Yup.... I'm wearing another skirt that I made =P

I know, I know. I can't stop making them, though! I love being able to choose from a huge variety of fabrics! I have so many more outfit options, now. And knowing I'm wearing something I made.... it makes me feel really proud of myself, as dorky as that sounds.

I made this skirt out of a really cute, polka-dot denim I found. I've worn my store-bought denim skirt so many times that I figured I needed a second one! I love that the polka-dots give it a little something special, so it's not just a plain ol' denim skirt. =]

I love this shirt so much! I couldn't pass it up because the print was just too adorable. (Ignore that I forgot to button one of the buttons... my OCD noticed it right away when I looked at the photos!) I also wore apple earrings, which you can't really see, but they're super cute!

And of course, my favorite red belt! (Darn that button!)

Outfit details:

Skirt: Handmade
Shirt: Forever21+
Belt: Torrid
Shoes: Marshall's
Earrings and necklce: Can't remember. =/ 

Oh, and I got a hair cut! =)

Out of this world!

You guys.... this fabric is freakin' amazing. When I spotted it in the fabric store I knew it would make a fantastic skirt.... and boy, was I right! Check this baby out!

Isn't it super?! I just love it!

Not the best photo.... but did you notice that I colored my hair? =) I bleached it on my own last week and then dyed it red. It turned out much better than I was expecting!

Kitty Cat Skirt..... #2!

You wouldn't know that I'm a dog person since I can't stop making skirts with cats on 'em!

I found this lovely fabric months ago on the clearance rack at Joann's. I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be for Valentine's Day, but whatever. I'll wear it in September if I want! 

Ah, how I love sweater clips. =)

Outfit details:

Skirt - Made by me (of course!)
White t-shirt - Wal-Mart
Red cardigan and bow belt - Ross
Mary Janes - Payless
Sweater Clip - Also made by me

Also, in case I've never mentioned it before, my glasses are from! They have a wonderful selection of glasses, and your first pair is free! =)

Kitty Cat Skirt

So, of course I HAD to make a skirt out of this great cat fabric I found last week. I decided to do a simple skirt instead of a circle skirt - so it only took me about 1 1/2 hours to make! Not bad, right? And it's super comfortable!

To pick up on the pink in the skirt, I paired it with a hot pink belt (and some pink lipstick! - Enchantress by Covergirl).

I wore an earrings & necklace set I made out of some cute brass charms and a brooch I got from a vintage shop in the next town over. 

I decided to go simple with the shoes since I had so much going on everywhere else. =)

Outfit details:

Ruffle top, green cardigan, pink belt, and shoes - Ross (I clearly love that store!)
Earrings & Necklace - Made by me
Brooch - Vintage shop in Lancaster, CA

I'm a skirt-making addict!

Ever since my last post about the red & white circle skirt I made, I've been making skirts like crazy! I've found some pretty interested fabrics and have been experimenting with different patterns. 

I made another circle skirt out of this amazing "Movie Night" fabric I found on sale at Joann's! I can't wait to wear it on a movie date with Dan. ;-) It has little popcorn buckets, peppermints, and gummy candies printed all over it!

I'm so proud of it! I hemmed it with bias tape (after trying several other unsuccessful ways!) and it looks so professional! =)

I also found this really cute owl fabric and made a simple skirt out of it. These are the only photos I have of it for now.... I promise to model it soon!

Lastly, I have this super cute horse skirt that I decided to list on Etsy!  I loved this horse fabric and thought it would make a darling skirt. How awesome does it look with these boots I got from Rocket Dog?! The awesome horse shirt is from Torrid and the belt is from Ross. =)

I'm pretty certain that I'll be making lots more skirts. I already bought some great Birthday fabric to make a circle skirt out of to wear on my birthday on the 25th! I'm nuts! =)
