I decided--rather last minute, mind you--to make it button down the front as a unique touch. Of course, I had already cut out my waistband piece, so this skirt is a waist-cincher! I don't mind it though, since I feel pretty fantastic when I wear it!
I had planned to hem up most of the red portion, but my husband remarked that he rather liked the tea length, and I like the glamorous, more formal element it adds, so I left it. I can always hem it shorter in the future if my mood changes!
My BFF also gave me a new Kat Von D lip stain, and this was my first time trying it out. I LOVE IT. It's the "Outlaw" shade, and it stays on beautifully! I've eaten cookie dough and milk while writing this post, and it STILL looks great! It doesn't even feel like I'm wearing anything on my lips, which is how I prefer it. I highly recommend it!
