RED, PISTACHIO GREEN AND SEÑORITAS


I have a new wonderfully full and puffy skirt with lovely señoritas on it. We have a carnival-sort-of- weekend coming up here and I think my new skirt could be quite a suitable part of it!

Somethign sweet happened yesterday; I was walking down the street like this when a 60-something lady in black with huge pearls around her neck stopped me to compliment on my outfit.

My jacket is vintage as you know and the blouse -that's the rather well hidden pistachio green here, hehe- is by Bettie Page Clothing.

...but what I guess you are more interested in is the skirt, which is made for me by BooBooKitty Couture! BooBoo Kitty Couture offers a bespoke made to measure service of vintage inspired clothing with lots of pretty and fun fabrics to choose from (you know I just might have to get myself something with shirtless cowboys on, hmmm...) A ready to wear collection is also being planned.

You can find out more about BooBoo Kitty on Facebook and trough her blog.

What a lovely skirt. You look so summery. I've been eyeing similar fabric and thinking to make some pillowcases of it (that's pretty much only thing I can sew!)

Hej Ulrika,

What an awesome outfit once again:)! I'd like to thank you for your beautiful blog, you are truly an inspiration what it comes to outfits and vintage style. I also like very much your ability to "think outside the box" (if you understand what I mean) what it comes to your jobs etc. I think there should be more people who think that way:)! Klara Vappen!

PS. Thank you also for the discount code to VOH, because of it I have a new pencil skirt, belt and a hair flower in their way to Finland:)!

That skirt is awesome! I'm really a big fan of those patterned skirts, but they are often quite expensive and to find a nice fabric isn't that easy.
