Worn: October 19, 2012
This skirt was originally a dress, attached at the waist to a plain black top of no particular appeal. I bought it anyway, on clearance, figuring I could take the risk on a modification working out.
I bought this tanktop because I wanted a comfortable green tanktop and it was the best I could find at the time. But the unappealing shade kept me from wearing it for two years. I probably would have gotten rid of it by now, but when going through all my clothing looking for matches to the colors in the skirt, I found that it was the only piece I had that matched the leaves. I've almost always used it with this skirt ever since.
I bought two identical pink flower necklaces from Macys, keeping one to use in its original condition. I made a simpler necklace and two pairs of earrings from the other. The simple disk earrings I'm wearing today are by far the greatest benefit I've gotten out of the two necklaces.
