Today’s outfit has one of my favorite color mixes: Yellow and Purple. It may have something to do with the fact that these were my college’s school colors (Go Brits!)….or the fact that it just looks so autumn-like! This is one of my favorite summer dresses, its has a really cute open back. I got it at Forever 21 a while back and even though it says not to wash it, I did. Oops. Well, needless to say, it shrunk in length A LOT. I was so sad, because it was almost too short to wear out of the house, much less to work. Then, while wandering around Pinterest one day, I came across the idea of a skirt extender! All I did, was buy a nude colored slip from Kohls and I sew this really pretty tan lace (Joann’s) on to the bottom of it. Voila! Instant skirt extension for those skirts and dresses that are just a tiny bit too short! I loved it so much that I actually made more in black and white.
