The Return of the Whale
Those of you who have been lurking around the blog for a while will remember back at Easter time, when a sperm whale swam into the Sound of Kerrera, which just happens to be right outside of our house. The ensuing frenzy was something to behold, and like everyone else, I got sucked-up into the frenzy. You may also remember my whale-inspired shopping spree that resulted in its wake. I have been sitting on this skirt for a while (literally), as it has been too cold to really showcase it until just recently. But the time is nigh. Behold, the J. Crew whale skirt, purchased new on Ebay for $10. I know, right?!
Clearly a nod to the American prep roots of the J Crew brand, this skirt is fun. I am drawn to these prep pieces, not because I want to display my belonging to some socioeconomic tribe, but because they are colourful and fun. As I get older, I grow weary of all the dark and gloomy clothes out there that just take themselves so gosh darn seriously. Plus, this skirt has animals on it. As you know, I'm big into that. Goodness knows it is a slippery slope. When I start appearing on the blog in a sweatsuit with a big cat printed on it in sequins, that is a cry for help, and perhaps someone might please intervene...
