Riding the Stage
When I wrote about Laurence and Sylvian visiting I mentioned buying a skirt that was similar to the one I wore when out with them, well recently arrived! And I couldn’t wait to wear it!
Whereas my previous skirt featured wagons headed west, this one has stagecoaches. Not only is this another wonderful addition to my western skirt collection, but it also evokes imagery of the of Knott’s Berry Farm and the early days of Disneyland. Knott’s still has a stagecoach you can ride, while the one at Disneyland is long gone (you can view lots of vintage photographs of the attraction, as well as many others, on Daveland).
One thing I really love about the vintage community is how we kind of shop for each other. It’s not uncommon for us to tag one another on Instagram when we see something someone might be interested in, or to text a friend when we are out shopping and see something that seems like it should be in their wardrobe. This skirt is a prime example of that wonderful camaraderie that exists in our community. I might not have come across this skirt if Joanna of Diving Moments hadn’t have spotted it and sent me the link! So thank you very much, Joanna!

That’s too cute! I really like the whole outfit and your hair looks great.
Janey, this is awesome! I love this skirt on you and I’m so thrilled you were able to grab it! Such a great scene and it’s so difficult to find 50s novelty skirts. Love the western theme. Also, I love your blouse too. Lovely outfit and so nice to see you in it:) So fun!
Another gorgeous find and your accessories are spot on! Fabulous!
XOXO N & N

I really enjoy your western themed outfits, and this is quite possibly the best skirt ever!
Holy cow, that brooch is nifty! It’s so detailed. Also this skirt is gorgeous and very full of life. Fantastic outfit!
I love you whole outfit! That skirt is to die for. You look stunning!
It’s super wonderful!!! Oh my gosh, do I love that skirt!!! The red stagecoaches really pop against the desert sand hued background. Fabulous find, Joanna! I love that about our circle, too. It’s so sweet and heartwarming that we’re able to help one another out so much. Plenty of good karma all around in these parts! 🙂
I really like the way you have styled this outfit. Your accessories are great.
I love the whole 1950s Western theme–you pull it off so well!
I really love the blue oxford shirt with this outfit. It looks incredibly preppy chic – good choice!
This is just too adorable! I love the jacket with the skirt, I agree with the other commenter that it’s quite a preppy chic look. How wonderful that you have vintage loving friends you can text about things you spot! P x
