All remixed except skirt
Skirt (worn as dress): Indian Festival at Penn's Landing (2009)
Bracelet: gift from uncle
So last year all the bloggers were turning their maxi skirts into strapless dresses. And I didn't own any maxi skirts, so I didn't follow suit. I got this skirt last fall at an Indian Festival, and I have never worn it, partly because it's so stinkin' long and partly because it's more hippie chic than my usual style.
But as I was cleaning out my closet on Saturday, I rediscovered this crazy skirt. I tried it on and remembered that it's about three inches too long to be conducive to graceful walking. I'm not quite 5'3" (159 cm) and I try to avoid anything too long because I feel like I just look shorter than I am. So then I tried yanking the skirt up.
Add a belt and the skirt becomes a dress. And it's still long! This is usually an awkward length for me, but I like the way the whole thing turned out. I'm not sure that the skirt has suddenly become a keeper, but I did manage to wear something I've never worn before.
Even Kiku approves.
