Too big

Printed rose embroidered collar top Sister Jane 
Black satin pleated skirt Burberry, similar by Armani under 35.00 USD
Black velvet block heel Juicy Couture, similar - Metallic satchel Stella Rittwagen
Vintage brown satin belt with gold buckle Escada
When I bought this skirt it was too big and I didn't care. But now I do, because the fact that its two sizes bigger than I normally use has not allowed me to wear it. Yes, I know I should have it altered. 
Currently, I am in the hunt for a new seamstress as Maria, my current one, is not answering my calls or text messages and it's been a week now. She has a vintage dress that needed altering and have wanted to pick up for two weeks now. Maybe she went dancing in it ?
So I added a belt in the hopes I could get by and make it look like a paper bag waist skirt. I don't know if I fooled you, but I certainly did not fool me. 
I need to find a new seamstress. Oh and do you ever wonder if your seamstress wears your clothes or am I totally deranged? 

Pastel Polka dot skirt

Pleated pastel polka dot skirt Paula Cahen de Anvers, similar 
Metallic satchel Stella Rittwagen
Blue sleeve bow top Forever 21, love this green one under 10.00 USD
Grey perforated flats Dr. Scholl's, here in nude
Victorinox watch - evil eye bracelet 

This skirt was one of those purchases I made just to give the item a try. This is its first wear and I am not too sold on the results. 
Considering the colours of the polka dots I might try it with burgundy or light turquoise top next, what do you think?
Knowing me, if I had left this skirt behind I would be thinking about it, regretting not purchasing it, thinking I missed out and beating myself up for it. 
You know, "the grass is always greener on the other side" syndrome.


Slow edition


 
2010

It seems that I can buy more garments than I can edit from my closet and although that does not sound very encouraging maybe it's one of the reasons that keep me going. 
Edit reasons vary. Today's item of choice for edition is a J. Teal brand top that was purchased pre blog and has been worn only about four times in 8 years. The fabric is thin, the collar is showing signs of wear and its not been worn enough to stay in the closet. Slow edits are my way of doing things, it may not be immediate but there are no regrets.
