Here are my IRL pics of my outfit from Saturday night.
I got my haircut that morning and went crazy short in the back. My hair has all kinds of cowlicks back there and my stylist hates dealing with them. It’s funny hearing him grumble when he gets to them. He finally he had enough of them over the years and decided to whack it all off. I’m glad he did because I wasn’t bothered by the ruffle around the neck on the Frances cami.
REO Speedwagon played so it was great to remember all those songs from my teenage years. We had a lot of fun.
Have a great afternoon and don’t forget about my GIVEAWAY!
~Yes, that is my “Grinch” Christmas Tree behind me. We found it at a cute little home boutique in Knoxville two years ago. We got rid of our 6 ft tree and brought this little green “Grinchy” tree home with us. I love it. Sometimes I wish I had a big tree to decorate with ribbon and silver and lots of lights but I like to keep things simple and Husband is very practical so it works for us.
I thought this skirt was so cute on the website. It was similar in style to the Deco Shirred Skirt and the Terra Paisley, both of which I have. I was hoping to wear this to a few Christmas and Holiday parties and just change up the top and shoe.
I ordered a 6, which is my normal size. I should have gone up a size. This is way too short. It might look good with nude tights of some kind. Also, it sits at my waist and not on my hips which I prefer.
Actual Waist=30 in
Actual Length=17 in (not 18 in like the website says)
The website says it is a “shimmering champagne-gold jacquard”. It is lined. The shirring at the front is flattering but it’s not enough to make me want to keep it. Back it goes.
***I returned this to the store and my PS told me “We just got that pattern in a pencil skirt.” WHAT!?! Yup…I was so excited. I had to size up (8) but it is so much better (IMO) than the mini (which was MINI). It’s not on the website (maybe stores only) so I’ve included the tag.
I tried it on with the reindeer tee and a cream embellished sweater I already had with red shoes. Loved the look of all one tone and then the pop (really POP) of color. I’ll wear it with the sweater and the Frances Cami in ivory.
A few more reviews coming soon…(there is another reindeer tee in stores).
