Passionate Fashion - Frumpier than I thought

I hate it when you leave the house thinking that you are looking like a million bucks and then you take your pictures and realize that a simple tweak might have at least brought you up to a ten buck look.

I was super excited when I thrifted this lined tweed skirt in the super fun blue and lime green colors. I have been holding onto this skirt since the 90 degree weather this summer. This weather has been great for the debut of this skirt!

I was disturbed to realize that this skirt needed a bit of tailoring to make it the awesome item I thought it to be. I was more than disturbed when I realized this fact after a full day of work.

A little tailoring could make this skirt fit more like it should have! A more tailored fit would have been much more sleek.

I think it still looked gorgeous with the black top though!! I would have preferred a fitted blazer with it as opposed to the boxy sweater, but without the sweater you look very trim and pulled together. Your hair looks so cute curly like that!

i hate that too. like i was inspired by the lovely gal at my edit to wear a top over a maxi and belt it. i did and thought it looked good til the pic. oh well. i happens to all of us i am sure. anyway, i agree with kendra that this would look good with a blazer:)

Love the skirt. You should definitely get it tailored b/c then you will look amazing. And it's too pretty to not keep wearing.

I still think it looks great! Totally loving the necklace too.

I actually really like it just the way it is. I don't think you need to change a thing! You look awesome!

We've all been there, but remember, we are typically much harsher critics of ourselves than others are of us. Part of the reason that I do outfit posts on my blog is so that I will stop having a negative reaction to pictures of myself.

I agree. Like it OK with the sweater, but really like it without. And WOWZA...Vision Direct shines through there, doesn't it? ;)
