I was just about to head outside to shoot my outfit of the day when the sky opened up and it poured, so I retreated inside to shoot a few pictures by the living room window.
The skirt I'm wearing is a thrift shop find for about $3, I loved the hem line, material and length, what I don't like is the elastic waist. As you can see the skirt came home with me, and after a few tries at finding a top to wear over the skirt (tops were too long, too short, too lumpy, etc.), I decided to wear a simple tank tucked in with an elastic waist belt to try and camouflage the skirt's own elastic waist band. It's working ok, but the elastic belt shifts around, hrmmmmm.
So, I threw on my long lace cardigan to go along with the flow of the skirt and to distract from the wonky elastic on elastic action. Heh. I had to admit when the Sisters of Mercy came on Pandora I took a minute to twirl around, this outfit gets two big thumbs up in the twirly department.
I'm going to have to work with this skirt as I don't care for elastic waist bands, especially thin elastic bands. They tend to dig into me, create lumps and bumps that really aren't there and can be less-than forgiving. Yes, the elastic is supposed to be there for comfort, but it doesn't do my figure justice in most circumstances. We'll have to see how versatile this skirt can be or if it will have to go back into the thrifting pool.
Thank you for reading!
