If something is even slightly kooky or kitschy, there's a good chance it'll pique my interest. In the case of this cigarette-themed skirt from Shawna Lay Designs... I immediately became obsessed. I'm not a smoker (nor do I condone it... even though I'm currently dating one), but this design beautifully captures the 1950's Hollywood glamour of it all. Shawna makes some really incredible pieces and does a lot of custom work, and this skirt has quickly become one of my absolute favorite pieces.
Although Shawna initially displayed this skirt in a beautiful cyan, I opted to go for black, as I think it makes it a bit more versatile. The skirt itself is made of cotton sateen, which is a really nice choice in terms of quality and isn't too heavy for the hotter months. I love the little pops of red and butter yellow in the design, so though I could easily wear this skirt with another neutral, I have more colorful options for separates as well. Shawna offers custom waist and length measurements as well, so this skirt is perfectly suited for me. She'll also work with you on a totally custom idea, so be sure to message her if you're feeling creative!

I'm currently recovering from my show (we had a sold out closing weekend, which was great) – I'll miss doing Heathers, but my body needs a break! Hope you have a great start to your week!
