This post has been a really long time coming. Susan gifted me this beauty last fall, but I had to wait for Santa to bring me a tripod, and then I had to have time, a decent hair day… Hem.
I have a hard time “styling” this skirt. It has a wide elastic waistband, but I can’t stand to cover an inch of the fabulous lace, so I always tuck my tops in and can’t bring myself to add a belt of any sort.
These photos were taken about 9 hours into the wearing of said skirt. It holds up remarkably well. No stretching, no wrinkling… I believe it is a linen or linen blend yarn. I even wore the same outfit (different shoes of course) that evening for a group pedicure meeting. (What?! You don’t have meetings in the spa and then go grab Mexican and margaritas?)
Can you see the layers and lace? The top photo is intentionally a little washed out so you can see each tier’s pattern. I’m hoping that on your monitor, the above photo isn’t too dark…
Thanks, Susan for an INCREDIBLE gift. I love it. My friends love it, and are amazed not only that it is handmade, but that someone would part with such a fabulous creation.
How would you wear it? I’ve also worn it with a dark top and black boots, but you’ll have to take my word for it.
