Jungle Skirt



can't wait to wear this skirt as a dress ... vintage silk top: thrifted // skirt: thrifted // belt: flea market // sandals: h&m // bag: flea market // vintage necklace: flea market...

... there's a little story behind my so called  jungle skirt ... some weeks ago i found it at the local oxfam thrift store and fell in love with it's wild wild print.  but when i noticed it's size, i didn't even tried it on (far tooooo big). for normal i don't care about the sizes of vintage and thrift clothes. when i like a piece and it looks like it could fit me somehow, i take it to the changing room. this time i did not. and everything was fine. 
some days after i came across this fashionable lady (cherryhumbug)  wearing a fabulous vintage shirt with a quite similar print and colour. after i saw this amazingly styled jungle/tiger-blouse i went totally nuts... i wanted this skirt from oxfam so much. it took three more days, till i had the chance to leave work earlier and spent a little visit to the store. as you can see in the photos, i was delightful to get my hands on it.

You're lucky the skirt was still there! It seems when I regret leaving something behind I go back and some other lucky soul has snatched it up! :) I like the bright lipstick!

it's an amazing jungle skirt, you look stylish and I like that pose with your leg up :-) you can model your clothes so well! I love all of your skirts...I bought a pleated pokka dot skirt last week and still deciding if I should shorten it or leave it like your jungle skirt.
