My throat hurts from laughing. With you, obviously.
i'm laughing AT me.
Who's going to mop up all this tea I just splurted all over the keyboard...?
perhaps i can loan you an ikat printed maxi size dishtowel.
LMAO!Even the skirt can't resist the Oona Booty. It's a force of nature.I must admit, my first thought was "how high is the slit?" :D
i didn't even consider that's where peeps would go... god it looks like one, doesn't it...
LOL! Oh, I just died laughing. You crack me up :)
muahahaa i love you, lovely oona!
LOLLLL ohmygod :D I LOVE it. With the plaid, are you kidding?! I love this outfit. From the front.
OMG! That's awesome! You're a braver soul than me to post this one. I also expected a High Slit! So funny!
Just realizing I've never commented on your site before.... Hoping my sarcasm isn't misread. I love it. From the back, too. :)
oh i got it. now don't you go and lie about the back and ruin it. that back is an abomination.
Didn't twig, till you mentioned it!!........So what's the plan now?By the way you did a fab job and it looks great.Claire :}
the plan?um....shove it in the closet for awhile?use it for kindling?a nice throw?
I'm still laughing! :)
You get the trophy for blog comedy. For the next 10 years.
HA! does the trophy come in the form of a heavyweight belt? all blingy and flashy and totally not subtle? i would humbly wear it.
LMAOOOOOO!! AHAHAHA! I thought the big flower on one of my cheeks in my Sew Weekly dress was bad!
I-can't-breathe-I'm-laughing-so-hard. The Look on your face got me.
hehe :) it's a really cute skirt anyway!! Love it Oona, thanks for the laugh.
Oh my word. But wow, I love this fabric... gorgeous!! I hope you still wear it, ass vortex or not. I was also looking for a slit in the back.
You are awesome :)
The same thing happened to me! Check it: http://www.flickr.com/photos/lindsaypindsay/6034354508/in/set-72157626373185018.I wore it anyway. To a wedding. I figured they just further showcased my rockin ass.
yours is way less upsetting! what a pretty dress-- i'm glad you didn't have to shop on your trip :)
LOL! But if it makes you feel any better, been there, done that. That whole pattern placement thing can be a real bitch sometimes.
This is stand up comedy with front row seats. The crack that swallowed ikat...I think there's a movie plot or commercial tagline in there somewhere. Love the maxi skirt, Oona. Devoured motifs and all ;-)
i believe i shall call it Crackatoa.
ROFLMAO! Oooh... that's just... well... it's... um... dang. That's some mighty unfortunate pattern placement. At least you've got enough fabric to make a mini skirt or something. LOL
Oh, I am so sorry, Oona, but I have just about killed myself laughing at the unfortunate Ikat placement. Oh, my!! I have no doubt that this fabulous skirt will be recreated into something that knocks our socks off (not like this version didn't, but perhaps not in the way you had hoped? LOL!)
i might have to go with clio-- chop it in half and begin again. thank god for blog pictures.
OONA, UNCLENCH!!!!!!heheheheh I'm 12.I can't say I've done this sort of thing with sewing, but I'm FANTASTIC at getting small circular foodstains riiiiiiiiight on the nippular area of my tops. It's like my superpower.
I KNOW RIGHT?!!!! and it's not even in my ass! i bet simon loves your superpower.
Poor Oona. Is that skirt really getting eaten up? This might sound old-fashion, but a slip might help that out. What are you going to do?
you know, this might be where the thong gets us all in the end. pun intended. maybe i'll try a slip. and some heavy interfacing. an iron hoop skirt.
That is some awesome pattern placement!
YOU completely crack me up!
it takes a brave and special woman to share that with the world and be good humored enough to laugh about it--i LOVE it.
Bahahhahahah! But how can the skirt resist, it's such a nice butt, the skirt just wants to be close to you! Don't hurt the skirt's feelings, Oona, it's might react badly. strugglesewsastraightseam.wordpress.com
good lord, if this is it being sweet, i'd hate to see it behaving badly.
Oh you cheeky girl, thanks for the laugh.
You just gave me my first deep chuckle of the day. I do love that fabric!
Ass pants! You still look like a fox x
I thought they were culottes! HaHa!! I'd still wear it - I mean, what the hell - sometimes an ass just has to be a vortex... Plus that fabric is AWESOME!
Ok, laughing SO hard over here. That was awesome.
HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!Although, that skirt is so ridiculously awesome, I'd probably wear it anyway. And also CAN YOU BLAME THE SKIRT FOR WANTING TO HUG ON YOUR ASS? For serious!
I love the ikat print! Ass diamonds or not :P
I was also expecting a slit, but this is unfortunate. A prime example of why I tend to avoid prints!
HAHAHAHA! I can't see it from my house. Hope that consoles you.
i believe you can probably see this from jupiter.
hehe! It's a pretty print though. Try a nice stiff drink and see if that helps with the unfortunately placed diamonds problem--I promise it will. ;) rofl.
a stiff drink helps with ANYTHING.
I just choked I was laughing so hard - sorry! I wanna know what Ruggy's reaction was!
he looked at the pictures and couldn't stop laughing. exactly what i hoped for.
this is why I read your blog! oona, you seriously crack me up!
Hehe! Of course, it's your description that tops it all... I love the first photo, with the flower in your face, too.Re: Illuminating blog posts:http://marmota-b.blogspot.com/2012/03/creating-outfit-for-vintage-blouse-and.html
that sweater is magical!
I've always thought you were hilarious, but this may top everything else. By the way... I don't know what kind of squats you're doing but my clothes have never hugged and thanked me like that.
i've been squatting down to get the rye whiskey off the bottom shelf of the bar cart nightly.
Just fart and it;ll pop right out! ;) hahahahaha
Hahaha, how funny! :D
hahaha!!! Damn prints and their ass-biggery!!
ass-biggery, i love it!
Love it!!! Wear it proudly. Restyle it (after several wearings) or you can send it to me. LOL
i just might.
Thanks for making me laugh today! And for being so brave to post it ;)
This print is definitely unique and the position of the diamonds makes it quite the humourous item:) Funny post hee hee.
Hooo hooo! That is too funny! Maybe it's time for a refashion? But I think you have the confidence to pull it off!
I looked at the first pic and thought, what could be wrong its pretty, love the fabric. Then I saw the last pic and I laughed, not at you but with you as a woman with a shapely behind as well, I know what you are saying.
but please, you MUST laugh at me. it makes all the hard work on this fail worthwhile!(and when you have bootays like ours, you must have a fail every once in a while. else all the bootay-less gals would rise up and come at us with daggers and such.)
Holy crap holy crap holy crap!!!!!!! That's truly AMAZING.If I was you, I'd rip the waistband off, resize it to fit above my chest (maybe slap a little elastic in the back), belt it at the waist, and wear it as a strapless dress! That would probably be enough to change up the, ahem, weird pattern placement. I've restyled weird elasticized maxi skirts into summer party dresses a few times and it's SUPER satisfying.
That's an awesome idea, you can't wear it like that - I won't let you. Beautiful fabric. Thanks for the best belly laugh of the week.
you are hilarious. I love this whole outfit - the color, the patterns, the combination of the two. Perfect!
Hahahahaa TOTAL GENIUS! And totally hot. Flaunt those diamond butt cheeks.
OK, I say flaunt it! I can totally understand why you won't wear this, but I still think it's a great piece. The diamond placement is charming. And, in fact, if you just raised the diamonds up a bit, they'd give you artificial perky-bum.
i thankya truly for taking the time to comment, i love a good conversation-- and hope you know my thanks are always implied if not always written!
