The other week, I posted the results of my pleather short upcycle, which I was pretty happy with. This time around, I'm even happier because I absolutely love love love the finished piece. Here's the before:
Definitely not the most wearable piece. The length and cut combine with this particular floral felt matronly. So I grabbed my scissors and took to fixing that problem. The after:
Skirt, jacket: thrifted. Shirt: Old Navy via Plato's Closet. Tights: Kmart. Belt: Target. Shoes: Payless. Sunglasses: Charlotte Russe.
It's amazing how much this skirt was transformed by changing the length. The floral now feels vintage-y chic and the movement of the skirt is awesome. Also, I would like to just briefly point out that, as promised, I finally wore my blue trench with some color. I feel very accomplished now.
