When I picked up this skirt at Goodwill last week, it was a good 10 inches longer. I would normally have passed it by, despite the yoked waistband, full skirt, and fun print, and dismissed it as dowdy. However, the inspiration of Liebe Marlene and Whimsical Nerd of Wardrobe Remix enabled me to see the potential. Both of these ladies wear full, retro skirts in patterns you might think of as old lady-ish. But their chutzpah and short hems save them from granny-dom. So, I hemmed this a bit higher than I normally would for work wear and attempted to copy a couple of my fashion idols.

The crazy shoes, though, are all me.
P.S. There’s a theme this week. See if you can spot it! (It’s admittedly subtle today, though.)
