Novelty Print

Evidently, novelty (or conversational) prints are trending. Horses, cats, birds, and insects seem to be the most popular animals to be printed on clothing this spring. But I still love my dog-portrait skirt.


Shirt, American Eagle (thrifted). Skirt, Herman Geist (vintage and shortened). Belt, thrifted. Shoes, Fioni. Bracelets, vintage and Garden of the Gods gift shop. Cuff, Target. Earrings, self-made. Bag, Fossil (gift).

My skirt has never started a conversation, though. Well, other than the recurring one where Beefy expresses his dislike* for the print.



*Okay, I start that conversation, not Beefy. And it usually goes like this:

“I’m wearing your favorite skirt!”
“Ugh. The dog skirt?”
“Yup!”
“Why?”
“Because it’s cute!”
"It's really not my favorite."
"I know."

Stimulating, eh?

I think the skirt is really cute! I love unexpected prints. I wish I came across them more often while thrifting.

I think my Taller Half has learned better than to express his extreme like or dislike of my closet.

If it helps, I think it's *my* favorite skirt!

okay when I win the lottery and you grow tired of this skirt I'll make an offer. I just love it although it wont probably look as good on me as it does on you....

I love the skirt - it must be a man/woman thing. I like the shirt too but I'm not sure the two do each other any favours. I thinks it's because it is both a check and a different colour - one or other would work but not both.

That skirt is so COOL!!! /////love the whole outfit--and I so love tiny gingham checks on a shirt!

I think it's super cool that the skirt has checked "ribbons" to coordinate with the gingham shirt. And I love gingham shirts - have been hunting them at the thrift stores....

I really like this skirt. How can he not like this skirt? It must be the chromosomes.
