Concrete Catwalk // Self-made Maxi

June 27, 2011
it’s true. i made this maxi skirt all by myself.
it’s got all kinds of little wrinkles and snags (and i decided to leave the hem undone)
because this fabric is really hard to sew, but i still love it just the same!
also, if you follow me on twitter,
you might have seen that i ordered a few new pairs of shoes recently,
(my first purchases in a QUITE a while) and these are one of them!
do you like? i had been looking for some orange summer-y shoes for forever,
and i think these fit the bill perfectly!
tank top – tj maxx
belt – vintage, thrifted
bracelets – aldo, charming charlie
skirt – self made
handbag – j. crew
wedges – libby story

    Nice work on the skirt! And I love that top- it reminds me of a watercolor painting.

    I like the shoes! And they pull the color out of your top beautifully. I REALLY need to pull out my sewing machine and figure out how to use it!

    So cute! Love your shoes and skirt… I couldn’t tell the hem was undone at all. I suck at sewing and would never be able to make something like this!

    Mint color is one of my favorite this summer, and tonight I will be posting a ‘minty’ outfit…it is very similar the color to your skirt.
