wow...one hundred posts! i wasn't aware i'd reached the one hundred post mark until i got ready to post yesterday. yesterday's outfit was so lackluster-jeans and turtleneck and one hundred posts demands a bit of a celebration...no? nothing says p-a-r-t-y like crinoline. i built this entire look around what is basically an under garment and i'm in love! i got this skirt on sale at anthro. there were some reviews that were not very positive but i love it. i love that the material of the skirt is light weight, almost sheer and banded with grosgrain ribbon. it has a real vintage quality to it that i love. the sweater is from f21 twist parisian collection. the rose print is really sweet and the little lace rosette at the shoulder gives it a whimsical vibe. i love the contrast between the light colored skirt and the black tights with the nude patent leather shoes. the footless tights gives the look a modern punch. i didn't want to look like i was going to vintage costume party. this morning doug asked me why i was so dressed up. i think every now and then you need to dress up for yourself.
i'm practically done christmas shopping..this is unheard of for me!!! tonight we have my son's band concert and i hope to start wrapping gifts. happy tuesday!!!
