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. hahaha ohhh I'm sorry about the bird! the way you just added that bit in at the end was really funny though.

    it's such a pretty skirt! you have a talent for making vintage look so modern and hip.

  2. 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!)

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  5. 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. πŸ™‚

  6. You certainly are a pretty woman! This outfit is so perfect, all the way from the blouse to the belt to the wonderful skirt! Those shoes are incredible too. I really want a cute and delicate blouse like that – eeep…I need to find one! Hope you're having a great day Keiko. x

  7. Love this outfit. I actually have a very similar vintage skirt I found this summer-only mine is blue. Been looking for a better shirt to wear with it though- love you shirt and that belt is adorable!

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

  8. EVERY time I see brown with white polka dots I think of "Pretty Woman." And someday I'll have that dress, dammit.

    So sorry bird poop has sullied your Vivian Ward skirt!
