When I decided that I finally wanted to pull the trigger on a true "circle" skirt, I searched high and low for just the right pattern and style before making my first purchase. I settled on this Mandie Bee circle skirt in "Cats on Pink" from Heart of Haute. Also, the overall length is 23 inches, so the fact that it is just slightly shorter than other circle skirts was really preferable to me (as a shorty short girl... not quite 5'2"...).
When my skirt finally arrived, it was actually too big, and I exchanged it for a smaller size - so the good news is that I can tell you that their customer service is super awesome and I was able to get this taken care of, no problem. I even had to call them to check up on my order (their entire shopping system was updated in the middle of my exchange process and I lost my order info!) but everything was super smooth and taken care of - I will definitely order from Heart of Haute again! Especially because I do love this skirt so much!
I don't have any fancy retro or reproduction vintage tops to pair with my circle skirt, so I just went with a simple scoop-neck t-shirt from Target (hey, for like $6 it can't be beat!) and I'm very happy with the end result. In the colder weather, it will be really easy to pair this with a cardigan and some tights. Seasonal fashion? Heck no, make it work year-round!
Pro tip: I wear black "bicycle" shorts under all of my dresses and skirts, or leggings in the winter. Although I do enjoy dresses, you never know when the wind might pick up, or you've gotta climb a ladder or sit cross-legged on the floor. Better to be safe than sorry.
Nope, I don't iron. Not if I can help it. Deal.
I'm still breaking in these shoes from Kenneth Cole (purchased via Zappos). They pinch the top of my foot a little bit at the front end. But once they get broken in and stretch out just a smidge, they should be fine. I really like the ballet shoe elastic criss-cross at the ankle style.
In other news: Hey check it out! I painted my nails! They had gotten longer than usual, so instead of cutting them down, I decided to just go for it and paint them a nice green color (Halloween witchy-vibes)... It lasted about 3-4 days before they chipped too much and I removed the polish altogether. I can't decide if I'll finally cut them, or if I should try a new shade, like purple.
