Pinning and Tucking

Today I wore a modified version of the second outfit in this picture set. The one pictured below is what I would ideally wear if it wasn't freezing cold and if I didn't have to run in between classes (which calls for more practical shoes). In truth, I wore that outfit today with a grey sweater, purple velvet blazer, and then another more loose black blazer on top of that.

I pinned that purple skirt into a sort of draped/bubble skirt myself. Some days I feel like a walking pin cushion. But I like making a different outfit from a skirt that is otherwise quite long and not very flattering.

I also pinned up the blue skirt in the first couple of photos and matched it with a splatter-printed shirt which I completely forgot about and then dug up from my closet. It would fit right into Cathy Pill's most recent collection, no?

I love that paint splattered shirt of yours! =) And did you purposely pin the blue skirt in such a way that it sort of stuck out a little at the sides near your waist? Interesting effect! =) I always worry about ruining the material a little through pinning (does it happen to you?) but this has definitely inspired me to put a little more creativity into my outfits!

You look really nice in that last photo! Love that peek of florals =)

I love the shirt. It would definitely fit into the Cathy Pill collection. It also kind of reminds me of the men's Jil Sander marble print.

p.s. you are a master pinner lol

I really like the splatter print shirt. I'm realizing lately that I love prints (my closet holds very few) and I think something like that may be a good option for me...I'm not exactly a florals girl.
