Clad in Plaid

 Plaid4Plaid1PlaidPlaid5Plaid2

______I received this lovely and ever-most gorgeous plaid B.B. Dakota skirt for Christmas from my parents; up until now, I haven't had a chance to wear it since it was a bit too big. It flopped below my waistline just enough so the pleats wouldn't lay right, sort of like a forlorn jellyfish. Thankfully, I finally got around to taking in some of my old skirts last week, and so now my closet feels much better--it sure stinks to have a bunch of clothes in your closet that don't fit right! That problem is remedied now, though. Hark, the closet angels sing! My sewing skills are pretty awful, but taking in skirts is one thing I can do right. Or kind of right. Kind of right might even be stretching the truth. Sigh.


______...Well, as long as you maintain a three-mile distance of where I took it in, everything will look just fine. Promise!


______I probably could have worn this skirt in a more exciting way since it has so many colors in the plaid, but for now, this will have to do for introducing it to le blog.

that's a cute skirt! i really love the buttons up the front. :) any skirt that has buttons gets my vote, actually!

and my sewing skills are limited to hemming right now...i'm hoping to expand that this summer though!

Loving your new plaid skirt! I soooo wish I could sew at least a little bit (so envious!). I think it looks great.

I really enjoyed how you kept the entire outfit neutral but added a really colorful necklace. Its such a great look that is easy for all of us to recreate. Good job!

The plaid skirt is so cute, I love the A line shape! Ahh I wish I was able to sew, I made pajama pants for sewing class in middle school, but the pants ended up falling apart in the washing machine...haha oh well :P
