My search for a fuller skirt landed me at Prada, in San Francisco. This was perhaps a little over the top. As it turns out, one does not have to go all the way to Prada for that 1950’s look. Deja Pseu has been featuring some styles available for Spring here. And today, as our housewarming party continues, Privilege and the women’s clothing site, Shabby Apple, are giving away a dress. Shabby Apple specializes in dresses, but offer shoes, accessories, even bathing suits. Take a look. I’ll wait right here.
As you can see, I recommend the white, twirlable skirt number above. As my mother would say, “Very good-looking.” Almost commands you to find a bicycle, a basket, some ham, and wend your way to a spring picnic. Preferably on Cape Cod. The dress has two names. One, Cape Cod Shirtdress. The other? Bonheur. French for happiness.
Here’s another dress I like. It’s called, as it turns out, the V.P. Unsurprising then. But you should feel free, if you win, to choose unconstrained by my High WASP preferences. Taste, after all, is not morality.
Tell me a story about the best skirt you ever had. You know the one I mean. I still remember a camel pencil I wore to the office years ago. And my hippie skirts, of which there were probably more than strictly necessary. Winner will be chosen Wednesday, November 17th. Thank you, Shabby Apple. Thank you, Privilege readers.
