One Teal Skirt


A couple of months ago my sister went to the flea market and brought me back this lovely Shaheen to sell in my Etsy shop. I took one look at it and was pretty sure it was not going to be for sale any time soon! I was in love with the shape, the colors, the design....need I go on?!

I needed though something to wear under it. I decided to look for a pencil skirt in a blue or green that would compliment the wonderful lime green, aqua and teal in the dress. I found a teal skirt at Ross for only $10.99!! If your Ross is like mine it is slim pickens when it comes to skirts, so to find this one - the perfect color, perfect length for my Shaheen and my size was a remarkable feat!

Needless to say, I'm very pleased with my outfit. But the real reason of this post is that I never realized what a staple a teal skirt is to a gal's closet. I'm selling a number of dead stock nylon tops from the 1960's and needed a skirt to model with them. I decided on this teal skirt because of the fit on the mannequin. (And frankly I'm tired of always using my black skirt for this purpose.) I was thinking the teal skirt might only compliment a couple of the colors of the tops. But to my surprise I LOVED it with each and every color. Scroll down and see what you think!!
