Skirt: Made by me
I was a bit frustrated with myself while putting together this outfit. The dress is one of my favorites, and I've been itching to wear it again for months. It does have several awkward issues, however--first, it's quite short. A lot shorter than I think modest. And secondly, the top part does not fit me well. I had forgotten these issues when I decided I wanted to wear it on Sunday, then remembered again once I had tried it on. I still wanted to wear it, so I started brainstorming for ways to make it work. I pulled out a gray sweater to cover the straps, and belted it with an edgy corset-style belt I picked up in California last year (and hadn't really worn, either). Then I remembered a purple-y skirt that I made awhile back and put that on underneath. It is a slightly lighter shade of purple than on the dress, but I think it works!(;
Do any of you have tips for making different pieces work better for you?
Have a lovely day!
