What I Wore to an Autumn Wedding

What I wore to an Autumn Wedding

I have had this skirt for at least three years. I found it at a thrift store paired with a matching jacket, and can only assume it had a previous life as some kind of dance costume. I had vague intentions of doing something different with it, as I do with many of my more interesting thrift store finds, but it languished in my closet until last month. That's when I realized it would be the perfect basis for a Autumn wedding outfit.

It needed a little bit of work to fit me properly -- I added in some elastic and altered the seams on the side without a zipper -- but I was really pleased with the result! The decoration on the waist is the best part of the skirt anyway, and it needed no attention.

I happen to have a cami the exact same color as the skirt, but I decided to take advantage of the gold accents for the rest of the ensemble -- gold lace cami shell, gold leather jacket, gold jewelry, gold hair pieces. It's totally overkill for the every day, but perfect for a wedding. Once the dancing got started, I ditched the jacket and had lots of fun twirling around (and, to be honest, doing the Thriller dance) in that skirt.
