Hi everyone, hope you are all having a good week. I decided that I would try and wear a skirt every day and in new and exciting combinations.
First up is the skirt that was recently a vintage cotton dress. I had to cut the top of the dress off as it was not in good condition - particularly around the armholes. Then I tried to add some shaping, put in a zip and made a bias binding lazy waistband. It is a little big, which is why my grey top is out rather than tucked in but it was very comfortable.
I have slipped off the wagon recently as I bought a pair of black wedges retail - I know I already have a pair of black heels but these were so cute with the off-centre bow.
Tuesday I wore a new combination of colours - pink and orange - with gold, which I consider a metal not a colour. The outfit looks better in the photo than I expected. The shirt is a little snug on me now and short in the bodice and it kept coming adrift from inside the skirt/belt. However, the feeling of the skirt fabric swishing around my legs is just wonderful.
Wednesday I wore a never worn before purple pleated skirt with a me-made top. I was not wild about this outfit. Although I love the skirt the top is very slippery fabric which kept coming out from being tucked into the skirt. I felt like I was constantly in a state of clothing adjustment.
Today's outfit may have been worn before - but a quick glance through my library shows no evidence of this outfit on my blog. I think it might have been a day when I did not take a photo. Thus this outfit is "new" to my blog. I wore my top outside my skirt to avoid annoying skirt top problem encountered earlier in the week and with the gold belt which has proven so useful.
So there you have it - different combination of items and colors, a couple of refashioned items, some op-shopped items and some Made by Me items. The question now, is, what am I going to wear tomorrow????
