Suspender skirts are fantastic.

Sam and I had a blogging conversation the other day.

Sam: "I write something, then think 'oh. I guess I have to post pictures too.'"

Me: "Thats funny because I post pictures then think 'oh. I guess I have to write something too.'"

So there. I wrote something.

lol, great post.
I'm the same way, the writing is an afterthought, they say a picture is worth a 1000 words though.
I've started following his blog too, it's great to see a straight male dress well, such a rarity.

omg that skirt is so amazing. I'm the same way... I've only now just started writing more with my outfit posts. and, yes, I'm enjoying Sam's blog! I'm trying to keep my eye out for men's looks in the hopes that I can dress my boyfriend : )

that skirt is just fabulous. I just made a suspender skirt and feel that are so stylish and flattering. I feel the same way about posting too. I have all these fabulous pictures I want to share but then feel like I probably should right something to justify the post:D

Minah said...

omg. love that skirt!!!!!!!!! ♥

Kir said...

I do the same as you Solanah. I take pictures, upload them and then sit there for like 10 minutes trying to think of something to say.

I love that skirt. You're write, suspender skirts are fantastic. I need to find one, I keep seeing people wearing them and being jealous. Haha. :)

Is it weird that I get really excited whenever I see that you've posted something new?

Sarah Dee said...

I do the same thing! Pictures are the most important =) Oh and btw I totally love your skirt!


Kelly said...

I have been lurking for a while, but I had to stop and tell you I love love love that skirt. I have been looking for one and it has not been an easy search. This gives me hope. I love your style, you have inspired me to try to be more stylish on an everyday basis, despite how busy my day is. There is always some excuse.

Mel said...

Haha I'm like you! I post pictures then try to think of something interesting to say :) I love your suspendered skirt, I need to make my own soon!

Ivy said...

Not so much on this style but it looks cute on you!

Hi Solanah,

I am a new fan of your fashion, class, glamour and of course your writing! I wanted to know what color your eyes are? Are they green? Pale Greenish-Brown? Hazel perhaps? Mine are a similar shade and pretty pale. I never know what to tell people when they ask what color mine are. THANKS SO MUCH

Solanah said...

Hello Flower Girl :)

My eyes are a dark green, so they often look brown when the light is dull :) So it often surprises people when they see I actually have green eyes!

Kelly-marie said...

I agree with Sarah Dee! Pictures are the most important and yours are always lovely. I heart this outfit, especially the shoes.

Leia Lace said...

Your photos are just so beautiful, can I ask who takes them? The quality is perfect especially the close-ups... LL

Bonita said...

One of my favorite outfits of yours! The blouse and skirt are perfect together!

Plus, I don't think any of us would mind if you just posted pictures -- in fact...maybe you could post some and let US write the captions! That might be fun.

Love reading your blog!

I got your dress yesterday and am wearing it today and hope to take some photos later on. Thanks you so so so much!! It is so comfortable.

Nadine said...

When I imagine that suspender dress on me I get visions of Oktoberfest but on you it's vintage beautiful. LOVE the close up... gorgeous! :)

Casey said...

haha! That conversation was too cute! ;)

Love this outfit! I'm still on the hunt for the perfect suspender skirt (or maybe I'll just break down and make one come fall...). Yours suits you to a T!

Pretty dress :-)

Looking good :-)

The written part of blogging sure doesn't come easy to me. In an ideal world I'd lead my entire life hidden behind a lens.

I always think suspender skirts look so sexy, but feel I'm too well-endowed to wear.
If you're not Solanah (who obviously can pull this off impeccably), can you wear suspender skirts with a large chest? Do you think the fuller blouse works best?
Thoughts on this anyone?

Solanah said...

Leia Lace, thank you! I take these outfit pictures with a tripod :)


Solanah said...

Amy Gail, I think suspenders skirts look great on anyone, but find the right size suspenders can be the hard part.
