Jody and the Technicolor Dream Skirt

In honor of last weekend's Indy 500 (one of the most exciting in recent history), my last three posts were nearly devoid of color beyond my ginger locks, a "caution flag belt," and a pop of pink for Pippa. With the big race over and the arrival of Summer to the Circle City, it only seemed proper to put away the black and white and welcome the sunshine with a circle skirt exploding in color.
I generally march to the beat of my own drum when it comes to personal style. That means I often wear things that others find, well..., let's just say unusual. I'm not trying to be different, I'm just trying to be me. My wardrobe is just another expression of my creativity.
Recently, I've discovered a kindred style spirit in fellow fashion blogger Lauren Blair at Prefer To Be Demure. It was Lauren who introduced me to Chicwish, an online boutique full of pieces that have me dreaming in technicolor. I fell in love with this skirt  the moment I saw it, and when it went on sale I snatched it up. 

I was delighted to find it every bit as vibrant and detailed in person as it looks online. It is also poofy. Very poofy. It definitely fits this short, curvy, "Sir Mix-a Lot sings about my body type" girl differently than it does the statuesque online models on the Chicwish site
I love it anyway. It makes me smile. I already had the perfect pieces to complement it. I couldn't bear to return it. You know what, I'm glad I kept it, poofiness and all. It is a very "Jody" skirt. Thank you, Chicwish for making my technicolor dream skirt a reality. I only wish I wasn't dreaming about so many other Chicwish skirts, too...
Fashion is what you buy; Style is what you do with it!
