Living on Inspiration

wear-no-more

2 Comments

I was pretty much MIA last week. We will blame it on Netflix…Gossip Girl to be exact. I crammed all 6 seasons into 3 weeks. I should be ashamed of myself, but what else is a stay-at-home-wife supposed to do? I’ll get caught up on the ironing this week, I promise. Also, I was healing & pealing from my nasty sunburn.

Anywho, I’m back with a wear no more post that I’m pretty pumped about.

As you already know, from my last skirt transformation, I love skirts. I got rather used to wearing them growing up, and then they were a must during my college days. Thankfully, I don’t have to cover my knees 24/7 anymore. I took my inspiration from this super cute LOFT skirt. The cut and length is perfect for my 5’3″ little self.

I’ve had this New York & Co. skirt for a long time. It’s a size 2, cotton, pencil skirt. (not that it looks very pencil-y on me…

I hemmed it up about 5″+ shaped the sides to taper in a bit + gave it a good iron. Vwa-la!

I’m thrilled to add this gem to my skirt collection.

I’d also like to announce my new found desire to wear lipstick. Up until today, I went for the lip gloss. Blair (from Gossip Girl) has inspired me to rock some lipstick. Here’s to trying new things! :-)blair waldorf, cat eye , gossip girl, hair, harry winston

  1. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve tried on clothes and wished they were shorter to suit me better. Despite having the skills to take up a hem, I resent paying for the extra bit I don’t need!
