Yellow skirt productions

Sisterhood





  

This is a well travelled skirt.

Melanie first wore it here and then here.


And it facilitated much trans-continental conversation, which resulted, several months later, 
in the skirt being shipped across the seas, to me...



Along with a beautiful handmade card 
from amazing artist Melanie. 



So now this skirt is with me, for a short visit. She enjoyed her afternoon flapping around in the crazy wind, until the thunderheads rolled in...


But she won't stay for long... 
Helga hears the siren song of the yellow skirt, so this treasure is heading across the ditch to New Zealand for an adventure.

I wore:
Tshirt - Op shopped and painted by me
Bangles - Op shopped 
Daisy headpiece - Gift from Desiree (buy your own from Sassy Vamps)

Miss Maple said...

Aaaah! I want to come to you and dance on the beach with you. I looove these pictures. It's decades that I saw the sea for the last time.
And I love the idea of a yellow skirt travelling around the world and bringing fun to all you girls. The yellow eyeshadow is stunning. Wish you a great week. I think you're still at home in your beach shack. Am I right? Hugs from Miss Maple

Marla said...

Your photos are amazing. The color is so rich. I love looking at them.

Forest City Fashionista said...

So cool to see this post after our chat! That skirt was made to be worn on a wind-swept beach by a raven-haired babe in a cool t-shirt. I love that card; Melanie is such a fabulous artist. Can't wait to see what magic Helga creates with the lemon-yellow skirt of mystical proportions!

Rose&Bird said...

The skirt is fantastic, just right for posing in sea breezes and I love your yellow eyeshadow x

Kat said...

Gorgeous skirt! What a fun idea sending it around the world to different bloggers. It's like sisterhood of the travelling pants....but with a skirt.

The Grande Dame said...

That is such a cute clever card. The skirt is gorgeous but I think I like your tshirt more!

Melanie said...

Sarah!! That carrier pigeon found its way to you... You look like divinity in this skirt. Doesn't it billow perfectly in the wind? And you had the perfect day for photos on the beach shoot. The skirt is tremendously happy now. Your t-shirt is PERFECT! and so are your eyeshadow, headpiece and bracelets. You are farking awesome!! Hugs to Helga for the next shot...
