Now Watch Me Whip

Pin It

The skater in me never leaves and neither does my love of movement in clothing. Costume was transformative for me on the ice. Skirts felt like wings and sparkle made me do just that. But while tulle and sequins may not qualify as everyday wear, I still enjoy when my dresses twirl and my shoes get air.

That must’ve been what Free People had in mind when they made this dress. It just wasn’t meant to be worn sitting still. It’s deceptively full because of the draped fabric and when it spins out you really get the full effect.


Aside from the dark color, I upped the fall appeal of this outfit by adding my favorite pair of Jean-Michel Cazabat boots. Fringe is the easiest way to achieve the ankle shimmy, which turns even the simplest stroll into a dance.


 Watch me, watch me.
