Cue the panic attack, my little sister, Kate, turned 18 years old a few days ago. Granted, I’m only two years older, but it made me feel like an old woman/proud mama. Nevertheless, it’s a rare occasion that I have an event to actually dress up for in good ol’ Colorado Springs. We went to The Melting Pot for dinner, where I got dressed up only to sit in a dark restaurant and eat obscene amounts of melted chocolate.
Anyway, this skirt is hands-down one of my favorite pieces of clothing, but I rarely have a place to wear it. It’s too fancy for class but too nice to want to ruin on a night out (especially with the chiffon.) I would say it’s perfect for a nice brunch, but it rises to extreme heights when I’m sitting down. Dinner is the perfect occasion for this high-low, but because it’s so memorable, it looks like I’ll have to retire it for awhile.
The biggest victory in this outfit lies within the shoes. I have been begging my mother to buy me a pair of Tory Burch sandals for months, and after too many failed attempts, I took matters into my own hands. Thanks to a Facebook ad, I joined Threadflip, an online consignment store. Go ahead and judge me for being okay with buying previously used shoes and bags, but there are a ton of items on this website that are brand new. That’s how these shoes were. Never been worn, they were on sale for $130 on the website and with an email coupon, I snagged them for only $96. Bargain hunting is my middle name, baby.
Let me know what you think of my outfit and holla at me in the comments in section 🙂
