The billowing wonder of a mainsail unfurls in full splendour -
hits Toronto, Canada,
enveloping the city in its golden glow
eliciting gasps of awe and amazement, of
JOY, FREAKISHNESS, and PRIDE
"Fly High Almighty Skirt" we cry!

Go! G O N O W!!
Lovely Megan has also posted photos of the embellishment she added to the FYS (freakish yellow skirt) and a closeup of all the other embellishments to date, here. Crazy quilt sail, FLY, we command thee. How much higher she goes with your additions. Thanks, Megan, and thanks to everyone for your ongoing support of the FYS. If you would like to style the FYS, be sure to email Shelley at Forest City Fashionista to be put on the flight schedule.
And now in other news...
My Checkered Past
This is for Shiny T Tuesday, Jane George's link-up at Flight Platform Living. Here's the checked outfit I wore on an inspiration walk last week, hence the sub-title, My Checkered Past, as my interpretation of the Shiny T Tuesday theme on dressing square. I think these are all the checks I own.
I'm sure you've all seen poses like this in high fashion magazines, at art openings, in swanky hotel lobbies, or in ladies' rooms. But this is an example of how I stand every day, for example, whilst I wait for the barista to prepare my coffee or stand in the check-out line at the supermarket. Usually I carry two compact mirrors with me so I don't have to look down at all. The schtar quality I ooze out so naturally wherever I go ensures that I always have plenty of free space around me, even in the most crowded of situations.
I like the high waist and wide legs of these pants. They are made of light cotton and are slightly large, which makes them comfy summer wear. And the turned up collar is deliciously annoying.
- blue-and-white-checked palazzo pants, thrifted
- blue plaid shirt with front ruffle, thrifted, Diesel
- platform sandals, thrifted
See you at Jane George's. How do you dress square? I look forward to seeing what you've got!
And I look forward to seeing how YOU style the FYS.
PS - Thanks for all your laundering tips for my rockstar pants and my Sharpied T-shirt!
