Play the accordion?

Each week I enjoy the challenge set forth by Clothed Much: Breaking rule and Meet Virginia Thrift a holics.  Take a casual silk top and put it with a polyester dress-i-er vintage bottom.

Recently I have seen accordion skirts everywhere on celebrities.  I mean everywhere.  Don't get me wrong I like them as much as the next but I was taken aback.  I haven't seen this many accordion skirts since the late 80's early 90's.  All the same about 2 months ago I came across one in a give away pile at a yard sale; I l love vintage and thrifty ness!  It took me a while to get around it but here it is.  I wore it for a birthday party we hosted for a close friend.  I had to get ready in about 7 minutes and I knew I wanted to wear my skirt so I Google image searched for some ideas and then tweaked it to make it my own. 

If you take a look at the link up above you can see the massacre that is our home after the party.  Eeek!

Side note: my husband was raised in a military family and they are big on lawns and grass.  I was raised if it is green why fight it.  We have, after many discussions, come to an agreement: we will finish the inside of our house before we do anything outside so we have a nice large yard of beautiful different varieties of weeds!


  1. This outfit is soo pretty! Really suits you!the skirt/belt makes your wait look teeny tiny! xx

  2. Thanks! It helps that I have THE smallest torso. I don't like putting my hand on my hips because I feel like my elbow are about to touch my ears. ;P

  3. Ha, I'll be honest, I don't even know what an accordian skirt is! Hahaha. Your outfit is beautiful though!

  4. Thanks for the compliment. You can google it but it basically looks like an accordion style folded skirt... simple.
