Emerald City


Hello lovely ladies! I hope that you all are having a spectacular weekend, I know I am! I woke up this morning to find out that I've won my very first blogger's award! I am so excited about that and I will post on that tonight along with a new outfit post.


So, here recently, I've come to develop quite an obsession with knee length or longer skirts. I'm aware that most people my age wouldn't wear something like this, as it's a little "grandma", but I don't care. I love them. Modesty is the best policy, right?




I found this emerald color skirt, the shoes, and this purse at Goodwill. I have had the best luck their my past few trips. I've got some really great things. I just love that place. If you have one near you and have never been, I strongly urge you to. You'll be happy that you did.


I did a post a few weeks ago on crackle polish, but I never got around to posting pictures. Well, here's the finished product. I must say, at first I wasn't too fond of the outcome, but I've grown to like it. I think the trick is to find the right base color. It makes all the difference.
Shirt-F21 $8
Skirt-Thrifted $4
Purse-Thrifted $3
Shoes-Thrifted $3
Belt-F21 $3
Total Outfit-$21

I shall be back tonight with more fun things.

I've been wondering about crackle polish and couldn't decide if I wanted to try it or not...guess I'll have to give it a go!

I love that green color on you! And who cares what other people wear? If you like it, that's all that matters!

Modesty is definitely the best policy ;) Especially if you look as great as you do in that skirt! Loving this outfit, the top is awesome and the shoes and purse are too! I love having consistently good thrifting trips :D
