SLIDER

OOTD // Velvet Rush

Outfit Details:   Tshirt: Debs   Skirt: thrifted + diy   Socks: old   Boots: thrifted

Ring: Philippines
What do you think of my newly thrifted finds? I headed into my favorite thrift store determined to quickly browse the shoe section before booking it out of there. However, on my way to the shoe racks, I had to pass by the skirts (a huge weakness, in case you can't tell) and this crushed velvet material caught my eye.


The rest, as they say, is history. Welcome to my blog, little velvet skirt. 
It was of mid-calf length originally, but I didn't like how it looked and whipped out some scissors. I think I get scissor happy whenever I thrift skirts. (See HERE and HERE). And there are actually two more that I've thrifted and cut up that I have yet to show you.

Necklace: Vanity


Excuse my yucky scars...I rarely think about them but once I start baring my legs, I realize the toll volleyball and basketball have taken on my knees! So you may be seeing more of my battle wounds in future posts. Sorry!

I just have a knack for spazzy jump photos...haha, look at the claw that's my hand in that picture!

So when I finally reached the shoe section, I found these lace-up boots, which are exactly the kind of shoe I've wanted. Its ironic, because I originally had spotted these same shoes there a week ago when I was with Kirsten. I'd tried them on then, but she'd advised me they didn't quite look right. 
I'm positive it was because of the wide leg jeans I was wearing at the time. I just knew they'd look better with a skirt or skinny jeans. So glad they were still there for me when I returned!
 It was meant to be in my closet. :)

Oh, so about my field trip. It was a blast! Haha, got to hang out with some of my favorite guys in the world. Seriously, I'm closer to the guys in my class than the girls. Haha, and not in a weird way. They're like brothers to me. Which is so nice, since there's no awkwardness. We're just best friends hanging out.
I'll include a few pictures from the trip in the next post since I already made this into an outfit one.

Well, my spring break starts this upcoming week! Hooray! I'll try making extra nice posts for you guys. Thanks for all the support. It means the world to me that you actually take notice of my posts. 
TGIF!

Oh whoa! I was between updates! haha, I came back and was like "hey, this is new?" lol

Really cute skirt, I love how you gave it new life by shortening it! I would love to see the shirt tucked in and a nice belt though!! To add more shape!

So sorry the black boots were gone ;( I hate when that happens! Just check back, some might get returned! You never know ;)

and Lol at you thinking of me! That is so cute haha :) Last time I was out with Jenna we saw something and we both agreed it was something you'd like! Because it was Teal. lol :)

We must seriously be on the same fashion wavelength! I just went to the thrift store and found a crushed velvet skirt in turquoise that I was going to DIY!! Unfortunately, my skirt was a straight skirt with no flair, so I was going to try to cut it up to use as fabric and then make the skirt, but there wasn't enough length to it. :( But we definitely had the same idea!! :) I love that color on you.

I do have a similar chiffon skirt in that color that i think i might wear tomorrow with some black thigh high socks. You've given me some inspiration! :) Have a great weekend girlie! <3
