Pretty Woman

I had "Pretty Woman" stuck in my head after I purchased this skirt. That's not uncommon, since Roy Orbison has a couple of spots on my playlist, but then I remembered that Miss Vivian Ward wore a brown and white polka dotted dress in the movie. I guess my subconscious made that connection long before I did. I didn't wear it to the races, but I did go to Stone Park Cafe for a delicious brunch with Edward Lewis Bobby.

And then a bird pooped on me and this shall forever be known as the poop skirt.
The end.

Love love,
Keiko Lynn

  1. Apparently very lucky. And definitely stunning. The skirt, not the poop.

  6. Ahahaha, "poop skirt" made me giggle. For the record, aside from the bird poop, this skirt is not at all poopy. Very cute, and I love the blouse.

  17. What a lovely skirt. I love how the blouse comes over it a little bit and the polka dots peek through.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love your shoes and the peek of your tattoo through your shirt. Hopefully you feed into superstitions since they say a bird pooping on you is good luck ;-)

  24. I love this whole outfit! I feel like it's something I could wear, as a curvier woman. The skirt is modest, but so gorgeous and sexy.

    (I hope you don't take that as an insult. I think you're wonderful!)

  25. I heard bird poop signifies good luck! It's an old wives tale, apparently.

    I love your outfit! The contrast between the modest length skirt and then the sheer blouse is so pretty. Is that your side tattoo that I see in the third picture? So cute! Did it hurt?

  26. hahaha.. birdie-poop means lots of luck, I guess.
    nevertheless, you look stunning. I always adore your shoes and bags!

  27. I totally thought of Pretty Woman too when I saw your outfit. I love it!!

  28. My dad used to like to tell the story about how a bird dive bombed my mom. My mom immediately exclaimed.

    "You dirty bird!"

    Just one of those little family stories.

  29. I used to love that song! My mom had a brown polka dot dress around the time of Pretty Woman and as a seven year old, I thought it was the epitome of elegance and all things fancy.

    I don't often leave comments (I'm shy ...), but I wanted to say that I really enjoy your blog's style. Yours was the first blog I came across that wasn't just simply OOTD and "There's a sale!!!!" Did that make sense? Oy, probably not. Anyways, you rock. I think that sums it up pretty nicely.

    If you would check out my blog, I'd appreciate it. :-)

    So sad but funny about the bird pooping on you. I hear it's good luck if a bird poops on you :)
