Embroidered


Bought this skirt at the Flea Market on Sunday for $12 lovely dollars. I had to roll the elastic waist band and make it a paper bag skirt because it was too long, but I dont really care either way because the embroidery and pattern on the thing is so extraordinary.

Im going to try to base my entire wardrobe on this skirt. This is the style direction I would like to go in.


Emily Elizabeth Jewelery fern leaf gold bangle, handmade purple rosary, vintage rosary, vintage silver chain, AA tank top, vintage boots, vintage bag, bullet case metal starling skull pendant and vintage skirt.

i thought you might be interested to know about your skirt.

it's hand embroidery from the north of Vietnam. There is an ethnic population in the mountain towns of the north called the H'mong people (also found in China) that embroidery clothing for themselves. It is a VERY time consuming process and once their own clothes start to wear thin, then patch them together to sell clothes to tourists.

it's a beautiful skirt, I have one myself... I picked it up in a town called SAPA in northern vietnam when I was living there.

Gorgeous embroidery! Very south of the border. Love it! AND 12$$ what a steal!

Pretty Pirate said...

What a lovely skirt, you know it's funny you posted this. I have some pants made from the same tribe and they are too baggy on top and the bottom is really flared, I have been wanting to make them into a skirt but cutting the bell portions off and combining them to make a mini. It would look almost exactly like yours when done. Right now I only wear them around the house which is such a pity because of their beauty!

I too am really bored with the whole " I'm so punk rock" look.

sexyinthecity said...

lovely outfit!
the boots are amazing!!

Elizabeth said...

i'm really lovin that skirt. it reminds me of this gorgeous dress i saw on modcloth.

i think the paper bag effect makes it look even better then it would have...not that you need to do much to make it look good!

Sarah said...

Ashley said...

I like the ethnic print of the skirt.

This is really beautiful. The overall colour scheme really compliments you, and I'm not aurprised you want to wear te skirt all the time!
Also, those gorgeous boots are amazing, Where did you find them?
Lovely post. I always enjoy reading yours.

Anyway, I've just finished a project- designing outfits for ten bloggers, inspired by their personal style. You were one of them!
I'll be emailing you a picture and scan of the designs tomorrow, but I only have time to leave a quick comment now. I did a post of all of the designs on my blog, hope you'll take a quick look..

the pattern is great, love the blue and green details

also, though you never seem to talk about religion, it's nice to see it acknowledged within the blogging world, even by wearing a rosary.

Violet said...

Lovely skirt, it's so perfect for this in-between-seasons-time. :)
And I am in love with those shoes.

i dont appreciate you wearing a rosary just for an accessory....it sort of offends me as a christian

repeadedly anon (for my own reasons) said...

^^i agree. i mean, she's thirteen, so she probably doesn't know that what she's doing is deeply offensive toward those who understand what rosary beads are, and she probably doesn't care, but at least the cross around her neck is just a necklace.

but if she's wearing the necklace... just as a fashion accessory... well... that's a little different.
