Quilting cotton once more...oops! I realize the real reason this fall leaf print was offered in a wide width (60" as opposed to the typical 45") was for people to use it for making table cloths, but I see a wide width fabric and I immediately think circle skirt. So of course I some how ended up with just enough to eek out this light weight skirt for the warmer days of fall.
The lace of this top almost looks like spider webs too, which is just perfect for the week before Halloween right? I scandalously skipped the camisole I would normally wear underneath this top too, as my new Rago longline bra provides a lot of coverage by itself. I'll be reviewing this longline bra and the Rago high waist shaper (girdle really) soon, as I invested in both recently. To add even more leaves to the mix I pinned on my duo of celluloid and amber rhinestone brooches and paired them with gold and rhinestone earrings in a similar hue. The belt and handbag are vintage, but the shoes are my new favorites from Royal Vintage shoes! I have to resist the temptation to wear them all the time, rotation is good ;)
I am quickly running out of time to prepare things for my trip to Mexico as November is approaching fast. I have an amazing vintage skirt I need to hem among other sewing tasks weighing on my mind before I can pack. Still a few days at the beach (and a lovely wedding) could be just what the doctor ordered to chill me out before we dive into the holiday season at work!
