My Soul Is Iron Grey

This Carven skirt might me my favorite wardrobe item at the moment. It's just such a special piece that I'm still sometimes surprised that I own it. Just wearing it takes me back to when I first became aware of the fashion industry--cutting out editorials I admired and collaging them into new combinations within my own quiet world that seemed miles and miles from that reality. There was always this perfect world crafted in those magazines; every detail painstakingly chosen and each shot so carefully composed. Yet, everything did seem like pure fantasy--they were clothes you didn't see walking down the streets even in cities, unfit for school or office apparel. I didn't think that "fashion" was a thing ordinary (especially mousy and petite!) people could connect to beyond of admiring from a distance. This skirt reminds me of those clothes I'd see on those glossy pages and the outfits I never thought I'd be bold enough to wear, but somehow here I am...

That skirt is so pretty, I'm not really sure what the print is but to me, it looks like a mushroom cloud. Is that what it is? I have seen it on another blogger and I still couldn't tell what it is.

What a fun and original skirt...Love the way you kept the look monochromatic, it really emphasizes the skirt and looks very sharp. I'd also love to see that skirt worn with more of a mixed, laid-back outfit. I think it could work many different ways.
