Novelty Print Statement Skirt
Vintage novelty print statement skirts are big business and can sell for large amounts of money depending on the print and the year of the skirt.
I sold this one within five minutes of listing it in my Etsy shop…
A 1950s one-of-a-kind handmade piece with an image of an artist’s studio in Paris.
I recently discovered another novelty print statement skirt when thrifting, can you tell how excited I was to find it?
It really is like wearing a piece of art.
I think the image depicted is Aztec.
You can’t really see here but it has sequins on it as well.
It reminds me of another novelty print statement skirt I own that I love…
I had every intention of selling this piece in my shop until I tried it on and then just like Britney…
Two other pencil skirts came out of my closet and made room for this comfortable full flare skirt.
With all the thrifting I do for my shop my wardrobe is constantly changing. A bit like the weather around here…last week it was snowing, today it was 15 C and sunny and now tonight there are thunderstorms and rain. A bit like my style. Tonight I’m in jeans, tee and a hoodie, tomorrow I’ll be wearing a faux leather asymmetrical skirt, boots and a classic sweater and the next day I’ll probably be wearing a vintage maxi dress. My style is all over the place which isn’t ideal for personal branding but it is perfect for my creative brain. It keeps things interesting right? A large part of the diversity of my wardrobe is due to purchasing items secondhand. Shopping thrift stretches my style creativity. It is an opportunity to try out new ideas without breaking the bank.
I know I tend to repeat myself but honestly if I can get one more person to consider buying secondhand over retail it is small step in the right direction for the environment.
