Dressed for: Swish

This maxi skirt has an irresistible swish whenever I move. The fabric panels and bouncy knit material mean it is a cascade of movement unless I’m standing stock still. It might just be my most fun-to-wear garment!

The knit moto was nabbed at our recent neighborhood-wide garage sale, at which I met a neighbor who is my size and has my exact taste. It was both thrilling and a little unnerving. Mostly thrilling, though, as she’s a retired MN Rollergirl.

    I tried on a jacket like that yesterday (it was striped) and I was so confused about the zipper/collar. It looked fine on the hanger, but I found it weird on.

    It looks great on you though! I guess you can only zip it up so far?

    Woohoo, support your local roller derby! Love that skirt; I’ve been on the hunt for a similar one, but I am (way too) picky.

    I love this outfit! It may be the wrong time of year, but an insomniac sales pick on knit motos, preferably in non-polyester fabrics, would be fantastic anytime you fancy doing it!

    Ugh, you look fantastic. I have a similar knit moto jacket, except in black, and I love it. Maybe it’s time to hijack one of your looks! Muahaha!

    Oh this is so lovely!! Really breath-taking. I would want everything but it will not look as good on me as it does on you. You have curves and a waist. Which is what you need that for this look.
    I am broad shouldered, not much waist, no hips and no bum. So I would look like a stick in this. Never mind, we all have to dress differently.
    What a great skirt and what a good choice to wear that bright blue jacket with it.
    My compliments.
