Greetings, and a pleasant day to you all. Today's offering: a Lilly Pulitzer corduroy "critter' skirt embroidered with wee Scottie dogs. Twee? I suppose it is. Or it could be. I have an unexplained attraction to some of the more unabashedly preppy clothing styles for reasons I have not entirely come to grips with. But I love dogs, and I love clothes, so let's just go with that for the time being.
A piece like this could easily look affected of mumsy, but like so much else in life, it is all down to what you do with it. I like to balance some of these more classic (or perhaps even kitschy) preppy pieces with something that has a bit of an edge. In this case my trusty black nine west boots with the stacked heels, and a super-bright fuchsia blouse. So indeed while the real preppies of the world would undoubtedly look upon my interpretation of this skirt with an undetectable roll of the eyes, a clutch of the (Grandmother's) pearls, and find it all just a bit too poseur arriviste....well...hey. I love dogs. And clothes.
