Floral Top and Jean Skirt

I found this flowery top on my thrifty shopping adventure last month. I just love the motif but it’s one size bigger than my size. I decided to get it and planned to reconstruct it as best I could.  I honestly don’t have very good sewing skills, the only thing I have is bravery and a passion for experimentation.
My secret is putting the top/shirt or skirt that fits me perfectly on top of the shirt/shirt or skirt I want to construct. Then draw a line or pin it along the line and sew it. The result? It’s not bad for an amateur seamstress like me.

I wore:
Jones New York Top (thrifted), Isaac Mizrahi Skirt (thrifted), Moda for DSW shoes

These photos were taken at newly built apartment complex we found accidentally when we returned from our journey looking for my husband’s ergonomic chair and pillows at Relax The Back. We thought this area would be a nice background for taking pictures. Nobody was there except a leasing trailer and one car parked in front of it.  While we snapped some photos, a few cars came in and parked in front of the leasing trailer.

Right when we finished taking our pictures and were walking toward our car, 2 girls came out  from one of the cars. One girl held a camera and the other wore a nice dress complete with with make up. I told my husband that judging by their style and look, I had a strong feeling they are a fashion bloggers too.” I actually insisted they were a fashion bloggers. Apparently they were waiting for us to finish. We exchanged smiles at each other but it’s too bad, I didn’t ask their web address.  It’s a small world! I’m glad we didn’t fight over that prize photography spot :)

Have you had an experience meeting another blogger taking pictures in the same spots as yours?
