Jewel Tones


Cardigan: Nordstrom
Tank: Collective Concepts
Skirt: thrifted and shortened
Shoes: Target

I wrote some editorial copy about jewel tones at work this week, and I think that’s what made me want to wear this skirt. I recently had it shortened because the original below-the-knee length just wasn’t doing it for me. It’s partly because the skirt is pretty full...it just seemed so big and billowy before.

I’m sorry I don’t have any Halloween photos to post, but I ended up working overtime on Halloween, and by the time I got home after inching along in L.A. traffic for an hour and a half, there was no point in dressing up. At least I have bat wings and ears to wear next year!

  2. I've been all about the jewel tones lately! and that skirt- total swoon. I love the shorter length. Do you take your clothes to a tailor to get shortened? I am such a shitty seamstress sometimes :-)

  8. good call on the shorter length. i would have done the same thing. below the knee can look so dowdy sometimes.
