Here it goes, my first post! This is my most recent project. I bought this Limited skirt from Goodwill because I thought it followed the spring stripe trend pretty well. It was way too big at first, so I brought it in at the side seams to hug my curves. I also made it high-waisted, which I love. Sorry I don't have any before pics. For every project after this I will try to have some. I wore it with a simple white tee to call attention to the colorful stripes in the skirt and a loose black belt at the waist. I wore this outfit to a job interview and got so many compliments. Btw this is the first time I've taken photos like this. It was a little foreign to me, but I tried my best to make love to the camera. Enjoy! -C.C.
