The Circus Has Come to Town

In another Swap & Sell purchase, I picked up a skirt I had been eyeing for months. My husband used to be a huge unicycle enthusiast (even taught a few lessons because he was so good) and loved penny farthings. When I spotted the Strongman Skirt from RockSteady, I wanted it, but it was a little out of my budget.

Thankfully, someone on a Swap & Sell was selling it for less so I bought it right away. It was my first item from Rock Steady and the quality is about the same as I would expect from Hell Bunny or Sourpuss, etc.

The skirt has a bit of stretch to it. I’ve found that with this polyester/rayon/spandex blend, it hugs the curves but also allows for a bit of movement without fear of ripping anything.

I love the pattern and the kick pleats added around the skirt. I paired it with my favorite short sleeve turtle neck and some seamed stockings to really vintage the look up.

Overall, I think this skirt was a great purchase but I’m not sure where I’d wear this skirt yet. Hopefully, my husband and I will find ourselves at a circus or La Nouba and I’ll have a reason to wear this beauty out.
