I paid a visit to a couple of my favorite consignment/vintage shops this weekend and stumbled upon this adorable pleated skirt with lace detail. Even though the skirt is too big for me I bought it anyway. I felt $12 was really too much of a steal to leave it on the rack.
I pinned the skirt in the back and covered it up by adding a belt. I have had this lace shirt for yeaaaars. It was a perfect match to help me create an illusion of a dress until I can take the skirt to my alterations lady and have it taken it.
This skirt is super sheer despite having a built in slip. As you see even with the black slip I added it is still very see through.
What better way to complete a "romantic" type look than with a classic pair of Chanel earrings.
I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. I super excited because I will be leaving on Thursday to go to Jamaica for five days **turning cartwheels**. I have literally been working seven days straight since May, so this vacation is so overdue and needed!
