Holiday style on a blustery day

Has it ever gotten windy and blustery in Oregon lately. Whew! We went outside yesterday for a photo shoot and almost got blown away. So much for styling my hair before we went… The wind chill factor was making it several degrees colder than it actually was outside, so we didn’t last long before skedaddling back indoors where we finished the photo shoot in front of the Christmas tree with two fluffy kitties. One of whom seemed to be sitting just far enough away that we never got good photos of her. But the lazy fat cat, Bathsheba – otherwise known as Sheba – cooperated somewhat for some photos.

Not sure how all the fashion bloggers keep going all winter… More indoor photo shoots? Move to a warmer climate? I must know your secrets to winter fashion photo shoots! Hahaha.

Just know that the jacket is faux fur, the cat fur on my cat and satin skirt is real. Which the cats like to shed all over the place so I can be fashionably furry in an animal friendly way. Le sigh. I should appreciate that fact more than I do…

Blossom print skirt – #fashionfriday

Love this wonderful blossom print skirt! The material is a nice high quality satin finish with a half liner underneath. The waist is half elastic which helps it stretch to fit more than one size, but it has a nice side zipper as well. It fit me well – I was a bit concerned it wouldn’t because it was a once size fits all and I have a very small waist size, but the fit was perfect!

The skirt was pretty wrinkled by the time it got here, and I was looking for care instructions on a tag on the clothing, but there were no instructions for care. I cautiously turned the skirt inside out to iron it and put the iron on medium. That didn’t seem to be getting the wrinkles out, so I turned it up just a bit – still ironing on the inside to determine the right temperature to iron the skirt without ruining it. The good news is: once it was ironed, it did not appear to re-wrinkle easily!

I love the colors and pattern on this skirt. It is so feminine and modest without being frumpy. This skirt is just gorgeous! I would highly recommend this product to others buying it.
