What an exciting week it has been! No, not really. I've spent the past week monitoring Cassie the Cat's bowel movements. Cassie has been sick a lot this fall/winter, and the vet has finally given a diagnosis - she suffers from chronic constipation and 'megacolon', which is just as nasty as it sounds. You'd be surprised how much sincere happiness a person can feel after successfully scooping lots of kitty poop out of the litter box after several days of not finding any! Anyway. Sorry about that. I wasn't really going to write about kitty poop. I was going to tell you all about long skirts, namely these ones.
Long skirts are very trendy at the moment, I hear, and it so happens that my friend Rosie had four just taking room in her closet. After the initial shock (The 1990s! Goths! Lace with velvet!) I figured that I'd give them a chance anyway. It turns out that if you pair the unlikeliest piece (black see-through lacy skirt, the shortest of the bunch - the other three are ankle-length) with something more current, say, ankle boots, a slouchy cardigan and a pendant, it kind of works. I know that you will probably not find these types of skirts on trendy hipsters or on the pages of Vogue (you'd see the black, narrow, plain kind instead), but I am going to go against the grain and say it : I am all for the more ruffly types. I am getting tired of the sleek, polished, tough and modern looks of the moment, and I am sure a little bit of lace and ruffles never killed anyone.
So far I have worn three out of the four skirts successfully (the white one is challenging this time of year), although I am sad to say that no photographic evidence exists at the moment. I am sure I am not the only one struggling with the 'grainy indoor' vs 'freezing cold outdoor' picture-taking dilemma.
Chris got me this dolphin pendant at an antique store.
