told you trying to buy a house keeps getting in my way!)

Where: At, around and in the vicinity of ACCA

Why: Do you even have to ask?

Who Else: B—— for the photos, Melbourne Bike Share for the props (although I did pay for that, and we spent so long riding around getting moving pictures that they charged me again so I am not really sure why I am telling you about them: this isn't a plug, except that they are quite cool!)

What the ?: Sunshine incarnate in the form of a yellow skirt travels the world searching for women, bold and beautiful, who make it their own for a day, or a week and share their own take on its joyous light with everyone out there who thinks that being an exceptional individual with the daring and bravado to walk your own way, strut your own stuff and be your own you is a good thing! That's my take on it, but you can read the full story on the link to the skirt above. Make sure you check out all the wonderful women by whom the skirt has passed.

The Outfit
Skirt: Melanie at Bag and Beret
Jackets: Both thrifted in the US
Belt: Thrifted
Tights: Retail
Earrings: Retail
Shoes: Irregular Choice Hook Line & Sinker

Photographer de Jour: B——

  1. I adore the yellow skirt, and you've done it proud! xox

  2. (reposting in case the last one disappeared...) Hahaha! Wonderful, just wonderful styling of the yellow skirt! It was worth the wait. Seeing her billow on your bicycle is a joy. Thanks for participating in the Travelling Yellow Skirt Freak Show. I am gobsmacked how each woman makes the skirt something completely different, as you have done here. Thanks again. I'll shall do a post on this soon.

  3. OH YES, how joyful! Love it, the skirt, the shoes, the attitude. Hope you were singing loudly as you cycled.

  4. FABULOUS!!! I love your dress version of the infamous yellow skirt! Absolutely charming photos...the bicycle, the flowers...well done! Your accessories...the petticoat, the hosiery, and the shoes....FANTASTIC!!!

  5. Shared on Google +. My fav part of the outfit is the pinafore ~

    Cheers from a fellow TYSFS wearer.

  6. I adore it! You did it wonderfully, bravo!!!

  7. I have seen this traveling skirt in some how you styled it!

    BTW, I host a weekly link up on Thursdays and hope that you will join me.


  8. These pictures are fabulous! Stopping by from Shanna's link up : ).

  9. Beautiful animation! Showcasing the skirt's volume and foofiness! JJ

  10. GORGEOUS!! I lurve the actions shots!

  11. Fabulous incarnation of Yellow Skirt - what wonderful action shots and excellent accessories! Beautiful!!!

  12. Most excellent biking adventure with the yellow skirt and heels ever. And who is that headless stiff wearing your clothes? She's got nothing on the real thing, you that is. Bravo!

  13. Oh you have done the skirt proud!!! Great styling. I don't want to repeat what Sue said, but I totally agree with her. Were you not afraid the skirt might get caught in the wheel? Such a delightful way of modelling. I cannot say what I prefer, the coat on it or the shirt. They are both perfect for the skirt. And the shoes.... ah the shoes... fantastic.

  14. Beauteous and bright and bicycle-bedecked! Just when I thought the TYS had been through every incarnation and amazing location (it was in the Rijksmuseum, for chrissakes!), you have added a whole new dimension - motion. Just brilliant! I love the blue bike, and those amazing shoes. You have truly done justice to this piece of international sunshine!

  15. Fantastic!!! Especially the shoes.


  16. Who I have seen some of the pictures of the travelling skirt, fab pictures. Stunning outfit aww amazing shoes :)

Day 279: Entertainment and Wishes

I have brain-freeze from a three hours/three hours/ten hours-during-the-day sleeping pattern over the last three days twenty-four hour periods (that ole chestnut, again) and so even though it is not Sunday, I am getting in early and loosening the clenched up brain cells by cheating on topic ideas with Sunday Social. Their link actually goes up tommorrow so be sure to check back and see what everyone else had to say when Sunday eventually does roll around.

Q: What is currently on your wish list?

A: I need nothing. Nothing. So let's talk about want. I want to be able to find some amazing thrifted pieces on my upcoming (eight sleeps) trip to the States. Luck and fate will have a lot to do with it, but I would be very happy to find some, or all, of the following as well: a chambray shirt, a real bomber jacket (just got one that I had different ideas about when I bought it from SheInside—it's really just a fleece jacket), belts, a vintage leather jacket, more tutus, sumptuous f…

Wear 1: Dropped My Shopping.

Day One of three hundred and sixty-five pictures of Irene (left) and I (right) on the internet. We're using it as a way to develop or realise a fashion style, and as a friendly competition as to who wore it better? Like every journey or quest, this year's project will teach me a little, make me think a bit and lend me some laughs and enjoyment. I hope also to slowly make sure everything in my clothes closet and my shoe closet is utilised: even perhaps the bags and boxes of outrageous, or not, op-shopped (thrifted) items secreted in cupboards and under beds. Other hopes: fewer words (believe it or not), more pictures and time to catch up on unfinished blogs from the last three years!

I had my outfit planned, but as I dressed this morning for work, I, well, chickened out. I lost the cape and replaced it with a black cardigan. I thought my work colleagues would think I looked strange and slightly overdressed. Lesson One: I am not brave in person (posting a silly picture on the in…
