Purple Ostrich

Feathers are a weakness for me and this skirt really put me over the feather obsession edge!  I have collected a few feather pieces over the past little while but finding a really great feather skirt was quite the challenge.  The only feather skirts I could find were either really, really short or were made of thick feathers that didn't have too much give or bend to them making it too hard to move or sit in the skirt.  This skirt is perfect and the minute I saw it online I knew it was the one for me!!! The ostrich feathers are so unique as I don't think I have ever seen anything made with ostrich feathers before and they are the most softest feather I have ever touched.  The bonus is I love color and I feel like it was made just for me! This skirt was available in black too but the details of the gorgeous feathers were lost on the dark color.  The movement of the feathers on this skirt are beautiful and it's like they dance in the wind.  As you know I could never just pair this skirt with black and so I added some more color and my stunning Mary Frances handbag.  I think this bag is the perfect accessory for my outfit with the multicolored silky fabric and beads bringing all the colors of the rainbow together! 

 

Do you like feathers in fashion?

That skirt is amazing! It looks like so much fun to wear, too. I think if I had that on I would literally never stop touching it and making it sway while I walked. Beautifully distracting! xo, Michelle neonrattail.com

You pull off feathers so well :) I love the skirt-it's so glam and particulary how you've teamed it with yellow!

wow!! you really know how to rock a feather skirt! which is not easy btw ;) well done! <3 xx http://stylebydeb.com

Smart idea for not pairing the skirt with a black top. The purple and yellow work well together and helps to make the feathers stand out more. :-) Pretty necklace too!

Dearest Rebecca, congrats that you were able to find this awesome feather skirt!

I'm glad you found the perfect feathered skirt - and I have to agree - it is perfect! The color is so glamorous and reminds me of royalty. Paired with yellow it looks even more rich and eye catching. What a glorious combination! And your hat adds the perfect touch. <3 katsfashionfix.blogspot.com

Oh my i super love that skirt and that bag. they are so fabulous. I agree about the skirt if in black color, cannot see the beauty of the feather and the soft movements. I like that you pair it with yellow top. You look lovely as usual. xo Sam http://fabulouspetite.blogspot.com
