Another new thing: this skirt I got in New Orleans. It was a complete impulse-buy; Mike and I were walking around the city when we passed the Wild Life Reserve on St. Charles Avenue, and a peek of wax prints through the window was all I needed to go inside.

They had some really gorgeous clothing and this skirt particularly captured my heart, but we weren’t planning on going back to the hotel right away, so I paid and arranged things with the (awesomely accommodating) shopkeeper that I’d pick it up the next day.

And so I did (after falling down the hotel stairs, but that’s a story for another time). And here we are!

I do wish the fabric were matched up a little better at the seam on the side–you can see in the side-view photo up above that the print kind of skips there, like a scratched CD. If I still had my sewing machine, I might take it in on that side just enough to match things up.

Then again, I might not.

  1. This is a gorgeous skirt! I love shopping when I travel– that way I always remember the trip!

    I, too, have fallen down hotel stairs. Loudly. And publicly. I ended up in a fit of giggles because it was so ridiculous. Marble stairs + leather-soled sandals never go together.
