Oh, I so badly wanted a swingy midi skirt. They looked so gorgeous on other bloggers, and the item sat patiently on my wish list for so long. This winter, I finally ordered the ponte circle skirt from Eloquii, and as soon as it arrived, I eagerly tried it on. The color was beautiful, and it was amazingly comfortable… and it looked terrible on me. The hem hit at exactly the wrong place. I paired it with both flats and heels, and neither worked. Perhaps midi skirts just aren’t my thing.
I loved it so much, I didn’t want to return it, so I chopped off about 87 inches to create a knee-length, and lo! It’s perfect.
Almost. Halfway through the work day, I realized there was a huge gash in the back. Centered on my butt. On only my fourth wear. Luckily, it’s right on the seam, so I should be able to easily sew that up.
Gift earrings and gift necklace. A winning combination! Also new glasses. I have two new pair: these, which are fabulous, and a purple pair with little sparkly bits.
Who says you should never wear stripes and dots together? These cuties were just made to be worn with the Fluevogs.
