Corduroy Ain’t Just A Book

When I started babysitting a two and four year old last year, I noticed the eldest was wearing corduroy pants. Hmph, I thought, corduroy must be coming back in. Something I remember wearing fondly when I was about the same age as the child who now wore them, had literally disappeared from my youth. When I told a friend about this discovery, she argued that corduroy was *always* in style with children’s clothes, but I didn’t believe that. Where was corduroy for that period of 10-20 years of my life? Well, I should have held my tongue because a quick trip to Uniqlo and an observance among Parisian street style made me realize that corduroy is indeed back, and this time it ain’t just a children’s book.

So I probably should explain who/what Corduroy is if you don’t know! Corduroy is a children’s book about a toy bear who has an adventure in a department store one night. I don’t want to ruin it because it’s a darling children’s story. Corduroy was a big part of my childhood: the book and the fabric!

Anyway…this skirt was exactly what I wanted. I wasn’t searching for anything corduroy, but rather this exact shade of green in an outfit. I was driving myself mad looking for the right shade of jewel green until I made an impromptu stop at Uniqlo. This skirt is a tad bit longer than I’d like, but I really dig midi skirts anyway so this is no big deal! The color is really what made me purchase the skirt. It is such a beautiful shade for any skin color with its jewel tone! I paired it with my new beige sweater from my collaboration with Zaful, and the result was lovely. My hat is a custom design from Halo Mimi, a local New Orleans-based designer. I feel like my outfit here matches the falling leaves and shades of autumn 🙂

By the way, can I mention how AWESOME Uniqlo is? Lots of good basic parts of a wardrobe in several colors…it’s heaven, really. I’ve only been in NYC and here. I definitely recommend the store for creating a basic wardrobe that works with any piece.

I feel like I’ve made a full circle back to my childhood clothing. Corduroy, overalls, crop tops, chokers…obviously the 90s are super popular right now, don’t you agree?
