It's Mailbox Mavens time again!
I introduced you to Christina the other day, and well, here's another fab piece borrowed from her closet.  Here's how she wore it:


... and of course, my spin:

Her challenge, if we chose to accept, was to wear it at the natural waist.  That was fine with me, because it didn't look very good worn any lower.  It took me a while to figure it out, but a couple of safety pins later, and I had it.  Now, I love it.  Christina, I take no responsibility if this gets "lost in the mail."  Just kidding.  No, really, I am ...

I just love this shirt.  During my recent visit to Plato's Closet, I tried it on and then decided not to get it.  What was I thinking?!  So, a few days later, I just had to make another trip just to get it.  Luckily, I remembered about where I picked it up.  Though, it was still like looking for a needle in a haystack.  If the haystack were a slightly overpriced consignment shop that offers the most patronizing little bits of cash for perfect clothing.  Or worse yet, nothing at all.  Anyway ...

  1. That skirt is super adorable on you. I'm glad you found one at a reasonable price for keeping, and I can't wait to see the other ways you'll style it.

  3. I have this skirt! I struggle with how to wear it because of the fit. SAFETY PINS...why didn't I think of that? Definitely needs a fitted top. You wear it well.

  6. I have that skirt (in a different color) and rarely wear it because it fits weirdly, I'm going to have to take note and safety pin it up!

  8. I love the sash with this skirt. I actually thought it was part of it until I scrolled down to the second picture.
    The prints together make this look so fun!

  9. I was coveting the shirt even before you turned around! I wouldn't be able to wear it to work (there's a huge Willow tree tatooed right there) but man I really want it for the summer! The scarf belt is the perfect touch!

  25. I like how you added the skirt to the skirt. I actually thought it was part of it until I saw the outer photo!
    Oooh and I love scoop neck tops like that, they always feel so ballet and pretty.

  26. I love this skirt! And your take on it is perfection. The scarf adds just the right amount of dimension (not that the skirt doesn't already do that). Hell yeah Mavens!
