A Fringed Flirtation



 “The greatest feminists have also been the greatest lovers. I'm thinking not only of Mary Wollstonecraft and her daughter Mary Shelley, but of Anais Nin, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and of course Sappho. You cannot divide creative juices from human juices. And as long as juicy women are equated with bad women, we will err on the side of being bad.”  
Erica Jong, via 1

The Outfit:
Black T-shirt: very old from H&M
 Pink Beaded Fringe Skirt: very old from a sale at The Vestry
Pink Strappy High Heeled Sandals: old from a sale at New Look
Pink Flower Fascinator, & Floral Fan: from Accessorize

  1. Yet another enchanting get away get away.... thank you for putting such beauty into the world.

  2. Oh Emalina, you are the vision of flirtation itself!!! I love the fringe, and I am a sucker for pink, always. Nature photos lovely as always! xoxo Lynn

  3. Emalina, you evokes thoughts of hot nights dancing in San Juan Puerto Rico in the famous Convento Hotel!
    The skirt and the shoes are supper-sexy and so feminine!
    Have a great weekend my dear,

  4. What an engaging, gorgeous vibrancy there is to this alluring outfit. It sings and dances with the passion of a pulsating, vivacious Latin beat and is a resplendent representation of summer itself, a season which so often shares this same kind of energetic passion.

    You really look stunning, my dear gal!

    ♥ Jessica

  5. Gorgeous pinks! There's something kind of Spanish-looking about the skirt. How very flirtatious with your fan you are :)

  6. Ahh, feminine with a kick here, especially with clear heels. And I love the chair under the tree - it's so unexpected yet it fits. Your legs look a mile long. Ms. Jong is a sassy wench - I loved her novel about Fanny Hackabout Jones, the female pirate.

  7. Gorgeous!! Flirty and fun with all the romance, of course. I do love that chair too. The quote is the best. I wholeheartedly agree with it. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. XXOO

  8. Olé!!! que guapa;) i love that look you remind me of a flamenco dancer! you look absolutely beautiful here, what a nice setting with the chair!
    hope you have a great weekend!
    love and kiss,mary

  9. Ooh, sexy señorita in the English countryside! The skirt is fabulous, shows off those long legs of yours a treat, and the shoes are beautiful (not suitable for country walking though!) Such gorgeous sunshiney photos. xxxx

  10. Your inner gypsy is showing! You look delightful in pink!
    Thanks for linking up at the shoe party on 52 Pick-me-up.

  11. So beautiful, adore these pictures. You are so lovely!

  13. You look so sexy in this outfit! Love everything about the skirt and the shoes - their colour and design and the way they look on you.

  14. Oh fabulous! I love that flirty fringed skirt, all Spanish in an English setting. x

  20. Look! A fan! And how well it goes with the juicy outfit. Excellent.

  21. Erica Jong is one of my favorites, and you have reminded me why. You are a vision in the gorgeous pink flower fascinator, the strappy heeled sandals, and the beaded fringe scarf.

    Thank you for linking up to Hat Attack in your beautiful headwear!

  22. LOVE this skirt, and girl, your logs are KILLER!

    1. Oops….legs, not logs. Although your logs are nice as well. Snort.

    2. Given the chance, no telling what I'd do for logs like Emalina's! :D

  23. Jumping back to chime in with my adoration of both the Erica Jong quote and the outstanding juicy energy infused into this post!
