Megan Mae's challenge I am. Tuesday's challenge was 'platforms or flats'. I don't own a pair of platforms (unless clogs count). So I hope that this barefoot bohemian look counts.
Actually, I sampled this look weeks ago after I'd noticed Lynne wearing a reversible silk skirt and I thought of it again when Patti wore one on Monday. Here, I'm combining two--with one fashioned as a top. I know when I purchased my first one off of eBay (the bottom one), it came with a video that showed the 101 ways it could be styled as a dress. I'm wearing the original as a skirt and the most recent thrift store find as a top. I've added brass bells around one ankle--an accessory my grandson loved as it announced my movements about the house. I'm told that these skirts are fashioned from recycled saris.
I like the bohemian vibe of this look and if women my age still attended outdoor concerts I could easily wear it out into the world--though I should probably leave the wrist watch at home. I actually sampled the top with this curious pair of metallic flats.
Wednesday's challenge was tribal or floral. I don't own any "tribal" (and Jacqueline at The Hourglass Files has an excellent take on this) and I wear florals infrequently because of a personal connotations I attach to them. They remind me of a "church lady" look I actually wore on Sundays throughout the 80s. But, this look highlights two more of the pieces I found when I visited the Goodwill Outlet store several weeks ago.
I still have classes to tend to today and only then, will we think about how we might celebrate this birthday...
Does anyone have suggestions?
