Sailaway Circle Skirt

This is why I’m not a model.

Nicole Balch

Sailaway Circle SkirtThat skirt though? That’s the reason I posted the photo (another by Arnold Klein).

It’s on sale, about half off, and it’s amazing. It pairs well with a simple top, tucked in, and with heels (in brown, red, camel, black, whatever). Definitely my new favorite thing to wear.

    i think that you would make a terrific model. I like photos that showcase people being happy and having fun. Definitely better than the too serious face most models wear in catalogues.

      Ditto! They look anorexic and very pi**ed off? Also what is with all of the crotch shots? Even high muckety mucks are posing with their legs akimbo? I am too old for this new world.

    I think you’re on to something Nicole! If I saw your photo in a magazine wearing that skirt, I’d want that skirt! There’s something refreshing about seeing the skirt worn in true life. I would love a magazine that featured everyday folks wearing the clothes. I would order more often!

    If anthropologie used more adorable, happy, non-model models, I would buy their clothes. How can I possibly judge if a skirt would look good on me, when their models are chihuahuas and I am a golden retriever?

      Oh, darn. It wasn’t when I first linked to it. Limited and Old Navy both tend to carry similar, inexpensive tops on a regular basis though, if you’re looking for another option.

    Stop posting photos of your new hair do!!!! (ok, I don’t actually mean that). I am even more tempted to chop off my locks every time I see yours.

    I dare you to stop being so adorable! Btw – that haircut is seriously rad. I’m down with the midi skirt coming back in style. Not sure I can personally pull it off seeing as I’m 5 foot 0, but I love it on others.

    Happy Monday,

    I’d love to see what kind of photos they’d take with you in your light pink, maxi, ballerina-esque skirt! This skirt is cool, but that skirt had me swooning.

    I’m definitely on the “love your hair” bandwagon. So I have to ask – how is the upkeep so far? I’d love to go short, but I’m scared of the maintenance…

    I agree with all the others – your hair is fabulous and it makes me want to chop mine off! But I have another question…where did you find the yellow shirt you’re wearing there? It’s gorgeous!

        just purchase the skirt, and because they did not have my size, they called another store, and they shipped for free, and it was on sale.
