The Yellow Skirt Waves Bye-Bye

While on the last day, the lady bids adieu to her spirited companion - the Yellow Skirt - with a spot of hot chai amongst friends.

Cheers!
Ahh, and here they are now.
The motley crew

Some extra tidbits to notice besides her tie-dyed rainbow t-shirt with added sequins and refashioned teal suede with satin lapel jacket, are the lady's shoes and jewelry.

Elfin boots from e-bay

and necklace made from old earrings

Snow not only arrived for the first time this season, but continued to accumulate as the ladies made their departure from the cafe.   Thus, making the perfect photo op on the final day of Pao's yellow skirtness.

Flashing the Yellow Skirt on a snowy street corner

And finally, we find the lady at her doorstep, looking for keys...
Dear Reader, do you see Vix's sign?!!
Ah well, now we see Pao sitting on the porch.  Perhaps she's waiting for the door to open?
~ this too will pass ~
I'm sure it will all work out fine.


I'm going to be joining the Visibles at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style.
So come on over!

  2. You've done it. The Pao-edition is over and I'm sorry to see it go. I've enjoyed my ride, the glimpse of your snowy town and front door. Now you are not just in a painting, you're in a real live place with friends and coffee shops. Your boots (fab I might add) really do touch the ground.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this post!!!!!! Sending much, much love. XXOO

  4. What a ride! I'm so happy you could play with the skirt for a while, Pao. I've enjoyed seeing her on her travels with you and in all the awesome stylings you've done. Those boots cannot be real but are surely something from a dream you had. You've really expanded FYS's social circle. I'm so jealous I'm not the one flying all over the world! Hugs, Pao. Thank you!

    1. Oh thanks so much, Anne. I didn't know what to do about it, there was no delete button to start over. You're a genius and a sweet friend! I couldn't think of anything plaid I had...and then...I remembered the flannel shirt/ pants.

  9. Tks for the mention, you wear the skirt extraordinairement! I love it that it went from the Beach of Cuba to the street of Chicago, how cool is that?
    This skirt i tell you has such history, we have to write a book about it, make a press release or something -

  13. What a wonderful story! And the TYS is a great introduction to blogs (like yours) I should be reading more often.

    I love Vix's sign. In fact, I saw one here in Eugene, Oregon - no surprise there.

    1. I actually found the sign in Detroit and brought it back home to Chicago! It looks really antique, but was actually a new replica. I'm coming over to visit you now.
