Ever since this summer’s 10×10 wardrobe challenge, I’ve been finding myself reaching more and more often for an easy tee-shirt to throw on.
I made this skirt back in 2014, and have always (in my head) thought of it as my Pirate Queen Skirt. There’s something about the white and red, combined with the multi directional striping, plus the way it ripples behind me when I walk, that invokes all the qualities of a Pirate Queen.
For me, the qualities of a Pirate Queen include: Stunningness. Steadiness. Strength. Sovereignty. Clear Seeing. Knowing. Badassery.
Then add on top of a Pirate Queen Skirt, a Labyrinth referencing tee-shirt, heels high enough to keep the skirt hem from dragging to far on the ground, some standard accessories, plus sunnies, and it’s an outfit good to go.
What I’m wearing…
Shirt: The Babe with the Power Tee in black from Hello, Oui Fresh
Skirt: Made-by-me, pattern self-drafted (More about the skirt here.)
Shoes: Sandal wedges from BCBGeneration (old, and I’m not seeing anything similar).
Sunglasses: From Ricky’s (unfortunately, they don’t appear to have sunnies online)
Lip: Le Marc Lip Crème from Marc Jacobs in color #246 – Slow Burn
Never miss a look.
