Drawing Inspiration

Mary Kate Olsen rocks.
In 2004, she wore this amazing dress to present at the Video Music Awards (photo credit: thefashionspot) and everyone went nuts. Little did we know, she was vintage shopping, found this beautiful 50s vintage SKIRT and since she's such a waif she wore it as a dress. Fabulous!
Anyway. I have this peasant skirt in my closet from the days of yore (i am so sorry i ever went out with a street sweeping peasant skirt) but for some reason I just remembered it last night and decided to try it a new way today! Success!
I wore it as a dress and belted it. I'll probably add a comfy cardigan or hoodie later for the movies (hurrah michael clayton!) but for now i'm comfy.
There's something so nice about being able to rework things. I'm alllll about it.

hey thanks cee-cee!
I didn't notice it at first, but you're right...something about those loooong dresses make their torsos look just as long!

...a possible hint for future outfit planning...?
