Vintage Style Post: The Awe-Inspiring Skort!

Skorts are are the mullet of the fashion world. Business in the front, party in the back, right? The bring to mind the glorious 90s. But sometimes, dangit, those old-school designers of my vintage duds used some amazing fabrics! 

I fell for this 90s skort (well, more like culottes which are equally awful) at the thrift shop because of the gorgeous colors in the floral pattern & the cute fitted bodice. Even Andy thought it was cute, until he realized it was shorts. I told him I'd cut the shorts out and turn it into a dress, and he was sold.

A couple of snips, a little DIY sewing, and a whole lotta ironing, and this cutie was ready for an afternoon date!

I paired it with a straw cloche hat (Sears, of all places) & thrifted vintage Bass wedges.

And I always gotta sprinkle on some New Eve Jewelry!
