I actually bought this skirt at Goodwill with the intention of using it for my Halloween costume. However, when faced with the prospect of possibly ruining it in a bar on Bourbon Street, I freaked. It’s in such great condition and I have such great plans for this skirt – how could I place it in the line of fire like that? When I took it to the tailor to have it fitted, she even commented on the fact that it’s actually the right length for me (she’s usually letting hems out on whatever I bring in). Needless to say, another, less fortunate skirt stood in.
I got this bag in an antique store in Annapolis waaay back at the beginning of the summer and I’ve been biding my time for velvet season to come back around again. What can I say? I’m a sucker for tassels.
