I am so sorry for the delay today. I have been fighting this sinus infection from hell that has absolutely taken me out. It is rare that I get sick, but this wet Southern California is really screwing with me. So I give you the present of pre & post blog face. You get to see how much I cake the face to look presentable.
See, this is the pretty average me, minus less allergy looking eyes and pale skin.
I had this look planned from Striped Swallow Designs patterns. I used the girl’s Festival skirt for inspiration and drafted something similar with a black knit mini skirt and a hi low black organza overskirt. It gave me that look of sexy mixed with a little high fashion over the top-ness.
Then I used my favorite hack for the Cloud Chaser to make a crop top with some black floral print polyester. I love the loose flutter sleeves and the crop length-because don’t I always? For our dates, we try to go somewhere near the beach for dinner, drinks, dancing and of course, sitting by the ocean so this felt like the perfect way to dress for all the occasions. I know he will love it. And I feel comfortable, and dressed up.
And unfortunately, the wind hates me right now so my skirt, hair, bitch face, were all over the place.
Patterns used: Striped Swallow Cloud Chaser
Skirt inspired by girl’s festival skirt
