With the aim of creating outfits I would actually wear, I teamed the skirt with a colourful t-shirt. I wear tees often. They're comfy and don't require ironing (bonus!). The outfit looked a little too casual. Layered with an asymmetrical TS14+ vest it looked a little more dressy, and more like me.
As the skirt was plenty busy, I kept the accessories simple. A black necklace that I picked up from Equip long ago. I got it as part of a 3 pieces for $10 sale. The earrings are made by yours truly. I made the mould using silicon and clay. I drilled the holes and made the ear hooks. Not just a pretty face. The earrings are dramatic. I don't get many opportunities to wear them.
Remember these shoes from the Tribal challenge? I found the shoe vamp all wrong for that outfit and decided to change to a cute nude shoe. I assumed that meant these shoes were destined for pants or a long skirt. They worked a treat with this stripy maxi skirt.
My disposable income disappeared when my role was made redundant in July. I'm keen to enjoy an extended break. My spending habits have had to change to accommodate that. This skirt was the perfect price of $19. I had become accustom to TS designs. I wanted to scrunch the side of the skirt up. Nope, this design doesn't do that. At $19 I wont complain. I'm delightfully surprised the skirt is lovely to wear. It's comfy and the fabric is so soft.
The resin bangle is a delicious milky colour. I created that also. I really must get back into creating jewellery. I have lots of unfinished pieces that have been sitting around for months waiting for some lovin. The width of the bangle seemed to work with the stripes in the skirt.
Not sure where I got this ring from. A store on the Gold Coast. When I saw it I was giddy with excitement and thought it was the nicest piece of jewellery I had ever seen. That was before the days of Etsy and Madeit.
