The Wandering Yellow Skirt

May 7, 2014


The Wandering Yellow skirt is an object d’art. It was put into circulation by Melanie from Bag and a Beret, and so it started its way around the world from Montreal, stopping around the US, Down Under and now had a little stroll around the UK. Every stop it makes, it gains a new marking, added by its latest wearer.

It has now landed on my doorstep and I had to do something with it, namely add my little bit and wear it in my own way. I can’t wait to see it when it’s fully covered in markings and designs added by other female bloggers. It will be a powerful symbol of female union and creativity, in my opinion.

All the bits and pieces added so far… including mine:

A piece of salted cod, something that’s very Portuguese, just like me!


The skirt will now be on its way over to the Netherlands, for its next stop around the world. I am grateful to have been part of this fantastic blogger/feminine/ artistic movement!

    Wonderful styling of the TYS, and it’s good to see close ups of all the additions by each of its wearers.
    Has it done in the UK now? I thought there were some other UK bloggers who were expecting to get it, but I know Shelley is keeping an eye on the schedule! xxx

    Just lovely. And your codfish looks like a strapless dress, by the way. How cool is that?! You have accessorized to perfection – the tee, gloves, shoes, and necklace.

      Haha, I never thought of it like that!

    Wow, this is EXACTLY what I needed to see today – you, shining in the freakish thing. Truly glowing. Thank you SO MUCH for adding your huge piece of sparkle and fish to this project. The white of the codpiece is brilliant against the yellow. Again, I’m am amazed by what goes on when this thing gets into the hands of amazing women. Sara, you’re a schtar!!! Thanks again. Hugs. Your illustrations are always genius.

    Oh, you do lovely in the magical yellow skirt! And! The skirt fits you fabulously! On me, it was miles too long, LOL. Funny, from a distance, the cod tail looks remarkably like a dress silhouette..how fitting!

    • Reply Mrs D May 12, 2014 at 09:09

      I had to add the towering flatform shoes… otherwise it would have been dragging on the floor! x

    Oh dear Sara, just awefully big shoes to fill. I have the skirt in my bedroom and an idea is forming. I cannot let fear of disappointing you all, rule me. Have to do my own thing.
    You look fabulous in it.
