I feel the room swayin'

vest (worn as shirt)- Levi's
skirt- I made it!
studded belt- Limited Too
sandals- Gianni Bini via Dillards

Today's outfit is a result of me not wanting to wear anything in my closet.  Do you ever have those days/weeks/small periods of time?  Nothing looks inspirational or weather appropriate at the moment.  As a result of my funk, my nails are painted pink and I am wearing a pink vest.  Pink is not a color I wear often so this is a sure sign that I am uninspired.  However, I LOVE this vest and I like the dusty rose color.

My skirt came from the bottom of a giant denim dress Mom found at Goodwill.  I had been wanting a denim skirt but had not been able to find any that I liked, so I searched for fabric and was again unable to find anything.  I used a pattern from a skirt I made earlier and I think it turned out quite well!  The two things I changed were the width of the waistband and making it a back zipper rather than a side zipper. 

On that note, I have to let you know that I am prejudiced against side zippers.  They remind me of slacks and then the word slacks makes me cringe.  Am I the only one?
