Hot Skirt

This black and multi colored skirt is a great way to transition all your fun pop summer tops into fall. Warm yellow, violet, red, lime and turquoise floral on a black background is sure to be a hit! See it at vive la femme this weekend and in Seattle at Pink Ginger shortly thereafter!

Exciting news at Redskew

My newest retail outlet, Pink Ginger, in Seattle, is already nearly sold out of Redskew skirts, and I'm working on getting her some new swatches soon.

I'm wrapping up this week's skirts for vive la femme, where we just got in the CUTEST new line of stylish workwear, Kingley and Posh! Fresia, the owner and designer, did a trunk show at vive on Tuesday and she and I had a blast chatting about design and all that good stuff.

Here is this week's skirt at VLF: a black with white leaf motif ($65), shown with Kingley and Posh Peasant Blouse ($75). Would also be fab with a red patent belt!

Not entirely sure how time passes so quickly!!!! Here we are, nearing the end of July, and I've got another back log of skirts to post about! I'm also working on some one of a kind hand bags and new pieces for fall.

For now, a burst of color and white in which to enjoy the dog days of summer! These skirts most easily go back to a white top, but be daring and pop a coordinating (see notes) or contrasting tank and a denim jacket for a fun look!

Chocolate and white Bandana print skirt, Redskew, $65, Karen Kane eyelet tee, $100. I would also put grass green, cherry red or sunny yellow with this chocolate brown.

Red-orange and white floral skirt, Redskew, $65; Navy Maitai tunic, $35. I do LOVE navy with this intense color, but it many shades of blue work, as well as white or brown.

Yellow and white graphic floral print skirt, Redskew, $65; Karen Kane eyelet blouse, $125. Purple, grey, magenta and cobalt also look hot with this yellow.
