Visible Monday and the upcoming Traveling Yellow Skirt Freak Show

Click Here for Our Weekly Link-Up!

Showcasing today's frock on Visible Monday hosted by notdeadyetstyle.  It is a subdued Monday for me.

Jones New York Navy Blue Jacket
Banana Republic Platinum Shirt
Koret paisley print skirt
(all previous thrift shop finds)

The weekend's thrift shop finds were this professionally framed print of vase full of flowers ($6.50).  I thought it was headed for my office at work, but it landed in one of the rooms in the house.

A NWT platinum Banana Republic short-sleeved collared shirt ($4.50) AND finally some cashmere, a Charter Club long sleeved pullover ($4.50).  

This Fio lime green sweater ($4.50) and Insane Clown Posse belt (50 cents) are in preparation for the Traveling Yellow Skirt Freak Show instituted by bagandaberet.  While I am not a fan of ICP's music, I think they've chosen a great name.

  1. Request the skirt by email to the current skirt-holder, who will announce its next stop.
  2. If you like, alter the skirt with paint, sewing, markers or other means. Please try not to shorten the skirt much because the length is part of its charm, and please maintain the skirt's flexible sizing. 
  3. Post a photo of yourself in or with the skirt as real wear or inspirational wear and I shall post a photo here too as part of a Global Compilation (GC).
  4. If you are REALLY inspired, post a short video clip of you twirling or dancing in the skirt so "Just Bad Enough," my art project band with Sandra, can include it in a "music video" GC.
  5. Announce who the next skirt-holder will be on your blog. If you do not receive any requests, it will be time for the skirt to fly home to me.
You can put the logo below (or in my sidebar) in your blog if you'd like.

Yes - my yellow skirt is flying around the world and it wants YOU to style her as part of a I-surrender-to-positivity celebration. The globe-trekking was Sarah's idea (from Misfits Vintage) and I think it's too much fun. Plus it's much easier than mailing a gnome - or myself considering how gnomish I look.

I believe Edie Pop is up next, then Me and then Amber of butaneanvil.
