Architecture of an Outfit: Starry Night Statement Skirt and Neon Buttondown
I’ve always been a fan of the dark, swirly, whirling fantasy of Van Gogh’s Starry Night. I feel like one could follow the swirling wisps of clouds and get mesmerized within minutes, lost in the dark romantic moment above the sleepy mountain town aglow.
This skirt reminds me of that curling, rolling blue and royal majesty of the skies above Van Gogh’s little country village. I’ve had it for close to 12 years now, and despite Husby’s hesitation to it’s vibrance and flamboyance, I could never, ever let it go

I wore it to work and then N and I took Max the Bear to Kona Brewing Company in Hawaii Kai Marina for a wine and snack to unwind after such a long day for the both of us.
Of course, it was a little hard to shoot some outfit shots with a squirmy, over-stimulated Wheaten Terrier, who gets all hyper with every single passerby.
But he’s so cute… it’s hard to hate on his playfulness and stubborn squirminess.
Have you ever found an amazing statement piece that you could see holding on to forever?
