Sorry about the photo quality today! Today was a bit of a camera disaster. First my Nikon ran out of battery as soon as I turned it on (should have seen that one coming), then my back up camera wouldn't turn on at all (fully charged battery and all??), so I was left with using my cell phone, which explains the gray-ness/graininess of the pictures. But oh well! I did what I could, and the blog must go on!

Anyway, when I found out about the EBEW challenge today, I immediately thought of these two pieces. They're actually the only two thrifted things I have that I could actually get the smell out of, and they're both patterns, so I couldn't resist pairing them together. When I put the skirt on, though, it seemed a bit too much, since it's normally about calf length. The outfit didn't feel like me, and I decided it was the length. It felt too vintage, too overboard, and like something I would never wear. So I did a fake DIY and made it into a pencil skirt! It's simple: I just undid some of the buttons that go all the way down the skirt to the length I wanted, which was above the knees. Then, I took both sides that were caused by undoing the buttons and tied them together! There was still some length at the back, so I just tied another knot there. Just don't tie your knots too tightly, or else you'll be waddling everywhere. Ahem. Anyway. Just when I thought I couldn't find another way to incorporate knots into my outfit, I somehow do. I'm liking this trend. I realize it does sound a little more complicated without pictures, so I might do a tutorial or something later. 

Anyway, with my newly shortened skirt, this outfit felt more like me, but it was still missing something, so I threw on almost all my necklaces. Yesss. So much better. It's me! Just...thrifted.

No idea what's going on in this picture. I guess I'm doing a little jig.
