The Maxi

Who says you can’t wear a maxi skirt during the winter? You know me, always going against a current. 🙂

Here’s the inside scoop: maxi skirts make me feel like a princess — especially this one because it flows with the wind, twirls when I twirl, and I can curtsy in it. Yes, absolutely perfect. Hey, every girl needs to have a twirl-able skirt! Don’t judge.

Maxi Skirt Tips:
1. Make sure that the slip underneath is long enough. Maybe it’s just my conservative taste, but I think that the short slip with a see-through long skirt is a bit inappropriate in my opinion. Oh well, everyone’s entitled, right?
2. To make it a more fall/winter look, pair it up with ankle boots!

The Red Brocade

Last weekend, I took off my teacher hat and partied it up in Florida at my cousin’s wedding. If you don’t know already, I have been blessed with a wonderfully big extended family. We are so tight-knit that it’s kind of scary and weird to some people. Here are some snippets:

I loved wearing this red dress so much that I decided to try and dress it down for work.

Note: Do not be confused with Brocade and Brigade.

BTW, I know some of you may be wondering “Why all the fashion posts? Where’s all the crafts?” Well, getting dressed is a MUST-DO, while crafting is a MAY-DO. I can’t show up to work in my PJ’s now, can I? When I have more time to craft, don’t worry, you’ll be the first to know.

I should have titled this post “Fix-its”.
Problem 1: I wanted to wear the dress, but it was slightly chilly.
Fix-it 1: Layer with a sweater
Problem 2: The sweater was a tad loose and had no shape due to stretching.
Fix-it 2: Add a belt
Problem 3: Tired due to staying up to watch Revenge and Once Upon a Time.
Fix-it 3: Two cups of coffee and smile and hope that your students won’t notice.
