I don’t know if it’s the rush of the spring sales, or the fact that my style has settled down so I finally know what I’m looking for, but I’ve been shopping a lot lately. It’s probably a good thing that I no longer live around a lot of thrift stores, or my shopping will get out of hand again. At least what I got are mostly staples – like the gingham shirt I wore the other day – so hopefully I can get a lot of wear out of them. This skirt, which is also new, may be a bit more frou-frou than what I’m looking for in my new style (I’d rather have it in plain black) but come on, have I ever been able to say no to a skirt with pockets?

So this is my lace-trimmed shirt, for which tutorial I posted on Monday. I wanted to recreate this, then went with this because I don’t have a wide enough trim, but ended up with something entirely different. A few more pieces of lace and I’ll look like a particularly wussy member of the Cobra Kai… you know, with the skeleton suits?
