This blog is about to have a first....

Guys, I'm going to attempt my first ever outfit post. Not fashion, because I don't necessarily consider myself a fashionable person, but an outfit from one of the nights I went out last weekend. I mostly wanted to take some pictures to showcase a new item of clothing that I bought a few weeks ago :)

Before I get started, I just wanted to add a little disclaimer: I put my outfits together in order to be comfortable. If I'm not comfortable in it that particular day, I'll change until I am. These photos are taken with a point and shoot camera and a self timer. They aren't the best quality, but it's what I have to work with. Also, I'm not stick thin, but I do enjoy clothes that accentuate my curves.

Here are pictures of my outfit:

Black top: Vanity
Red tank top: I've had it so long I don't remember
Boots: Vanity
Earrings: Vanity
Skirt: Dottie Adele

The whole point of this post was to highlight my WONDERFUL skirt that Miss Valerie of threads & thoughts & things I love HANDMADE. If you haven't gone to the Dottie Adele etsy shop yet, get your booty over there and make some kind of purchase pronto. She makes all of the garments and ships them to you along with a handwritten note. She even has her own tags on the garments!

I discovered Valerie through one of our mutual friends, and I have LOVED seeing all of the things she sews for herself and others (she even did ALL of the bridesmaid dresses in a recent wedding she was in! check that out here). She is an uber talented lady, and you will not regret following her blog EVER. Seriously, go check it out!

The skirt was very comfortable and I'm so glad I decided to buy it! I went out dancing in it, and not once was I worried about it moving up and showing my Britney. AND, it has POCKETS, people. I LOVE skirts/dresses with pockets! (and so does Val!)

I don't know if I will do more of these in the future or not, because posing by yourself in your apartment to capture photos of your outfit is weird. :)

    @Sam: Thanks for the shout out for the fashion post. I wasn't sure how I'd feel about it. ALSO, I can't wait for my next Dottie Adele purchase :)

    @Angie: Thank you lady! I'm not too big on tights/nylons, just because I get very hot natured. That might change once COLD hits though!

    @Valerie: umm no. I LOVE the skirt! I went back and forth so much on what I wanted to use my coupon for, but I'm so happy I chose the original NEED from your shop. Thank you for opening it!! I've loved looking through it all! and thank you for the compliment about my outfit :)

    @Shalyn: thank you! the skirt is completely the work of Valerie, the comment before yours!
