Royal Blue: Part Deux

Hi Friends!
(Aw, yes, I decided to switch things up a bit with the greeting)

After you see the images below, I already know what you're going to say...Didn't she just wear that skirt? Well, yes I did. The morning of the Red, White & Royal Blue shoot, I was feeling uncertain and felt I didn't look myself in the outfit. So, what did I do...I returned home, restyled the skirt, and went back out to take more pictures. Funny thing about the entire scenario, once we loaded the shots onto the computer, I realized that I liked the first choice after all. Thank heavens for a patient husband/photographer.

Today's look is what I came up with when I went home to restyle. To be perfectly honest, I wasn't thrilled with the restyle because I felt like I have seen it before. Oh well. I hope you won't grow bored with my new skirt because I absolutely love it! I promise, I won't wear it again for awhile. One thing I am grateful for is having this extra photo shoot in reserve, because frankly, today I just didn't feel like doing much. I basically stayed in the house and watched Lifetime movies all day.

Today's look: Skirt: Custom made by Steff Glenn (my sister), Top: Loft, Shoes: Nine West, Belt: Michael Kors, Bag: Vintage, Jewelry: You've seen these pieces time and time again.





Style Tip: I purchased this little vintage patent purse with hesitation. It had many scuffs on it. However, I convinced the store to sell it to me for $4 rather than the original price of $18. I took it home and wiped it down with milk and...tah dah...no more scuff marks!


Well, now it is time to get back to my Lifetime movies. I hope you all have an incredible week{wink}

  4. I love that skirt! It's gorgeous, and it has pockets - of course you're going to wear it a lot! I'm afraid my posts are beginning to be lots of reruns, but it's more of a challenge to do something new with the same old thing, right?

    1. The French have a perfectly curated wardrobe of key pieces. That is what I strive for, but it is difficult when I see so many things I want. Yes, it has pockets. My sister made it for me and I told her it must have pockets!

  6. It's a classic look, and worth sharing! Now, I can't wait to get back to my thrift store on Tuesday and see if they still have the patent purse I carried around and put back due to scuffs. Milk???!!! Crazy, but I'll try it!

    1. Yep, milk. I Googled how to remove scuff marks on patent, and, it said milk...it worked :)

  7. Yes, you are right, even though I like the skirt and the red/white/blue theme, I definitely like this better and God bless your hubby! Thanks for the cleaning tip with the milk, I know it also does wonders for your feet when you add it to a footbath.

    1. It must be the lactaic acid that works wonders. I'm glad you like the look!

    1. I can't decide My. I like the skirt styled both ways!

  21. Nope ... not a bit bored with it. Just the way to wear it. It looks lovely on you, and I know you're just getting started finding ways to wear it. I'm inspired by your sister's creativity and talent. I've been on the verge of going fabric shopping for the midi skirts I want for spring and late winter. I won't find theme here for a year or two if ever. The sewing machine is looking at me resentfully for not thinking of this sooner!

    1. My husband and sister gifted me with a sewing machine for Christmas. It sat in the carrier for weeks. I just took it out to play with it a couple of days ago. I'm very intimidated by it. However, I'm thrilled by the limitless possibilities.

      I'm glad you're not tired of the skirt :)

    1. I Googled, "How to remove scuff from patent leather" and one suggestion was milk!

  24. Thanks for the milk tip. I can use that. And I cannot be bored with this skirt.... it is sooooo beautiful. I so want it as well. Does your sister take on assignments from abroad? And I like both outfits equally. This black patent leather shoes and bag and belt with it, is very elegant.

    1. I tried to convince my sister to do so and she says she doesn't have time. But, Greetje, I will ask again. She is so very talented.

    2. That is very kind but rather impossible. I can never come over for a first fit.... And to make a skirt without even measuring the person you are sewing for, is asking for trouble.
