Wardrobe Wednesday - the festive edition

Every Wednesday, Every Wardrobe Welcome.
Wow..... you came to play. I hope your Christmas day was filled with goodness and hope.

 Today I'm rocking out a new festive look. I re-shaped this $2 op-shop shirt.

and this is my new skirt a very high-waisted Cynthia Rowley pattern.

Thankfully I read a couple of blog reviews of this pattern and added the extra 3 inches to the hem and it's still short!

If you'd like to join in today I'd love to have your company. I suspect we'll light on the ground over the holiday season but I'll be here and I'd love to see you too.

Top - op shopped and made over $2
Skirt - handmade from a Simplicity Cynthia Rowley pattern
Shoes - Made in NZ op-shop $3
Pearls - gift from my advent swap
Ring - gift from The Atlas
Glasses - Dotti

So what is Wardrobe Wednesday?
  • It's a chance to take some time once a week to peel off the polar fleece trackies (I have a pair too!!) and put on something that gives you a chance to have a 'play' in your wardrobe, to make yourself feel pretty/ stylish/ like a woman or at least not slummy!
  •  It's a time to celebrate and hopefully to embrace your body however you find it - post baby, young or old your body is lovely and functional and precious and I want this place to be a place for you to see other women (ordinary, beautiful women) who don't live in designer homes on designer budgets with designer bodies.
  • One of the things I love about looking at the way women dress is that we all like different looks and we all bring our own aesthetic to how we dress.
How to play?
1. Link in your specific blog post not just your general blog
2. Link to a post about clothes - that's what we're here for

We had a great Christmas over here. The girls and I made cookies and shared a laugh while the hubs and the boy waited for us to finish. Yeah, no helping for them. LOL

I like what you did with the top. I really want to learn to sew, every time I see your creations I start wishing...

Hi Miriam! I love the little print in your top with the big print in the skirt, so cute.
