Flair for Flare

I seem to have a 'thing' [technical term] for flared skirts.  I have many.   I also have a penchant [oooh] for photographing these skirts in 'action'.
...I am so sure regular readers/viewers mutter; "okayyyy, we get it.  You like photographing the skirt flaring.  Enough already."

Oh but... I have a knack for photographing flare... and when one is good at something, one must do it often.  And with flair.  Yes?




....and just in case anyone is interested, this skirt is for sale now.
I mean... how many flared skirts exactly the same as above except for brand and colour, can a gal have? huh? aherm*9*cough.  Seriously.

[By the way, have you tried saying the title of this post fast??   And I have updated the previous post, more pics]

wearing:
flared coral skirt * yellow top (gee. behold the obvious being stated) * old and I mean old black denim sunflower clogs.  I have had these for 15 years! * mirrored lucite wayfarers

You really do have a flair for flares. The colours in this post are sensational, my dear Dusk and I'm loving the gaily adorned shoes. I'm missing summer already. xxx

I think you're a mind reader. Yesterday as I was perusing your blog, I was admiring the all-black flamenco (practise?) outfit, and I was thinking, "my goodness I LOVE the way she takes pictures of her skirts flying up like that! Must ask her how she captures the moment so precisely and beautifully!" - because the cherry blossom skirt twirling pictures are still resonating with me. I love flared skirts, too! There's something so intrinsically feminine about them. Not such a good idea to wear them on windy days, though... I've had the wind-up-my-flared-skirt problem far too many times!

That is indeed a lovely skirt! I have a penchant for maxi flares myself, so I completely understand where you're coming from!
I love the combination of vibrant colours.

Dusk, I'm so happy you put your comments on again. I did come and visit, but it's not the same if I can't speak to you!
I'm also preparing an answer to the your question from yesterday (no, not why she's holding a rabbit, you figured that out yourself)...
But back to you: Flared skirt and colours look GREAT on you. And how quirky are these Miu Mius!?!

I can see the flare and understand the flair. :) Agreed, please do it more often. The pink skirted flare is forever stamped on my mind it is so beautiful. :)

Fashion Butter said...

I am so glad you turned these back on!

Anway, I am trying to embrace this silhouette again after years of being wrpaped up in pencil skirts. We will see how successful I will be. : ) It looks so good on you.

Of course I love your flairing photographs ;) and goodness, how do you maintain that perfect body??? I'm green with envy ;)

Wow, you look great in those pictures. You could easily be a bollywood actress :). Especially, I feel you have a very good body, and I like your yellow top as well.
