Dude. Dude. I’ve been wanting to wear this skirt as soon as it arrived in my mailbox, but winter held on for a little too long. But it’s finally spring! I keep worrying that making exclamations of spring will bring us back into the snow and ice, but I really think it’s here, for real. Fingers crossed I didn’t just jinx it all.
This skirt is pretty amazing, but it’s also a slightly expensive lesson in lengths. I ordered this from eShakti and chose a standard size, basing my decision on waist measurements as the full skirt would allow room for hips. I assumed that “knee-length” would be just fine, as most of my eShakti dresses are knee-length, but not this time. The tailor charged me $30 for hemming, which is not super-ridiculous, but still way more than the $7.50 custom fee that eShakti tacks on.
These earrings! I’ve loved Katamari Damacy since I first played it while visiting some friends back in spring 2005. I remember going home and proclaiming that I just had to have this game. It remains, to this day, one of the handful of video games that I’ve played through and beat multiple times.
Oh, and I even remembered to post a photo of both earrings.
These shoes are super cute, even though they don’t have a lot of support and the soles are fairly thin. I bought them to wear at a friend’s fall wedding at an arboretum, because the lace part dresses them up a bit more than other casual shoes but non-heels meant I wouldn’t keep poking holes in the grass. I slipped in a pair of Dr. Scholls inserts and they’ve been fine since.
