Was really long...now, not so much

So I bought this super long, high waist opera/formal/black tie/"insert-reason-for-needing-a-skirt-this-long-and-stiff-here" skirt from the thrift store a little bit ago, and I had been eyeballing it trying to figure out how to make it wearable in my actual everyday life!



Simply stated, I hacked off the bottom, (okay, not hacked, but lovingly trimmed) to just above my knee, and hemmed it. Voila! A "fits me like a glove" high waisted pencil skirt! I'm especially excited about this refashion because the others I've come across have been ill-constructed, too short or made from some weird fabric I'd never wear. So YAY me for pulling it off!



More to come,

I had a hard time with it for a sec, bt I think that it applies to clothes and accesories, not shoes and undies. If it does, I'm gonna be using that Get Out of Refashionista Jail Free card real soon!
