Starlet or Streetwalker?

I have a secret (and slightly embarrassing) love of E!'s show Fashion Police--its funny and informative. And they have a short segment called Starlet or Streetwalker during which the co-hosts have to determine whether the girl in the picture (with the blurred-out head) is a starlet or a streetwalker. Recently my thoughts turned to this segment as I was considering the latest sewing project I undertook:


I sewed it and designed those black "trees" myself. But now I find myself asking, do I dare wear a bright pink skirt out in public (it is brighter than the picture here implies)? And if so, can I accomplish said wearing without looking like a streetwalker? I am entirely undecided. But, I am still loving this whole sewing phase I'm going through.

I love it! I say wear it! If you are worried maybe you could wear a dark shirt with it to tone it down. Of course, you are talking to someone that is currently wearing her "nice" sweat pants...maybe you shouldn't listen to me :)

Love the skirt! I think it depends on what you wear with it. If it's a hot pink tube top, you might be called a streetwalker. However a black one would help tone it down a little! Seriously, you have great taste and I'm sure your outfit will be so cute! I'm so impressed! Did you learn how to do a zipper yet? Are you ready to come teach me?

Thanks for the confidence everyone. I'll let you know when/if I wear it.

Jen--no zipper yet! I'm doing Pajama bottoms now.
