sunnies - RayBan | top L, jewelry - Forever 21 | skirt - made by Vee 
bag - H&M | wedges (similar), 9 - Guess via DSW

About a month ago, I saw Vee's post on Tumblr about making custom skirts, so you know I jumped at the chance to have a couple of them made for me.  ;)  I wound up choosing a pink stripe fabric and this purple floral fabric.  The floral reminds me of Hawaiian prints, only I think it's a lot more wearable of a print than the bright tropical ones.  Vee was wonderful to work with, and made and shipped my skirts super quickly.  Plus, they're great quality and super comfy, and I love that they're perfectly tailored for my shape.  Thank you so much, Vee!  Or as they say on the islands, mahalo!  :D


PS: If you're into sewing, make sure you check out Vee's other Tumblr, Fatty Sewing Club.  It's awesome to see so many babes making their own clothes!  And it makes me think I need to start sewing again, too.  :)

    Super cute skirt. I really want to learn how to sew...I actually apprenticed for a seamstress in my teens...and learned nothing (not for lack of her trying)! Youth is wasted on the young!

  2. Love the skirt. Looks kinda classy but with a twist! I wish I knew how to sew but...


  3. Thank you Katrina! I love it too! I can sew super easy stuff, like the skirt above, but rarely have the time or patience for it. LOL My mom knows how to sew, so I have her for any questions or problems I have. :)

  4. Haha, I know what you mean! I could barely make this myself (if I tried!). :D
