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

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

    Love how the grey ribbon echoes the grey shoes! Sorry that you got pooped on – that happened to my mom once and ever since I wonder when it's my turn…

    I love the skirt, I'm sure the original buyer had pretty woman in mind…

  7. Jenni says: September 29, 20108:16 pm

    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.

  8. MituKatie says: September 29, 20108:17 pm

  16. Sarah K. says: September 29, 20109:23 pm

    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.

  17. Jade Sheldon says: September 29, 20109:27 pm

    Probably one of my favorite outfits I have ever seen on you!

    A la "Pretty Woman"

  18. Destined For Now says: September 29, 20109:36 pm

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

  19. Yesi Jukebox says: September 29, 20109:57 pm

    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 πŸ˜‰

  20. Natalya's Closet says: September 29, 201010:14 pm

    I agree, this definitely shouts "Pretty Woman". Love it! XOXO, Natalya

    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!)


  26. Julia says: September 29, 201011:12 pm

    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?

  27. honigmuffin says: September 29, 201011:16 pm

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

  28. Bia says: September 29, 201011:34 pm

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

  29. elaine says: September 29, 201011:56 pm

    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.

  30. Pamela says: September 30, 201012:36 am

    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™‚


  31. Kate Maggie says: September 30, 201012:39 am

    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

  32. libys11 says: September 30, 20101:08 am

    so dainty and feminine!!! you always pull off these outfits!! πŸ˜€

  40. Tiffany* says: September 30, 201012:23 pm

    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™‚


    Is that a tattoo under you arm I see? Love!

  41. Runway Hippie says: September 30, 201012:42 pm

    Um, that skirt is like the same exact color and print as the dress in Pretty Woman! Poop or no poop, still a great find!



  42. Sal says: September 30, 20101:28 pm

    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!
