Any of you ever have days where you go “What today needs is a big swishy skirt?”
- Maroon cardigan – thrifted
- Choir skirt – self made
To be fair, I’m just booting around the house doing homework (numerical integration methods — fun times!) but this is far from the first time I pulled this sort of thing. I adore this skirt, and when overdressing is required it’s my standby. I call it my choir skirt because I made it back in the first year of undergrad when I needed a fancy black skirt for my choir performance; I wore it for six years of choir performances afterwards. I miss my old choir tremendously — the university choirs here are either exasperatingly bad or made entirely of music students. The other neat thing about this skirt is that it’s LOUD. It’s lined in nylon, so when I walk it makes a very distinctive “swish swish swish” sound. I didn’t know any better when I made it, and now it’s a pretty integral part of the skirt. Plus it has nice big pockets! I love it to bits, and it probably cost me all of about $10 to make.
Numerical integration, on the other hand?
I’m so fed up with it I can’t even take a good picture of me with it.
