Upcycled: Floral Skirt

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.
