This past Labor Weekend was a blast!! Hubby and I headed into San Francisco to the Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) to experience the Andy Warhol—From A to B and Back Again exhibit as this was the very last weekend for it. We saw the exhibit when it opened this past May 2019 and then attended the Andy Warhol party at SFMOMA but seeing his work is very inspiring and we really enjoy it so we were excited to see it all one last time.
Get ready to stand out in a crowd!! The Pop-Art-Princess skirt from Pigtails and Pirates embodies the 1950s pop art movement with imagery from advertisements, comic books, and the kitschy elements of cultural life. When I first saw this skirt all I could think was Andy Warhol and Roy Liechtenstein’s influence are all here in this one fabulous skirt…. Must have it!!
As many of you know I am no stranger to color…. The brighter and bolder the better. Wearing bright and colorful outfits gives me so much energy and I feel so vibrant and full of life!! I was so excited to receive this fabulous skirt and could not wait to do a photoshoot in it. I knew I wanted to have a vintage Polaroid camera (thank you my hubby Gary) as my prop and thought Andy Warhol would have liked that too and then we had this amazing vintage bright yellow Sculptura Donut Phone by Western Electric Company that would be too much fun to use as a prop.
In these pictures taken by my very talented hubby Gary, I am wearing the skirt in an Australian 16 and find it fits my waist nicely and lies perfectly against my curvy hips. I paired it with my simple yet sexy white Doris top from Pinup Girl Clothing and a teal green belt. The skirt does accommodate a light petticoat.
The pattern pops so much and the colors are brilliant. Our set included my hubby’s handy work on the wall clock and our specially painted Godzilla painting from El Gato Gomez. It was great fun shooting the skirt with our cool props. I hope you reach out to Laura; owner of Pigtails and Pirates and not only see what beautiful dresses and outfits she makes but you can also ask her about custom orders too (she makes my dresses to fit me with the top half larger in size to the waist/skirt). Laura is so creative with her color combos and fabrics. Right now on the Pigtails and Pirates website is a delicious looking Sushi print dress, Beauty and the Beast stunner and so much more, I can’t wait to hear which your favorites are!!
