Perfectly Pleated Plaid

I made this skirt a few weeks ago.  I love that it's plaid!  It was fun getting the plaid pattern to match.  Much easier than I though it would be.  I didn't intend for the skirt to be as full as it is, but I love the outcome.  It sort of makes me feel like a modern 50's housewife.  tee hee.

Well, the year is winding down.  2012 will be here before we know it.  What are your NYE plans?  And more importantly, what are you going to wear?!!!!

{shirt: Lacoste | skirt: DIY'd by me | heels: Nine West | bag: Tahari | necklace: F21 | watch: Michael Kors | sunnies: Rayban}

Love, S

You always look fab girl!! Love it. It's such a fun palette to work with. I'm probably going with a silk sequin dress that I wore for Christmas haha! Haven't had time to really shop for a holiday dress or new year's!

Well I hope you have a wonderful NYE & New Year's girl! XO
