Outfit: To navigate is necessary


I made this skirt last year for my birthday. I was super lucky to score this vintage cotton that had the print going in a circle --obviously intended for sewing a circle skirt. It was a rare find and I was very happy to get it. I spotted a skirt made out of the same print (although in different colorway) in one of my 1970s/1980s Burdas so that dates it to back then. What I bought turned out to be three half-circle pieces that were hacked badly on one side. It took some fiddling but I was able to match the print nicely and make this rather full skirt! I love the colorful boats cruising on the water, with seagulls floating in the air above them. I have a thing for sailing-related prints and fashions. As of late, I also have a thing for sailing itself, in the literal sense but I also like to use it as a metaphor. You know, in my head, for personal associations. So, when I spotted the Handful of Magic necklace, one of the new pieces in Good Looking Objects' recent collection, I immediatelly thought of the Rose of the Winds. Surely, the star in the palm of the hand could be seen as a spark of magic but to me it said: to navigate is necessary. As I find myself in a moment of life where I am indeed starting to navigate and make my way in the world, I like to think of this necklace both as a reminder of my aims and as a talisman to aid me in achieving them. It is a thoroughly magical necklace after all!

I'm wearing a skirt I made from thrifted vintage cotton, vintage blouse, Good Looking Objects neckace, old backpack (similar style), old flats (similar), thrifted hat (similar).
