Beetlejuice / Penguin

Vertical striped pants aka Beetlejuice pants are all the rage these days, but ya know, since I'm not the trouser type of gal, I had to find a skirt equivalent. (Bee tee dubs, it took me more than a couple tries to type out Beetlejuice since I had Betelgeuse in the brain, uh, ka-bluh) Strangely enough, whenever I think Michael Keaton, only Batman and Much Ado About Nothing come to mind (even though I thought he could've bumbled a bit more playing Dogberry.) In any case, in my weird head, Beetlejuice makes me think of Michael Keaton, who is the best Batman ever, and that makes me think of Danny deVito aka the Penguin's pinstriped pants. In conclusion, I really think this is a Penguin, not a Beetlejuice skirt, even though pinstripes aren't really stripes-stripes.
Naturally, the first time I wear this skirt out, I pair it with colors from the same Tim Burton family. Greys? check. Wingtips? check. Skulls? check. Thank goodness it was still lush when we took these pictures or else I would be showing you monochrome photos, background and all.

    I love Micheal Keaton's Batman, too. I don't remember too many of his other movies (including Beetlejuice, haha!), but I have that version of Batman, I love it so much.

  10. I love Batman, but Michael Keaton will always be Beetlejuice for me. I wanted to be Lydia so bad when I was a kid. I even named one of my ferrets after her! That said, I don't think your skirts is tooooo Beetlejuice. Just a little. More Penguin-ish for sure ;P
