Horse and Stagecoach

I love novelty and border print circle skirts from the 1950s! Who doesn't, really?

The problem is you rarely see them pop up and when you do they aren't usually ever in my size.

So when I saw this baby I knew I had to grab it (even if it was a little more than I typically like to spend on myself).












Details
Skirt - Vintage via eBay
Blouse - Vintage from awhile ago
Purse - Vintage via an estate sale (of one awesome woman whom I call The Sweater Lady...I'll have to make a post about her one day!)
All Jewelry and Watch - Vintage via garage sales
Shoes - Vintage via garage sale
Belt - Vintage via garage sale

The skirt is labeled 'Cherni Creations". I'm pretty sure it's a John Wolf fabric (who made great western prints including this Overland Mail Company one) and it's just fabulous- so detailed and interesting! Plus, it has a great fall color palette that will be fun to pair with a lot of different things!

I went super western with it today and accessorized it with a lot of my favorite cowboy and country-themed jewelry.

I think this is the most pictures I've included of an outfit in a post before, so it's a testament to how much I love this skirt! Plus, my mother did a wonderful job as photographer!

Now I'm sort of addicted to these scenic print skirts and will definitely be trying to nab a few more in the future! I've seen New York skyline prints and even the Grand Canyon- hello! :-)

  1. I've seen those skirts a lot and I love them a lot! I have a hard time believing I could ever truly pull it off, though. The western theme is adorable, and I love how you built an outfit around the skirt!
