shkirting

I had a brain wave this morning while browsing through Anywho.dk. This photograph jumped off of the page; an overdue solution to my wardrobe predicament of having too few skirts and too many shirts. Of course the fashioning of a skirt from a shirt look is not new ground; anyone who has read fashion blogs for at least two or three years will have seen many a shkirt experiment but this is the first version that has really made an impression on me. Likely due to it's resemblance to a nice little camel button up- the sort of skirt that to me in this moment in time would equate to the Holy Grail.

Full credit to the faceless woman photographed, for today I have acted as a complete copycat. Also note that her entire outfit would be perfect for a little do-it-yourself dissection. White shirt as jacket, ho hum ho hum..
