First the skirt! That's my new for the day. A to-die-for floofy All Saints skirt. The first of many (too many) fall/winter All Saints goodies I snagged while on sale. This particular skirt is from this past summer, but it's actually quite heavy, though cotton. So it'll probably be Fall through Spring. The underskirt is insanely amazing. I adore it. I knew that I would stalk this thing and grab it on sale. I had to get it a size too big since all the smaller ones were sold out, but I easily added a seam to the waistband - so it can be let out if it ever gets too small! I used to love lurking in the EGL communities on livejournal in my teens but never had the guts to throw down with the brand name stuff. So this is my "grown up" throwback to that.
The top is actually a modified thrifted cardigan. I bought it even though it was weirdly wide. It was like there were two extra unnecessary panels. So I moved the buttons over to the next seam creating a sort of wrap-style shirt. Tacking everything loose down. I know oatmeal/tan isn't my best color so I slipped on some dark lippie to add some color to my face.
Edit: He found them in his jacket pocket. D;
Today's challenge was an opportunity to start pulling out those new things. Are you a person who lets the new stuff sit so you "don't mess it up"? Don't want to wear it out? Do you "save" clothing? I'm terrible (like really bad, just wait til the shopping ban starts, and we'll see how long before I run out of new stuff) about it so that's why I included this in remix week. Give those items you already have a good run. I mean, hey you bought 'em already.
