This is my skirt.
This is my skirt on crinoline.
This is my skirt on two crinolines.
I think it's no secret, my obsession with the crinoline, but one just doesn't cut it anymore. Recently I tracked down a classified ad in our local paper advertising square dancing clothes. It was just as I expected; an older lady was selling off her 1980s calico dresses. However, as I had hoped, she did have one of these fabulous chiffon crinolines and a pair of white ruffled panties (which I'm too much of a lady to show you). I also bought this aqua tiered skirt from her, and it came with a matching peasant blouse. When I wore that complete outfit last week, my husband asked if I had a good day stomping grapes.
The top photo is how you'll find me most days this summer when I'm playing around the house, skirt and tee shirt. But if you follow the progression of my smile down those four photos, I think I should try doing chores in two crinolines from now on!
Footnote: If you're wondering about my tank top, it's from Carmen Lee and the Tomorrow River Two. She's a local honky tonk/rockabilly singer that has a heart of gold!
