I"m just nuts about Dita's skirt.
If anyone knows me personally, then they are aware of how much I adore squirrels. Fall is a time for falling leaves, colder nights and yes, squirrels. They are always in my backyard playing and hiding their nuts in my planters. My kitties love to watch them from the windows, they delight them when they run from rooftop to rooftop chasing each other , they are so sweet.
When I saw what Dita Von Teese wore to the Vintage Fashion Expo in Los Angeles, it made me so minwendam( happy). She wore a fun applique squirrel skirt, it was darling on her. The skirt is designed by Dolce Gabbana - a blue brocade pencil skirt with two large applique squirrels holding their nuts towards each other, while resting on a tree branch. I just love her skirt! I found a skirt like Dita's ,but this one was shorter and had an a-line cut. The ebay seller wanted $ 2,399 with $5.00 shipping,no one bought this skirt however, it was reported lost. Oh , how sad. I went online to the Dolce Gabbana website and found a black blouse with a huge squirrel on the chest, it has sold out too.
Well, I guess after all these years, squirrels are trendy. I must find all my vintage squirrel pins and wear them with my 1950s 49er jacket, the perfect fall look for me. I try not to be too trendy. Here's Dita at her vintage booth, she has lovely things.
