I wore this shirt with a plain black skirt, one that I got at Savers for just a few bucks. It's real vintage, but the waistband is weird because you pull it over your head... no zippers or closures. But I roll the waistband to shorten it a little, and cover it all up with a wide black belt. Boom. Done.
This skirt was actually featured on the blog before in this post. I was not wearing a petticoat under it; it's funny how even just my pinup-inspired style has changed... it feels weird to wear a skirt if it's not even a little bit "puffy" thanks to a petticoat. We'll see if I still feel that way this summer though...!
Speaking of, well, NOT summer, it was SNOWING the day that I took these photos. Whaaaaat? Yes:
It's ridiculous, actually. April showers? Ok. April SNOWING? No. So no, my dress does not have dust speckles all over it, it's freaking SNOW. Ugh.
So, back to my original thoughts... I combined a "pricey" top with a super inexpensive thrifted skirt = a reasonably average priced ensemble overall. I do this in reverse all the time, too. I pair my pricier skirts with boatneck tops from Target, which you can usually score for around $10. I figure it makes my wallet even out, in the end. :)
When I take photos outside, my dogs like to run around in the backyard. If they're misbehaving and fighting, then I pick up Dio (because she's the tinier one) and make her pose in photos with me, like this:
Next time I get the bright idea to own more than one dog, somebody slap me, ok?
