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 =)
