What I Wore Today: Skirting (not an) Issue

Monday, January 31, 2011

Since all of you gave me such positive comments yesterday (love you, thank you!), I decided to give "the skirt" another try today. =)


A little info about the skirt: This skirt actually belonged to my grandma from the eighties. It used to be a maxi skirt. During one of my possessed sewing frenzies, I decided to chop a major part of it off. I am now feeling a bit of remorse for doing that since maxi skirts are all the rage this season but I have to live with my semi-mistake. I think making it shorter gives it a more classic cut thus also lending it more longevity, style-wise. I just wish I waited a bit longer before chopping off a huge chunk of it so I could've worn it as a maxi first.

and yes, in case some of you are wondering, I bought the same blouse in two different colors =)

@lyzel and chyrel: my grandma used to have a lot, it's too bad I was only able to salvage some, mostly from the eigthies. I would've loved to get my hands on some pieces of hers from the 50' and 60's! I drool everytime I take a look at old photo albums =)
